Just wanted to update you on our remodel. We're leaving the two slump block walls, and all new wood construction for the rest of the build.

This was a 1978 built home, with a flat roof and swamp cooler for cooling. Remodel is trussing the roof with vaulted ceilings. attached 2 car garage, and a detached 1 bedroom guest house (Casita)

Saw the thread title... didn't know if this was going to be a car, bike, or real estate remodel.

You are a multi-faceted man

Dale, I'm leaving this one to a builder. The design, and demo was as far as I am taking it.

Yeah.....*remodel* is an understatement. When the only thing left standing is two walls, that is a full rebuild, not a remodel!!!

Looking forward to updates and tracking the process!!

"Remodel" is an understatement. I just finished jack hammering up my 60 year old deteriorating driveway. Have a dumpster for recycling in my front yard. I told my son I was being a "destruction worker". LOL.

We upgraded from swamp coolers to refrigerated air about ten years ago. Aside from the $8k, it was an awesome decision.

N Edit: Jeebus. CK used virtually the exact same words I did about the remodel. That's funny.

Before anything gets built, we had a gathering of friends and smudged the property. An Native American ritual to clear negative energy.

Sewer lines are in. Back fill today, and prepare for concrete.

Very nice. I have my old concrete driveway out. I'm thinking of "wimping" out (LOL) and paying someone to pour the new one...

Lines not deep where you live.
