You can really see now how the addition is taking shape. When we first started designing the addition with Piet, it was quickly decided that trying to somehow "match" the look of our 1950s bungalow wouldn't work - mostly because 1950s bungalows aren't the size our finished house is going to be. So instead, we decided to go completely different and modern on the addition. If it's obvious you've added an extension to your house, why not make it stand out? So that's what you'll see with the roof line in particular, and soon the exterior finishing. It's going to be a beaut! As is the front that will completely maintain it's mid-century charm. The best of both really.
If you're friends with Jordan and me on Facebook, these photos will be anti-climactic because he posted a bunch of them yesterday. But for the non-Facebookers, here ya go - week three in photos:
A maze of concrete trenches for all the new plumbing in the basement:
Look at that roofline! Stunning!
The gods of Glenairlie doing some planning:
Forming deck posts:
Vinyl laid. Officially the first finished component!
Our old kitchen taking shape as a bathroom:
If all goes according to plan, week four will see some major exterior finishing, along with more electrical, plumbing, concrete and ducting. Have I mentioned how much FUN it is, watching this unfold?! Every time I visit I cannot believe THIS IS MY HOUSE! We feel very lucky indeed.
Onward week four...
