When we moved into our little brick ranch 5 years ago, we knew that we had several phases we would have to go through before we could get our home looking and feeling the way we wanted it to.
Phase One: Renovate the Interior of our Home
Phase Two: Build a Two Story Addition
Phase Three: Add a Front Porch
Phase Four: Build a Two Car Garage
Phase Five: Renovate the Guest House
So now it is time to begin Phase Four, and then we only have Phase Five left, the guest house.
This past couple of weeks, we have begun planning out and marking where we want to build our two car garage..
When you are facing our house, the garage will be on the left. We will have to move my white shed out of the way eventually.
The car will be attached to the house with a covered walkway something like this…
The walkway probably won’t have railing, but it will have a tin roof.
And then the garage will look similar to this…
It will have a gabled roof to match the roofline on the addition on the other side of the house. And it will be rapped in the same white siding as the addition. It will also have a bonus room on top of the garage, but we are going to leave it unfinished for now. We will have to wait until we have a little more money before we can finish that space. :)
The walkway will lead into a new laundry room that I am sooooo excited about! My current laundry room is super small and is the room where you see the small window in the picture below. We will be turning that small area into a butler’s pantry, creating an opening where the window is now, and the new laundry room will be located where you see the gravel below.
It doesn’t look like a very large space, but it will feel super roomy compared to the small laundry room I have now. :)
I will be sharing all of the progress on this project throughout the coming weeks. We are hoping to have this completed by the end of October. We are having help with the foundation, but Cy will be doing most of the building by himself. It’s going to be fun watching it all come together. YAY!
Have a blessed day, friends!!
