The Remodel

One bathroom and a partially finished basement.  It was only a matter of time.  This year we decided it was time to do some remodeling on the house.  By "some remodeling" I mean a whole lot of remodeling.

Current House

The current house is a 1960's mid-century modern that we love.  We just want it bigger.  Here's what it looks like now:

 

Demo

The house had a fair amount of asbestos in it so when it was time to start demolition they wasted no time.  After the first day the kitchen and bathroom were both gone.  Demo was complete in about a week.

Framing

We're now into framing, and we're almost complete.  The second story is framed and the roof is on.  That's great, because we already had two inches of hail in the house while the roof was off.

Drywall & Insulation

All the windows are now in.  Wiring and plumbing are done.  They've insulated and now they're starting to hang drywall.  It's coming along nicely.

Drywall Mudding and Exterior Work

They've started tapingn and mudding the drywall. Also, the exterior brick is now painted and they've started adding the Hardiplank to the exterior. When you walk through you can get a good feel for how the house will feel now.

Cabinets and Flooring

They've laid the flooring and have started to install cabinets.  The cabinets all have soft closures throughout the house and the wood grain was skinned from an entire tree so everything blends and matches.

Filling in the Blanks

We're almost done!  Interior work is moving along nicely and they've started on the outside deck. Exterior painting is all done.  They've started on the low voltage wiring.  It's starting to look really good.

All Moved In

In September we moved back in.  We're nearly done!  Just a few odds and ends are left, but we're fully living in the house and love it.

Harmless Havoc Meets Azure

Brian in Geek | 0 Comments December 30, 2012

If you're reading this Harmless Havoc has successfully been transferred to Windows Azure.  I've been running my own blog and email servers since I've had a blog, and I have posts that date back to 1999.  That's a pretty impressive run given that my "servers" are just standard computers and my "internet backbone" is a DSL connection with a single static IP address.  You can do a lot with that.More...

Cole let us sleep in this year:  he got us out of bed at 6:30.  This is a vast improvement over years past.  Once year we were done opening presents before it was daylight.
