First House - Guttin Her and Doin It Right!


The north 39'x26' has a 4' crawspace under neath of the flooring.
Water + gas is coming in from the 2'x12' mark.
4"x8" Support Beam runs at the 14' vertical mark.

Im planning to build the 1st lvl concrete slab up with 2"x4" and the 2nd lvl concrete slab build it up with 2"x6" to the same lvl of the 1st lvl slab. That would give me enough room to run 3/4 or 1/2" lines to the garage for the wash sink out there. Which will give me a 7'6" ceiling. Only reason I am raising the floor is I would prefer to have a wood floor base to lay my flooring over + coldness of the concrete in the winter + room to run my hot/cold supply water lines to the garage.

I would love to put the kitchen/living room in the south side of the house. The only issue is the draining of the sink+dishwasher as well as a low ceiling in the living room/kitchen wouldn't seem right.

Concrete slab portion. *2nd + 3rd Bedroom*

As for the heat/ac duct issue, am I able to run my supply lines threw the attic and down threw a top plate to the bottom and have a wall bottom register?

Well hello everyone. I think im alive but barely after alot of stress with this project.

We came up with a floor plan that is set in stone, but reversed completely. Livingroom/Kitchen will be down by the garage now. I will upload the new sketch and more pics soon.

But I just took a pic today of the 2 concrete ugly ass rooms that were next to the garage or ust to be right.... These will be the livingroom/kitchen.

What has been done to the above picture.

All 5 exterior walls replaced. The 2 closest to the garage were moved back 4" to give the ceiling a bit more support. But in order to do that we had to replace over 50 block. The block that the orig walls were sitting on had very little to none mortar.

The wall that was between the two rooms was taken out. More of an open concept kitchen/living room concept.

Ceiling joists replaced in the smaller concrete room of the 2.

Rest of the house which I do not have pictures of atm. Sort of a quick list of what i've done to give you all an idea.

Exterior:
-Siding Removed
-Old windows removed
-Old gutters/soffit/fascia/fascia board Removed
-New soffit/fascia/fascia board/gutters
-New 3/4 OSB Installed over exterior outside walls 167' around house(Excluding garage)
-HouseWrapped
-New PVC Trim + Fiber Cement 7.25" siding
-New Construction 30"x54" 6 windows
-New Octagon windows installed bathroom windows.
-5 Exterior walls completely rebuilt
-75% existing window holes/walls had to be rebuilt in 24x36 area

This concrete room floor structure is my first solid inside project.

I haven't got to far in the 3 months I don't think but seeing as im doing all the work myself + working a day drywall hanging/finishing job.

Atleast 400 hours i've put into it.
