We've recently been remodeling our house. We've rebuilt the room
on the back, putting a pitch roof on in place of the flat roof. Here
are some pictures of the house in process.
This picture is of the rebuilt back room taken from one end of the
house, before the siding is put on.
Another picture of the new room from a slightly different angle. The
insulation is stacked up in front of a window. Next to the window,
where the fireplace used to be, we built out so the TV would
actually be inset in the wall.
One more picture of the back room from the opposite side. This shows
the back door opening onto what will be a 9x12 porch.
This is a shot from inside the back room towards the house showing
the framing and the sliding glass door that is no more
This picture is from the glass door to the window just to the left
of the recessed TV/entertainment area.
This picture is taken from the sliding glass door looking towards
the outside wall. The silver section just behind the ladder is where
the fireplace used to be and is now the entertainment center. There
are windows on both sides of the recessed section and a window on
the right wall, which is next to the door.
Here's a great shot of the kitchen from the dining room. The sliding
glass door is off to the right. All of the old cabinets were pulled
out and Lori is either hammering in exposed nails or pulling them
out. This also shows the mess the wiring was in. We rewired the
whole kitchen before putting up sheetrock and the new cabinets.
This shot is the opposite of the shot above. I'm standing in the
kitchen taking a picture towards the dining room. The sliding glass
doors are on the left and the doorway on the right of the picture is
the hall leading to the bedrooms. The red tile on the floor of the
dining room was tough to get up. We scraped and scraped and scraped
until finally I rented an electric tile scraper that got it up in
about three minutes.
This picture is from the dining room towards the living room. The
fireplace is covered up with paneling so the cats wouldn't try to
Speaking of cats, here's Oreo.
And here's Mocha. She's the older of the two and didn't appreciate
us bringing Oreo home at first. But now they're great pals. Mocha
loves to climb and whenever ladders are around you'll usually find
her at or near the top.
This picture is of the living room after the sheetrock was put up
but before we painted.
Here's the kitchen and dining room. Note the bar has been added and
the sliding glass door is no more.
This shot is from the kitchen through the dining room into the TV
room, which didn't have sheetrock yet but did have insulation and
And so the saga continues. I'll post more picture as time goes
