More Inside Views

View into the bathroom. The toilet and vanity will be on this wall. You might also note that the guys were able to use some scrap wood. Thanks for saving us money!

View towards the shower.

View from the bathroom to the outside door.

View into the old house towards my wonderful husband that just made me some biscuits and gravy. The opening between the old house and the addition will start at the window on the right. We might put shelves in the old window space.


View from the outside door. The kitchen is to the left, the new bedrooms to the right, the bathroom is in front of you where you see the window, and the washer and dryer will be in front of you where the purple drywall is.

Also from the outside door, shifted a bit to the right.

One Step at a time

Things are moving right along! We have interior walls now and I'll post those pics later today. The walls and ceiling are in and insulated, so it is a much warmer work environment for Dean and Bill. We are ever so happy with how it has turned out!

Hopefully for the last time

So two years ago I was digging a trench for a new sewer.

I had to dig again to re-route part of it, because, (who knew at the time) we'd be adding on to the house! We were hoping it would be outside of new foundation walls, but no such luck.

Spent about an hour digging the adjusted main line (below, on right of photo) as well as most of the hole for the new clean-out (filled in, where the white dot is at the top-right).

After about 2 hours this afternoon, all the trenches, except for where the new bathroom will be (bottom left), are filled and soak-in.
