Something closer to real life.

The quick image we posted last time was too terrible to keep up for long (I blame the lack of time to get something up and the screaming kids that were running around when N was putting it together!).  Although very much still a draft, here’s an image that shows something more along the lines of where we’re hoping to be in the end.

Part of the complication/draft nature of the image is that our house is very much a collection of parts.  Each component of our house reads separate from the next in the elevations and none of them align with one another!  We’ve been designing the addition in 3D to try and understand how all the pieces will fit together but we’ll really need to be here, on site with the contractor and his framing crew the day they are building it to get the roof lines and proportion correct.  This image is going to be our guide but we’re sure there will be some modifications during the build.  Soon to come- the proposed floor plan!

Here we go again…

Just over 3 years ago, we shared this post… and wow. It’s almost hard to believe it’s the same house!

And now, the renovation bug has hit us again! That’s not to say that we’ve been sitting around eating bon-bons on the couch for the last 3 years, lol. Far from it! But, after becoming a family of 4 last year and knowing since day 1 of buying this charming little palace of ours that we wanted to add a master bath and closet, we figured now was as good a time as any to get ‘er done, right? I mean, we just went out back to the money tree growing in the backyard and filled a few buckets up to make it happen! Or as G likes to say, we went to the money store… 😉

Anyway, stay tuned to this space for updates and thanks for joining our wild ride! It’s about to get a lot messier around these parts…

I couldn’t resist applying the ‘ocean ripple’ filter to this “before” image, since it’s pretty true to what the house looked like from our across-the-street-neighbor’s perspective during the last 18 days of consecutive rain we had! PS – the original sunroom is what’s getting completely redone and added onto, for all of you non-architects out there! Don’t worry – the whole house is not getting a facelift as this sketch implies, lol.
