Hi All. Welcome to my "Project House".
This is going to be my daily (sometimes semi-daily….sometimes weekly) blog of my “House front Facelift”. This build involves me taking a 1970’s Viceroy cottage and making it much more modern. When I bought this cottage it was an un-insulated shell….no driveway, no phone, two electrical circuits, bad plumbing and paneling from shag to popcorn.
Over the last few years I have done the most of the electrical/mechanical/inside cosmetic work, some of which you've likely seen in the magazines.....but short of replacing the three (yes three) sliding glass doors on the front with new a new door and window, adding a driveway and some plants, the outside of the house is pretty much as it was…..time to change that.
This blog will eventually cover just about every facet of what a homeowner can do to the exterior of your home….from the standard stuff like deck building and landscaping to roof framing, post and beam, stonework and exterior coverings…plus a bunch more.
Several components of the build are being put into articles for a few different magazines, so some pictures/processes may be missing….but hopefully you’ll get the gist by what I post here.
Comments and questions are welcome .
OK, lets get started……..
