Hello All,


28 y.o. from the burbs of Philly... currently have been adding a new garage, 2nd floor and renovated pretty much EVERYTHING on/in/around my house!

Pics to follow



I am a Network Engineer by day, and everything else by night. I love to frequent the Gun range, Tune my BMW and disappear into the gym.


Married, two dogs, a cat and a little girl due in Nov.

Sneak preview of a BEFORE and current.. I have about 4,000 "in between pics to post as well"

lol


What makes me the most proud is that 90% of ALL the work has been done by myself and my father in law... We have hardly farmed out anything!

Default What the...

I got lost for 20 minutes...you said it was only 4000 pictures
Nice job, those gable ends are scary huh...heheh The trick is to toenail the bottom plate and overhang your bottom row of plywood, then it does not tend to scare you so bad when you get to the vertical-est part. It just basically stops...then you nail the braces. Well...next time, or the buddies house, whichever comes first.

And I'm sorry but the wife needs to not sit around (at least not get caught on camera)....she needs to at the least be handing out the cold drinks.

Great job, nice photo journal too. I'm sure many folks will learn something from it....and have questions.
