Well, WE finally made it!
My wife and I are proud to announce, we're offical "lakefront" home owners :)
We recently purchased a home in the "BareFoot Capital of the World"!
And now for us, the FUN really begins!

No, NOT barefoot'n 24/7 as I would like; but DEMOLITION baby .... that's what I'm talk'n about :uglyhamme

So, as the work on our "new" home progresses both done by myself
and a few of the construction companies hired out-
I'll galdly post for thoses that are interested, before and after photo's of our dream house allowing you to share our experience in the remolding world. Give 'me that sledge and jackhammer, I'm ready to go to work :firejump:

I'll post a set of pic's after lunch, and continue adding more as taken.
Hope you'll take time to view 'em, when your able :banana:

Not to keep anyone in suspense any longer, here we go :firejump:

As most of you know by now, my wife and I are proud offical "lakefront" home owners.
We recently purchased a home in the "BareFoot Capital of the World"!
And now for us, the FUN really begins!

REMODLING baby .... that's what I'm talk'n about!
So, here's a few pictures to get you hooked as the work on our "new" home begins :firejump:
Hope you like, final results ... when ALL is said and done

We bought "As Is".

Bad part - needs some work.
Good part - On Lake.

I'll attempt a colouge of shorts for easiler viewing.
I'm presently arranging more in order, there's over 300.

If all the rafters are cut the same, then the ridge board should be level.
