It was suggested that there may be too much narrative with the description of the renovation, but I say "What the heck, it's a blog." and besides it'll serve as a personal journal. I'll enjoy looking back at it (assuming they will have blogs 30 years from now). Anyway, my ramblings may be the reason that I don't keep the blog current. So, I'll try to be brief. Besides, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Here is the new door configuration. We moved the door over to the right. We took the old foyer and made it a bedroom, and added a closet, taking away from the utility room a little.
We ripped off all the old siding, and windows. With the new interior framing we were ready for the new stuff. This was Sunday in the morning. We had to complete this side of the building and paint it before the inspector returns back to work on Monday.
New siding & windows, done by Sunday afternoon.
Electrical & plumbing is roughed in, and the insulation and drywall are going up.Drywall takes forever, by the way.
