I did 100% of all the work on this myself - brick and concrete. Took me almost 2 years to complete working every weekend and evening I could. Not counting the garage as living space (even though I live there) this added an additional 624ft of living space to 3408 sq ft.

Just after digging the footer

2nd floor walls

Brickwork

Master bath



Master bedroom (I'd show the walk in, but I' don't want the girls on this forum to get jelly)



Garage

Notice - no pole in the center. This was the main part of my design.


So - my song and dance for the house...it was on the market for 140K - I got it for 118K (had a really good agent that helped us). I did this entire addition for $26K - house was appraised in 2002 at $188K. Seemed to be worth all the work I did
Oh hell yes. This is awesome!

This is basically what I've done while home with the kids.
