Building a new "old" bungalow all by ourselves
- Created: Oct 18, 2009 by lohayden
My husband and I just recently finished building our dream home. We did the entire project ourselves- starting with the demolition of our former tiny and dilapidated house.
My husband became the general contractor, we milled most of our lumber, salvaged old slate and put our own roof on, tiled our bathrooms, put in hardwoods, built our own cabinets- actually, my husband did pretty much everything except for the plumbing and electrical.
I am so proud of him and all his hardwork. It's been a crazy, stressful year but SO rewarding and so wonderful working together.
We have a blog which shows our progress along the way.
