New Guy from GA

Hey everyone,
As long as I learn just a little bit of expertise from all of the great userís here I will be doing good.

I am from South Georgia, and I am about to tackle some light remodeling. My wife and I are finally expecting our first child, and our 1200sqft home is going to get a little smaller. We have 250sqft in a small garage that we will be closing in that will double as a play room, and laundry room. I have a good friend that is a contractor, and he will be closing in the front with the windows/framing/siding, and raising the floor to be even with the house floor in the garage. I had planned on raising the floor myself, but due to the price I am being charged, it only makes sense to let them tackle it in a day so the Washer/Dryer can be put back in for the time being, versus me working on it in a few weekends.

After the above and some ductwork being added (the AC unit is a few years old and was upsized, so it will handle the additional space), the room is 65-70% done, and ready for me to take my time over the next 7 months left to complete it.

Really plan to keep it simple by framing a wall in the back of the room and having folding doors to access the washer/dryer/shelves and a small side room for storage/pantry. The rest of the room will be wide open.

I am sure I will have many questions along the way (I apologize in advance).

Thanks to everyone that offers their help on this forum!
