  • my summer project.

    not really welding, although i did weld up some supports to hold the hole thing up off the sunken cement piller.
    with the announcement of a new baby on the way we needed to get our 2nd son out of our room to make room for #3.
    this is a project that should have only taken me a week at best, but i just don't work the way i used to. so any way 8 months latter. the carpet is in and i only have a few small finish molding jobs to go.
    i ran a separate circuit for the heater to make shore he dose not get cold, but with all the insulation it seems needless so far. but we will keep it as a back up just in case as i did not get a duct from the house heater into his room. maybe this coming summer i will make that happen.
    at the same time as i built this one i also dry walled my other sons room i added on 5 years ago but used paneling instead of dry wall. so i figured might as well git it taken care of at the same time.
    my other son's room is pained in revers of this one. he has 2 long green walls 2 short blue with blue carpet. this one has 2 long blue, 2 short green and forest green carpet. both have yellow ceilings.

    any way, just thought i would share my summer's head ack with you all.

    the out side is finished now, but this is the only pic i have at the time, no idea what i did with the finished pic's ?????? but you get the idea.
    with way too much wind, insulation was a top priority.

            Good deal guys!

            I have a basement suite project that I have been working on and off... well mostly off I guess for the last couple of years. We got flooded one summer, I did the clean up and tear out pretty quick. Finished the bathroom almost right away, took awhile to get the kitchen finished (I hate cabinets and counters!!!) and now I have a closet to finish framing and drywall plus repair the drywall in the laundry room, paint and then flooring.

            Hmm that reminds me, I guess I should get back at that!!!

              i gotta say the most fun i ever had at a job was building houses. loved going to work, till it nearly put me in a chair.
              but life goes on, slower now thats all.

                You might be slower now but at least you still don'thave to pay someone else to do it!! Keep at it !!

                  you got that right !!

                  You might be slower now but at least you still don't have to pay someone else to do it!!

                  yea, no kidding there. no way it would have happened if i had to shell out for some one else to do it, i was expensive.
