  • Biggest build of my life

    Hey guys,

    I've been working a lot lately, but not around my pc. I just wanted to share with you my on-going project this year:





    My father and I are building me a house in my childhood neighborhood. We've been preparing this for 1 year, now the construction has begun and will be going for the next 4 months. Normally, July 1st my girlfriend and I are in!

      Thank you my friend, so far so good. It's not easy, but it will be worth the time invested! About 30% less than buying

            After a lot of weekend hours, the evolution is looking great:







            Still no time to think about a new build to start... Damn, I can't wait to finish it and have my free time back.

                    Oh yeah, there's a lot of light in the basement (2 more windows in the back), we like it a lot :



                    Here's inside, on the 1st floor, starting with the front door:





                    180 degrees turn, looking at the dining room/kitchen:



                    From the kitchen, looking at the bathroom/laundry room:



                    Then the staircase and the living room:





                    At the 2nd floor, we have 3 bedrooms, a walk-in closet and a bathroom.

                          Thank you sir!

                          Going through the finishing stages: Drywalls, exterior siding, etc.







                          4'x12' drywall sheets are a pain in the a** to set, especially the ceiling's ones. Fortunately, some family members and friends came to help:





                          180x 4'x12' sheets for the entire house. 50lbs of drywall screws. Whew, that was a huge Easter weekend.

                            The build is coming along very nicely! looking great! I would give anything to buy/build my own house again. Maybe someday lol.
                            And what self respecting gamer wouldn't run Cat6 throughout a house they were building haha I would have run at least 2 lines of Cat6 to most of the rooms in case you wanna change the room around then you can plug in on the other side no problem

                            Looks awesome buddy, looking forward to the finished home and the house warming party

                              Thank you Dave! It's a lot of work, I can tell ya. But it's really satisfying

                              The exterior siding is 100% done, we will install the front stairs, concrete sidewalk from the stairs to the driveway and the railings at the end of the project. Pretty simple/grey-ish house, but we like it a lot:









                              Paint is started, next is the floorings. Less than 2 months to go!
