Hi again guys,
While I was on vacation I drew out my plans for my house in Willis, TX that I'm remodeling slowly but surely. I bought this place when I was 18 (now 21) and it is quite an experience!
This house was built by this guy out of used building materials so it's not perfect looking but it's solid as a rock. It survived the 90mph winds Willis got during Hurricane Ike without a scratch.
Here are the plans:
The downstairs windows that are boarded up were just solid panes of tempered glass (the guy who built the house told me he got them from old sliding patio doors) Unfortunately some vandal smashed one of them so we boarded both up for the mean while. Now that wall is fully closed in with the two new single hung windows I bought installed
There aren't many big changes except for the front facade of the first floor
I'm replacing both exterior doors (already did the second floor one) and adding a 3rd one off the Utility Room, adding in some new windows downstairs and replacing all the siding on the first floor as well as adding a front porch and (hopefully) expanding the lower deck to a more usable size. Unfortunately it's a tight squeeze, I can't go out to the side anymore because it's already practically at the lot line.
