Starting a "build" thread for an addition thats going on to the house.. it's going to have an oddly shaped ~12x18 connector, and a 30x30 garage, both two story. Going to have a wide open loft area up top with vaulted ceilings for living space, and an open garage on the bottom with a lift and 12ft ceilings. There's already a 24x24 garage with a loft on the lot, but thats going to be a big shed and motorcycle storage area. The new part is going to be for working on cars only
The first pic is from last winter of the end where the addition is going. We had to tear down the old porch area since that slab is being taken out for the new foundation and all that.
I would have some other pics here that I thought I took yesterday, but I think I was too exhausted and forgot to actually turn the camera on or something.. either way, I don't have any real in progress pics.
Here's the floor and the roof section that we cut off. We had already taken the walls away to my sisters house so they could burn it in the bonfire.
The roof was a pain in the ass, had to knock off the support beams, then cut between the planks with a sawzall to get through the two layers of shingles and tar paper to make them into managable sized pieces
and here it is all cleared. They are supposed to start tearing up the yard tomorrow, so I'll get some pics of that.
Here's the flat tire we got while dropping off the scrap wood at my sisters house.. the bead on the wheel just tore somehow. It was so much fun changing a tire on the truck after spending two days demolishing a porch:
Here's part of the porch getting torched:
