That house is like a total illusion.
From the out side it looks rather small but when you go inside, they have it layed out and make use of all the space it makes it big.

Right now im in the mist of framing the interior walls in the bedroom here and the place has shrunk so much, lol (still love it and having fun).

Will post some pics in a week or so once all the walls are up and the pex "panels" are screwed down.

Some inside work i did over thanksgiving.
Over the last few days did some more work, will post pictures of that soon.


The wooden door is the entrance which leads to a small hall that runs next to the black on the house and then down to a stair-well to the basement. If you walk strait through the door you will head up three steps into the bedroom.





Back of the bathroom and small closet.
The front wall is not up yet, nor is the dividing wall/pocket-door that splits the small walk-in closet and bathroom. Main closet door is missing too.
The cabinets will be built into the walls (above the stairs). For the closet side i might toss up a cloths hander or something if not some kind of cabinet... who knows.





Front bathroom and small closet walls are up along with pocket doors.



Looking down the bathroom at the dividing door to the small closet.
Double sinks will go on the right.



That is the back side of the bathroom door slid open. Bathroom main entrance will be to the far right.
The two framed out walls closest to the camera is where urinal will go.




Where the shower will go along with the wall cut-out for alittle seat and shelves along with a shower head.








The "main" entrance to the bathroom.





The rest are of the basement and complete mess at the time.






Thats it for now...

Great thread!
Since you were good enough to drop in on mine, I figured I had better return the favor.
Pretty cool project. And coming along very nicely I would say.
What did the inspector have to say about the metal brackets you used to hang the stringers with?

The hangers for the floor joists are "over the top" hangers.
http://www.strongtie.com/products/co...b-b-ba-hhb.asp


The ones you see on the main (upper) floor for the trusses are not hangers, but hurricane straps (not sure which ones you are asking about).

He didn't have a problem with them and was happy i used the "over the top" hanger rather then the "face mount" ones.

I did screw up when i did the floor joist hanger and did not use and glue when seating the joist which is not a code violation, but he shook his head and said i should have known better or called him... hindsight always kicks ya in the butt

Funny you bring this up, some time this week im gonna call him for the framing inspection. Hes been really good about things. When i started the project i told him my back round and that ive never done anything like this before. Through the whole process he said just give him a buzz if i was confused or wanted to have him stop by. Just after the shell was up and the day i started to call around for shingler's i asked him to stop by and make sure the trusses where right and i didnt goof on any of the roof sheathing (not brain science, but we all can make dumb mistakes) and he popped between someone else's scheduled inspection... hes been really good so far.

Anyway, thanks for the comments.

What I was asking about was the stair stringers, not joists. You made up some super heavy duty metal plates which you bolted on.

you did use the word stringer and it when in one eye and out the other, sorry.
He had no problem with them and then called me un-conventional for the way i "fixed" them, lol.
Tossed a jack stud under the two stringers on each end just for alittle extra.

Yes, the jack stud would be a good idea. What we usually do in a case like that is to use a steel strap about 1 1/4" wide and about maybe a foot long.
Nail it under the top of the end of the stringer and wrap it up and against the joist or beam - or whatever your framing is there - and that's it.
It may sound flimsy, but it works well and is easy to put in. Takes about 1 minute. Cheap too.
Your place looks like it is coming along really well!

Hello all...
Took a few months off (dec, jan, feb and most of march) and been slowly getting back into the swing of things.

Passed the framing and plumbing inspections (plumbing was fun... did a water test and took a bath as well (when the inspector says... "ok, were done - good job, but i want to watch you take the air-test-ball out" while he is stepping back - look out !)), have the electric about 80% done along with about 70-80% of the siding.

For the siding i ripped off the old aluminum side from the main part of the house, put up furring strips along with 3/4 rigid-sheet insulation on the main part of the house. Used furring strips because i didnt want to deal with removing the asbestos siding on the main house. Did some reading and seen this idea, people said the furring strips would help the asbestos to be held in place while nailing up the new vinyl (furring strips where nailed to the studs).


Heres some plumbing pics and siding:


Tankless heater for masterbath:
The white tag you see hangin off the hot line out of the heater is a note letting the next home ower know that there is a hot second hot water line run incase anything happens with the tankless heater they can just open and close acouple of valves and there will still be hot water to the bath above while the tankless unit is being worked on.




On the other side of the door is the old basment where the gas and water lines come from.



Old side where the lines pop through.




Toilet drain...
Ran into a jam with drilling the hole for the vent... ran out of room (poor planing) and drilling a 3-1/5 hole would have cut into the flange of the TGI joist, the inspector let a 2" vent fly.




Shower drain, trap and vent.



2x1-1/2x2 why that drops into the 3" line.
2" is for the shower and the 1-1/2 is for the sink which runs down the same bay.




3" line that run the peramitor.
The run on the right wall comes from the toilet anf then the shower and sink drop in. Even with the 8' 10" ceiling i was trying to keep every i could in the bays.




End of the run where it breaks though the old block wall at a 45 to a second 45 and then a sweeping 90 to the main houses drainage.






forum image/post limit... will continue in next post.

Stripping the old aluminum sidding... The flashing you see is covering the holes which where drilled acouple summers ago to get blowned insulation in.








First corner for the new siding. To the right of the door you can see the furring strips and 3/4 insulation




Insulation and furring strips.




New siding...




Alittle much brown... but hey


Need to hold off for a bit to finish the top, gonna hire out to have the old roofs shingles ripped off and have soffits installed.



Thats where things stand for now.
On the fornt of the house theres a picture window which will be replaced hopefully at the begining of next month (have a jeld-wen coming in the 30th of this month) and im holding off for putting in the last window of the addition intill they drop off the sheet rock, maybe the end of next month, so the font siding will sit as is intill then.

The nabors say the same about the color.
It was one of them things... white again ??? no, light tan or light yellow to match half the other houses around here, no... hummm... brown, sure that looks good

Im so bad with picking colors, guess this time it worked out.

If and when the day comes to replace the 2 ()styles of siding on our house, we'll probably go with white. That's mostly because of my track record with picking colors.

In '99 we had to have new shingles put on the roof. The roofer brought samples of colors to choose from. We should have looked at the samples outside in natural daylight.

I picked out a light brown or tan color. The shingles they put up look like a light orange color. It could have been their mistake too, I don't know.
