My Ongoing Home Remodel Project (update 10-3-09) We'll, i'm going to share what i've been doing, i've always wanted my own sticky project thread, hopefully a mod will be kind enough to make this one. here are the before pictures, http://www.tweak3d.net/forums/off-topic/my-new-house-pics-46160/ and these are before i owned it. http://www.tweak3d.net/forums/off-topic/i-just-bought-43637/ This is the new driveway, partially completed, and the future garage to the left. so far i've brought in 60 yards of gravel and i'm probably going to need another 30. the neighbor scraped all the topsoil and leveled out everything for me, for free. there was a big ass tree and a bunch of little ones there, that i took down and ground out the stump. the trees in the swamp were topped by the electric co and i'm going to cut the rest down and fill that thing in. my new mailbox! just planted some seed here. this area was filled with rocks, 2x2 concrete paver's, cinder blocks. a busted ass sidewalk and some overgrown dying trees. tore it all out Saturday, the neighbor let me use the skid loader, graded it and threw down some seed. The garage and driveway, garage is going to extend to where the football is, and out about to the piece of drain tile. total size when finished will be 50'x34' All the crap i've found , and dug up in my yard, going to be buried front view of the future garage. of the house, still have to tear up the front yard and regrade going to remove that "hump" and make it a continual slop down from the neighbors yard. the old driveway, dug out all the gravel and used as a base for the new. the big ass stump we tore out with a stump grinder and skid loader. the wood pile so far back of the house, cleared a lot out of here. what used to be a 30" stump didnt have time to grind that one. more fucked up yard, and a 280$ pile of dirt. i poured a a/c pad, new gas service and a temp gas line for my dryer. this is going to be the a/c for my garage, i'm buying a new Trane high efficiency unit for the house when i get my bonus. its hard to tell by this pic, but that area of the yard is so fucked up from when they drilled the well that i cant even cut it. back corner of the garage is about 30" below grade, i was discussing with wiskas a way to build this up with some block. lower back yard, cleared a bunch of dead trees out of here, on top of that ridge is another half acre, that i and the neighbors plan on planting a huge garden on next spring. theres 3-4 apple trees up there now. a very attractive sat dish new fridge, 200 bones dining area, probably going to end up tearing this tile up, i installed it wrong. need a new front door. unfinished living room. new electric, data and sat for all rooms, this is my office, i refinished the floors, textured the walls, new electrical and data, and redid the closet. i started on the trim behind my desk but still ahve to finish, and get a new solid door. old floor vs new did a knockdown texture in the office, painted this room (and all rooms) and a new light. new high efficiency shitter. new shower, did all the tile, ran new copper pipes. kept the old tub tho. this is my room, smallest, didnt do much except paint it and a new light. beer fridge in the basement, old oil tank, sold the old oil furnace for 125$. i gotta get rid of this thing, somehow. the basement. shit everywhere. i'm tearing out the whole duct system, and replacing it (thinner trunks because i hit my head on them) this winter when i put the new ac and furnace in. build a pedestal for the washer and dryer. I've only moved the dryer so far. new chainsaw on the left, 18" echo. started with a homelite against 950's advice, whell that sucked so i took it back, got this one because i only had store credit at home depot. this one is going back soon for a 20" sthil or husquverna another new project, repiping the entire house, new rinnai tankless water heater, iron filter and a used water softener from my dad's girlfriend. i'm also going to have to gaspipe the house. washer/.dryer pedestal, all temped in because i didn't have a dryer. going to put a double utility sink to the left, and the furnace is going on the right. can't forget about the wired gigabit network, this will all go on a rack someday with a server, ran cat6 through out the whole house, all inwall with keystones and faceplates.
