The house is ours. We got keys Friday!
I wasted no time getting into the walls!
We’re taking this wall out so wanted to see what was in there. Shouldn’t be too difficult to put a beam across to hold up the roof!
But we had a contractor coming to quote the work, and stopped there.
On to the master bedroom. The previous owner (who lives next door) used the closed-in garage as an office, but we want to use it as the master. It is adjacent to the laundry room which we will be remodeling into a laundry room/closet. The master has an 8" step up into the laundry so we wanted to make it flush… let the raising begin!
Here’s the step up into the laundry room.
Baseboards and a strip of drywall removed. Perimeter framing installed.
And here is the end of the day yesterday. Most of the joists are in. I was short by two 10’ 2x6s so I started on the reinforcing.
Things I learned… I’m WAY out of shape.
I plan to have all the joists and bracing done by the weekend. Plywood should go down shortly thereafter. I drastically underestimated how much construction adhesive and screws I would need.
