Muh new house -
    #12037994 - 02/16/10 03:34 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Most of the work was done by contractors (I was general - ) but here's some shots of the projects I did in my new home - Obviously I'm more of a wiring/electrical guy than a carpenter, but I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty if there's someone with a clue telling me what to do.

Electrical - Doing the Panel work


Cable/Network mainline


Rack in the basement (don't judge, it's a work in progress)


My wife and I spent 3 weeks hand dipping every single shingle on this house before they went up:

You ended up with a pretty steep yard there.

How much property with it? It looks like it is in an area with no other houses.

It's 1 acre.  We're on 1 corner of the lot with it sloping down and away in both directions from us.  It's less than ideal if you're looking for usable grass areas.  We're planning on some terracing, but haven't really gotten that far yet on the plans.

There are homes around, but we do have some space.  The closest one by far is unfortunately an old run-down rental with a pretty high turn-over rate.  But overall I really like most of my neighbors.

Ill post more shots later.. For now I'm gonna go pass out :smile:

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Ok, here's a rough cronicle from beginning to end:

Diggin in the dirt:


Foundation layout


Basement walls going up:


Drainage plumbing going in:


The obligitory handprints:


Daylight basement before any windows and doors:


Some of the basement framing:


This beam was one of the single most expensive parts of the house, it it allows me to have a large open space without the need for a bunch of support pillars:


The subfloor goes down:


The walls go up:


The roof framing begins:


Framing mostly done:


Dry at last, dry at last, dry at last!


Our daily visitors:


Windows in, exterior starting to look like a house:


Yes, a REAL wood burning fireplace:


Here is the 3 week production line of hand-dipping every single shingle on that house:


Between electrical and low voltage, I have 2+ miles of wire in the house:


The deck and the exterior work.  I routed all the light and outlet boxes myself.  The router paid for itself in about 6 of them.


Kitchen bump out, and our outside covered patio.  Nice lapboard pine ceiling :smile:


Entertainment center from the great room.  Opposite side is the entertainment center for the master bedroom:


Shingles almost done!


Before and after  skylight, speakers, and canned lighting:


Septic drainage field:


Birch floors in, starting the cabinetry in the kitchen (the fuckers scratched the floor moving the cabinets too....)


Starting and finishing the master bathroom:


Some of my handywork:


And the deck:





Hope you like :smile:

For a living I do what ever my wife tells me to do :smile:

For money, I'm a Network Administrator.


I did all the wiring for the house, electrical, network, audio, cable, phone etc.  My wife just yelled at a bunch of other dudes for the rest of it :smile:

Pretty impressive. I'm not really a fan of separate tub and shower, but it looks really nice.

Make sure you put those traction stickers in. Slipping in the shower hurts...

really? I think if you got the space it is a must. Better resale value as well.

So far so good, but it's only been in for about 6 months.  It's hella nice though taking a shower in a completely enclosed box.

I'm interested to know how the birch flooring is working out.  Engineered Pre-finished or strip?  And what was the cost comparison to oak?

Little more expensive than oak.  Not sure what you mean by strip, but it wasn't engineered.  Full birch all the way through.

It's holding up as well as expected.  Which means there's scratches from my 80 and 60 pound dogs all over the place.  We just consider it "character" :smile:
