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.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
