At some point, the previous owners of our house put a bathroom addition on the first floor. Judging by the decor of the bathroom (scary pepto bismal pink tub, sink, & toilet with black & grey plastic tiling), I would guess that the addition was put on in the 50s or 60s. The bathroom will eventually be ripped apart and redone, but that's a project for another day.
However, some time this summer, we plan to add on to the add on. We're going to put a second floor ontop of the downstairs addition. This way, we'll have two bathrooms upstairs. One for our kids and one for us. The Professor is in the preliminary planning stages - drawing up plans and figuring out material costs. This is what we've got so far. Here's the side of our house with the lower add on & the plans for the upper add on.
Here's a top down view of what we plan to do:And here are the estimated costs so far. These include the wood & roof. We already have subflooring. We still have to calculate the outer siding, insulation, & drywall.The Professor went to the county office and got all of the information on building permits and inspections. That should run about $100.
Oh. And there's the small matter of the actual bathroom part of this whole plan. One thing at a time.
So. Who wants to come help build stuff? Pop? Uncle Steve? Uncle Charlie? Uncle Bob? I cook big manly meals for volunteer construction workers!
