Our Renovation ~ Addition Sub Floor Complete

Shortly after we received our first lumber delivery Travis got to work on the addition.
The floor joists & sub floor were complete the very next day.
We could actually walk inside part of our new house... very exciting.
I can't wait to see how fast the walls go up!

If you are wondering why we have left some of the rickety walls in the existing house,
they will eventually be removed. They are providing some structural support (believe it or not).
When our addition is complete Travis will eventually tie the new roof into the old roof and remove that small hip you see on the left.
He will remove the load bering wall, or what's left of it, & tie the two old & new together.


  1. How exciting for you! Once the walls go up you will have a much better feel for the size of the house. :-)

  2. I agree with Diane. Once the walls are put up, you would have a much better feel for your house. Another thing, you can also see what changes have to be made, like how you would connect the old roof to the new one. This may help you decide if you have to replace the old roof completely.


I love your comments! I appreciate each and every cottage visitor and hope you willll come back again soon! Carrie
