Our Home Addition

This is the outside of our addition. My wife decided we needed to expand after our kids left heme, to prepare for our grandkids. It only took me almost 4 years to build, since I could only work on it after work and on weekends. But my wife was mostly patient with me.

It doesn't take long to frame and close em in, but all that detail work? I get 4 years.
I was a builder for a handful of years.
Nice work.

Thank y'all. I hired out the shingles, the Sheetrock, the brick outside. My soninlaw and his father helped with the rafters, and my brother laid the tile. Other than that, it was mine to do. I was totally overwhelmed at times, but with my wife believing in and encouraging me, got er done. I'm just glad it's mostly over. Still have to make a mantel.

Yeah, I noticed the mantel
Yet that's minor. Good work, (from a builder/architect.)
