Day two was a little left over framing and then day three was a total roof job on both new and existing, they did remove old shingles before roofing the old areas. Again this was a total of one day for the Amish, about 10 guys.

This is looking into the new cathedral ceiling area.

After the reroof it was my turn at finishing this remodel. Keep in mind we lived in this the whole time. I started this in a June so I still had the hottest part of our summer to go.

The interior framing goes on.

This is looking into our kitchen. Did I say that living in this was like living in an attic! No insulation yet.

This is looking at what will be the new entertainment center.

The columns you see have a total of 36 pieces in them and that is OK but at this stage my wife says enough is enough so I had to cut all of them in the garage, NO MORE DUST!!!!

My entertainment center. As you can see my wife thinks we needed some color for a change. Go figure!

I hate drywalling.
Ok. now i can see the transformation from a nice house to a great house. Yah… love the roof. Oh and a skylight in the kitchen. I’m drooling.

When we had our addition built, the best part was sleeping in the bedroom with the unfinished walls/roof. I loved falling asleep surrounded by studs (haha that sounds funny) and staring up at the wood frame of the roof.
The saddest day was when we covered up the frame.

Loking great Roger.

You hired a work crew who normally raise barns, to raise your roof. Great transition.

I was wondering about the T.V. and couch being there in the middle of the drywalling. LOL. That is a dusty job. Looks like you were busy for quite a while. My wife had enough just building the shop. I don’t think we could handle that kind of a remodel while living in the house. Nice looking job.

Os, we did cover the couch when the drywalling was going on. This project took almost exactly 1 year to complete.

My computer was down for a few days, so I missed all this hard work. It turned out real nice.
