Time lapse of our house addition/remodel. Each column (usually) corresponds to the same camera angle.
|The "before" pictures|
|Monday, September 29 - Garage demolition begun|
|Tuesday, September 30 - More demolition - finger covering the sun in shot 6|
|Wednesday, October 1 - Cleanup and started breaking concrete|
|Thursday, October 2 - OMG a hole!|
|Friday, October 3 - Hole gets bigger|
There is now a big pile of dirt (BPOD) on our driveway blocking my normal photo locations. So the pictures will be from a different angle for a while. Be sure to click on the last two photos today. I took them from atop the BPOD to get a good view of the whole hole.
|Tuesday, October 7 - When it gets scary: House on stilts (more clickable photos)|
|Wednesday, October 8 - Started filling bottom of hole with gravel as drainage for the basement|
|Thursday, October 9 - Digging out the sewer line|
|Friday, October 10 - More digging under the house|
Love the inadvertant rose in pic #5. In shot 6 you can see where they have been digging out from under the house.
|Tuesday, October 14 - Framing basement slab|
Getting ready to pour concrete for the basement. Yay! The black bucket connected to the white piping is, we think, the ejector pump for the basement bathroom. The concrete will be poured around it and it will end up in the closet under the stairs.
Check out the nice Tinker Toy Ferris Wheel that Gavin constructed by himself (following a picture) in the front bay window.
|Wednesday, October 15 - Forming|
Only one photo today since I was late and the workers had already started. They are forming the basement now and are scheduled to start pouring concrete on the 16th.
|Thursday, October 16 - Started pouring basement|
|Monday, October 20 - Forming the walls before pouring|
|Tuesday, October 21 - More wall forming|
I'm guessing they'll finish forming Thursday and pour either Thursday or Friday.
|Wednesday, October 22 - More forming|
Inspection on Thursday and pour on Friday.
|Thursday, October 23 - Almost done forming|
Inspection is actually Friday. Pouring is Friday as well.
|Friday, October 24 - Waiting|
Inspection passed, but not fully complete. It is scheduled for Wednesday. Unfortunately they can't pour the concrete for the walls until it is done. So we lost about a week from this whole ordeal. There will probably be no updates until pouring is done on Wednesday.
|Wednesday, October 29 - Poured walls!|
|Thursday, October 30 - Getting ready to frame|
The walls dried over night - I was surprised that they could take down the forms so soon. Looks like they're getting ready to start framing.
|Monday, November 3 - We have framing!|
And still a swimming pool...
|Tuesday, November 4 - More framing|
|Wednesday, November 5 - And more framing|
Light wells still to be formed and poured.
|Thursday, November 6 - Living room floor in place|
The last shot shows that framing is being done in the basement as well.
|Friday, November 7 - Basement work (see last shot)|
And a bit of fog.
|Monday, November 10 - Family room framing|
Finally angles 2 and 3 show something interesting.
|Tuesday, November 11 - More framing|
Short day due to the holiday.
|Wednesday, November 12 - Finished framing|
Still need to do the ceiling joists and roof. Not to mention the garage. There is a big hold-up with the light wells to satisfy the city. Hopefully it doesn't delay things too much.
|Thursday, November 13 - Plywood walls going up|
|Friday, November 14 - Roof joists and some interior work|
The door from our house to the former garage - the one that used to open to the Pit Of Death - now opens to a pleasantly rough framed family room. We can see the different rooms, closet, and hole where the stairs will be. Some electrical work has been done in the basement, but due to lack of stairs and ladder I didn't get down there.
|Tuesday, November 18 - Roof|
Missed yesterday. The roof beams are in place. I'm excited I can resume the "out the door" camera angle :)
|Wednesday, November 19 - More roof|
Sounds like the stairs will go in soon. I'll be including more interior updates once that happens. Especially since there won't be much change on the outside until the lightwells get approved and work on the garage can begin. They might even get the windows in soon, which would be good timing since rain is predicted for all of next week.
|Thursday, November 20 - Interior shots|
All interior shots as the outside hasn't changed. Stairs are in. There isn't much else they can do now that they're held up by the city. For that reason there may not be many updates for a week or two.
Angle 1: From laundry room looking towards door to kitchen.
Angle 2: At top of stairs just outside kitchen, looking into family room.
Angle 3: Down the stairs.
Angle 4: At bottom of stairs looking towards opposite corner.
Angle 5: In basement looking towards bathroom, closet, and under the stairs.
Angle 6: Back corner of family room looking towards opposite corner (opposite of angle 2, basically).
Angle 7: Same as angle 6, just rotated right 45-degrees towards family room closet.

|Monday, January 19 - Started digging for garage slab|
|Wednesday, January 21 - Formed outer wall of garage|
