I am adding a new room to my house. It has been in the making for quite some time. I have actually been on the verge of adding it several times, but I was always able to talk myself out of it.
Now I've got the perfect reason to go ahead. Since I enlarged my bedroom by combining 2 bedrooms, there are now only 2 bedrooms in my house. My DGD is old enough now that she spends several weeks with us each summer. (Last summer her sister came also). She is also here off and on for other weekends during the school year. Adding this room will give me 3 bedrooms again.
So here is the plan
It is 12x20. The bedroom is 12x15, the entry is 5x7 and the half bath is 5x5. The reason I'm going with the entry being larger is because I need to be able to get large appliances out of the house at some point. And I don't want another full bath. I know that is flying in the face of current thought, but I have been here 40 years and I'm planning to stay.
We still have to figure out the door swing in the entry and the bath.
This is a look at how it will be in relation to the house
The work has started. The porch and the brick has been removed. That was really stressful!
The foundation is being laid with a brick face, but the top will be vinyl.
