A Entire New Home

You aren’t even going to acknowledge our home after this renovation replace! I positive don’t. Solar Constructions has been doing a wonderful job turning it from home to barn and again to accommodate! 

Here’s what the upstairs bed room seemed like once I ended our demo week weblog submit:

Right here’s what it seemed like earlier than from this view:

And right here’s the way it seemed just a few days later when the dormer was full! 

WINDOWS!!!!!!!! And headspace. And a lot mild! 

From the other aspect:

Earlier than:

And now:

In fact it feels so open as a result of there aren’t any closets or toilet partitions, and the ceilings go all the best way up. It can really feel rather less open and ethereal when the drywall goes up, however for now I’m loving how open all of it feels. 

Partitions Coming Down

A giant a part of this renovation is opening up the wall between the kitchen and the storage. That wall couldn’t come down till the cinder blocks and brick that sat on prime of it additionally got here down.

So after the dormer was constructed, the outer wall of the home got here down one block at a prime. 

Beginning on the prime till the entire bed room was open air! 

It was loopy to stroll or drive by the home at this level! Folks needed to surprise what was taking place. It seemed just like the aspect simply exploded out!

Demoing the Roof Deck

The roof deck that we used 8 occasions in 8 years was subsequent to go till you would see proper down into the storage! 

Demoing The Kitchen

As soon as the blocks and bricks on prime of the wall had been gone, they might begin to demo the kitchen wall we wanted to open up all alongside. 

First the kitchen was disassembled (it’s going to Habitat)

Non permanent Wall

After which they put up a brief wall to carry up the ceiling joists. 

They usually chipped away at it till it crumbled to the bottom. 

I didn’t need to be the one to need to shovel all of that heavy weight within the dumpster! These guys work so laborious.

Thomas has been the “workplace man,” assembly with potential purchasers and doing the entire enterprise issues for years now, however he’s been getting soiled with the crew and doing what he can. 

Welcome to our barn!

The joke of this week was that our home was principally an open barn : )

You possibly can see how a lot of the roof they changed on this pic.  

The brand new kitchen beam

Subsequent a large beam went in to carry all of the joists into place. Speak about heavy work!

Beam is in!

New Kitchen Ceiling Joists

After which the brand new ceiling may go in, hooked up to the brand new beam. 

Upstairs Outer Wall Framed + Storage Room

You possibly can see the doorway into the brand new storage room. This wall couldn’t be constructed till there was a beam which couldn’t go in with a ton of blocks on prime! It’s all a snowball impact. 

This new attic / storage room will home a few of our HVAC and seasonal stuff like skis and Christmas containers! 

Non permanent Kitchen Wall Comes Down

As soon as the beam was in place, they might join the outdated kitchen aspect ceiling joists to that with brackets and the short-term wall got here down. Now it’s one large room! (Thomas additionally demoed the outdated kitchen ceiling too.) 

New aspect porch

The framing for the brand new aspect porch went up so the brand new roof may sit on prime of these beams. This aspect porch is likely one of the issues I’m most enthusiastic about! 

Roofline Framing

As soon as the brand new partitions and ceiling had been in, they might body the brand new roof! For a weekend it was a easy tarp whereas we waited out the weekend rain. 

And in a matter of hours on Monday morning that they had constructed a roof!

New Roof

We’re getting a brand new black steel roof that can cowl the entire new and outdated elements. It must be going up on the finish of April.
