I’ve written previously about that fact that we’ve been thinking about adding on to our house. Well, we’ve decided to go ahead with the addition, and our contractor will be taking the first tangible steps this morning when he tears out our old deck.
As I noted previously, we’re adding on off the back, thereby expanding our dinette, creating a new and larger laundry room, and creating a new closet for one of our bedrooms (which sleeps Sons #1 and #3). The deck will be replaced with a new (and larger) one, and we’re also converting the boys’ old closet into a pantry (closed up on their side, opened up on the dinette side) and turning the old laundry room into a nice, centrally-located powder room.
Finally, we’re adding on a small storage building/workshop out back. Think “shed” but nicer, in that it will be on a concrete slab with electrical service as well as roofing/siding to match our house.
Depending on the weather, the entire process should take about two months. But how long it will take is anybody’s guess.
