Extreme Makeover - MY home edition!!
« on: April 25, 2011, 10:29 PM »
Well, we've been talking about thing for the last ten years and this week we finally pulled the trigger and construction started. We are adding over 800 square feet to our home. There will be a huge new master bedroom/bath in the backyard. The living room and family rooms are doubling in size. Best of all the STAR WARS OFFICE WILL RETURN! ETA for this project is September.

This thread I will update weekly with the progress. Once the Star Wars office is built, I'll update my collection thread with the decorating and setting back up of my collection.

This first sets of pictures are about four days worth of work stripping the stuco off the house, removing trees and jack hammering the side walks and side patio. There will be a new retaining wall built about six feet into the hill side.  The new house will actually go all the way to the current hillside.

They have just completed the sewage line to the backyard master bedroom.


The ground is leveled out for the new room.


Trenches are being dug for the footings.


Trenches are being dug for the front room footings.


Hillside being dug into for the new retaining wall. The house will be extended to where the old hillside was. We need a three foot path added here.

Those keeping track at home. We now have the waste and water lines in and the rebar has been put in the footings. We should be ready for concrete this monday.


Cat on a disassembled roof.


New conservatory for the new grand piano.




Family room being extended out. New retaining wall will be built.






New master bedroom and bath.


The bedrooms on the side will be extended out to make room for a inner hallway to get to the master bedroom.

It's really starting to take shape.  Everything looks great so far!  Can't wait to see the next round of pics.

Thanks! The next round should show some framing. We are getting close to moving out so they can take roof off and redo the utilities.

That is really looking awesome Paul.  I bet you can't wait to get it done and moved in, haha.  Big projects are always the worst in how they change your life for a little while, but when they're done they're always so satisfying.

That is one angry looking kitty, he wants its roof back
The problem with America is stupidity I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself
