Project home addition

23 posts in this topic

Here's a little project I have been working on. Added almost 1000 sq ft to our rambler and a second walkout.

Looks good. What kind of space are you adding? Is that some toungue and groove for the walls/ceiling in one of the pics?

Thanks Coach. It will be a living room and Rec. room. The basement will be storage for the time being.

I just picked up half the load of knotty pine 6" T&G. Will be doing the walls and ceiling with that.

Looks good Roofer.

Having a walk out is definitely worth the extra time and money for drop footings.

Ha, you would know more than I do about that. smile

I will be busy working and working on this for awhile. Will have the inside finished in a few weeks, if I ever have some time to work on it.

Did 12 square off and on today and will be working on the addition tonight. It's getting close to the ends of my wits, but it's better than sitting on the couch with a case of beer I guess. wink

I have about 3/4 of the pine done now, and will be picking up the rest this week. I will have some more pics soon.

Looks good! It will be great when it is all done.

Do I see a brick ledge on the outside or am I seeing things?

The ledge is for a concrete slab in the future. The retaining wall will continue to the new addition.

I was wondering since I did not see brick on the rest of the house.

Way to think forward enough to plan for the future. The costs now is minimal, but would cost a lot in the future, and we will not have any heaving to deal with on the new slab.

A few updated pics. I am finished with the woodwork for the most part. I made all of the extension jambs and trim out of the knotty pine left over from the walls.

Applying a few coats of polycrylic now.

There will be just regular carpet on the floor. Thought about wood because my neighbor does it for living, but too much wood echoes. It pretty loud in there now with nothing to absorb the sounds.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
