What’s New?

 

New addition framing
And the framing begins …

I have had so many requests for a construction update—so it’s finally time. The last addition update was at the start of foundation, electrical and plumbing work. I hate electrical and plumbing work— you can’t see any beautiful results! We are now into the framing, decking and roofing phase—tons of amazing results now. My new office is framed in and I can’t wait to move lissyparker.com to its new headquarters. The new pavilion room and porches are all in place, as is the covered walkway. The plan is to tie the cedar decking into the old deck and the side porch is, well, GONE! I thought it was a little wobbly, but it turns out it was rotten. We had to rip it off down to the house frame! Yikes … thinking that was just a little unsafe. Take a quick look at my Construction Update.

Up, up and away

 

Men setting beams on a porch
It took six men to set this beam in place—and grills are everywhere (Mr. P loves grills).

 

Covered walkway in cedar
The covered walkway will be screened in—no more bugs!

 

Cedar decking instillation and mountain view
I never tire of this view—or this porch.

 

Spanish cedar decking and porch
Spanish cedar decking ties all of the porches together.

 

Gravel truck and Cherry Blossoms
Cherry blossoms decorate the newly-delivered gravel.

 

Garage demolition and walled garden foundation
New footings will be poured for the garage addition and walled garden.
