After talking about it for about a year, Carolyn and I decided to go ahead with the garage/bonus room addition. We decided to go with a local builder named O’Jennings Home Builders and they started excavation on 17 April 2012. Unfortunately, it started raining seemingly every other day soon after that and construction was slow, but here we are almost in June and we have floor one (the garage) under cover and the roof trusses are due to arrive later this week.
Excavation just beginning. This after moving the gas tank about 30 feet and reconnecting, which strangely resulted in a ruptured gas line (nail hole) and four holes in the basement drywall to try to find the leak.
