Thumbs up

Latest Addition...


This was my biggest undertaking yet...guy owned a duplex, w/his mother-in-law occupying the adjacent unit....(eek!)....anyway, they wanted a sunroom at first, but decided they'd just go ahead and add another story to the whole project...which resulted in two HUGE bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs for the grandkids....

Amenities included in the project ranged from separate "Florida-style" sunrooms downstairs for each unit (appx 700 ftsq/200 ftsq), full-sized baths upstairs for the kiddies, cantilevered bench bay w/storage for the boy's room, tankless water system, sunken bed area for the girl & many more....

All in all, a great project, with few snags and a helluva nice reference...

You know, the missus asked the same thing xD ......

I can't seem to find any of the interior or the frame phase...but I know I must have a half a gig of 'em somewhere...*sigh*

Thus are the woes of too many tasks, too little time, and too many SD cards....anybody got a shovel?
