Diy Gc, my biggest project

Recommended Posts

Ive been waiting 3 years to start and we finally got a shovel in the ground last month.  Im getting a 2 story great room and a trophy room. It only cost me a kitchen lol. Ive never built one on my own but so far so good.

Water proofing is done, foundation is backfilled , basement slab was poured and framing is set to start on Wednesday. Best of all is my food plot in the background is planted

Looking good T. Doesnt surprise me that the wife is running shop, lol. She's probably out on the quad surveying the site each morning before your first cup of coffee. 

 

Im sure those beams(along with everything else) is going to look great!

Framing always go quick and at this point of the project you feel like you are about to move in. Then the plumbing, electrical and finishing bring the entire project  to a slow, painful crawl. :shock:

Looks good!

Good luck Tom - can't wait to see the finished product...   Whatever you planned for the trophy room I hope you doubled it!

The part of the project I was really looking forward to was installing the  barn beams we salvaged from an old Pennsylvania barn.
