Homestead Build Update 1/14/2023

Homestead Build Update from Shane:

Homestead Update: Sometimes you have to slow down to speed up. I spent the day yesterday cleaning up, reorganizing and removing both the old, extremely heavy wood burning stove from the living room and all of the old HVAC ducting from underneath the house. Both were pretty big chores. Today, I was able to reframe the dividing wall for the laundry room, 1/2 bath and new walk in shower. This wall is a non load bearing wall that I framed directly on to the floor joists. NOT the traditional way to do this, but I needed to leave the subflooring out in order to run water lines and configure all the new drains. There just isn’t enough clearance to comfortably crawl under this entire area, and this wall is needed for the plumbing vents. So, non traditional it was. When you’re making a very old house do something it wasn’t originally designed and built to do, you HAVE to think outside of the box sometimes. It is what it is, and that’s exactly what makes this fun for me! This stubborn little house WILL conform one way or another…
