Josh's House build

Post by Cowboy80CJ5 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 10:35 pm

Well........as most of you know, I have been working on a new house and shop for the past year. I am getting close to getting everything tied up, so I thought that I would show you a few pics of the progress.

Here is the front porch going up. I am starting with the pics from here, as the rest of it is pretty slow.

A couple of my friends helping cut out my doors
Image

A little bit of siding on the house
Image

House and the new shop
Image

Putting the metal roof on the shop. The metal was 24' long!
Image

Some insulation looking down the hallway
Image

Here is the living room after the drywall was put up. The drywall is the only thing in the house that I contracted out. Man.......am I ever glad that I did that! :lol:
Image

My beautiful daughter enjoying her new room. Her and her brother share a room right now, so she is looking forward to getting in the new house!
Image

This is me working on the cabinets. I decided that it would be MUCH cheaper if I just built my own cabinets, and it turns out that I was right. I saved a fortune by doing this myself!
Image

This is where we added to the island.
Image

This is my wifes tub in the master bath. It is currently painted, and the whole bathroom is actually finished.
Image

Here is the deck on the back of the house.
Image
Image

Here is my shower in the master bath
Image

Hardwood floor in living room
Image

Looking down the hallway
Image

Here are a few pics of the cabinets painted with most of the doors on. I am SO proud at how these cabinets turned out. This was the first time that I had ever done this kind of work. Not bad for a first try if I do say so!!! :lol:

These pics do NO justice on this place and Josh's work. I got a tour the other day and it is amazing. The cabinets and island are quality work....but would anyone expect anything less from the Cowboy?!

GREAT WORK JOSH! lmk when you gonna insulate the shop and Ill do my best to get there and help. :bigthumb:

Looks awesome Josh. That's gotta be a hell of a sense of accomplishment to ACTUALLY build your own house. 8)

Thanks for all of the kind comments guys. It is very nice to finally be able to see the finish line with all of this.

Kevin....yes, I am very proud of everything that I have done with the house. It has been absolutely exhausting, but I am sure that it will be worth it in the long run.

I have learned A LOT while doing this. I have been around this type of work my whole life, but I have never done anything on this scale before. During this time, I have found that some things are much harder then what I had previously thought, but mostly, I have found that some things that I had over-complicated and let intimidate me for years were actually MUCH easier then I had thought. Prior to this project, I would have never attempted to build my cabinets, but there is really not much to them. If you have a little attention to detail, then they are a project that most anyone can do with the right tools. Another thing that I was always intimidated over was electrical wiring. I could wire a vehicle front to rear, but I had never had anything to do with house electric. Now.....I really dont have anything in a house that I cant wire up and make work. I understand how it works now, and once I figured it out, the wiring was easy.

I have learned one thing more then anything else though............I hope that this is the LAST house that I ever build! I dont mind the work, but the every day 12-14 hour days gets a little old after a year straight of them! :lol: I still have alot of building left to do, but most of that will be working on the shop! There are two good things about working on the shop. #1........I am working on my SHOP! :lol: #2......I get to go inside and stay in my new house when I am done for the day instead of driving back to my other house.

Josh, did you build the cabinets and buy the doors?

Everything looks great.

Hope you have someone in the family that own"s a furniture store to fill that monster up.
