Add-on coming together

This is one sturdy mudroom! The roof is up and I will tell you that was not a easy task. As for me Trying to help keep those heavy boards from sliding back off while being pushed up, I was sure I was going to cause more damage than good!! They are up, most of the wall boards are up and most importantly NO Bodies or boards fell to the ground!!

If all goes right our heating/cooling system and ductwork will be delivered today!

e are still at it! Added more support.. this is one sturdy room! I will tell you putting the boards on the roof was not a easy job. Trying to help slide them up without letting go, I was sure I was going to do more damage than good! NO boards or bodies fell to the ground! Whooooooo what a relief!

2/3rds of the way done

Our kitchen and bathroom windows in. The kitchen windows are in place of having wall cabinets.  Now it is time for our mud/utility room ! Which it really is mud/clay at the moment. Of course there is a brick driveway or patio under the dirt.  We are always finding stuff here, just no jar of money yet!  The last wall is coming down to reframe as a inter wall and entry doorway. Should have the concrete laid this week so we can frame it out. Our front door and a back door that leads to the little girls play area, (we wont forget the puppy door) will be in the mud room. Hopefully they will leave their mud where it belongs…but I kinda doubt it 🙂

We got more windows in

Window time!

The chimney is down. What a mess that made, but the concrete blocks and bricks will sure make a great forge and fire pit. So we have framed out the back wall for windows, and we are thinking the back of the house should be considered the front :).  We still need to cut out and frame for the back door. I will tell you deciding on where to put each window and the doors was a tough decision. Who would have thought that would be so hard to decide. Normally you plan your furniture around windows and doors, but we are planning around furniture lol. Kirk had to spray paint where the interior walls and cabinets are going to be for me so I could figure it out.  Our first window is in!!!!We also got the hot and cold water lines ran and ready to add plumbing. Old wiring has been torn out and new home run wires ran.  Hopefully in within a week we will have the concrete poured for our add-on mud/utility room. It is coming along…

New Subfloor going in

We started laying our subfloor today, or should I say Kirk did  🙂 We still have to screw it down good.  Now we can hang out in the kitchen and both bathrooms!  I tell you it is a great feeling being able to get the floor done. The heat did slowed us down a bit but we are getting it.  I was on a chair pulling more staples!!! I think the rafters have just as many staples and the floor did. I am starting to think the house was held together with staples. As so as we clean up the rafters of the staples, nails , the remaining plastic and insulation and then it will be ready for the new also.
