Re: A Personal Project That Went From A Drawing To A Home


That's fine.... I just thought I was seeing it funny or something. I'm just not used to seeing it half way up the wall.

I LOVE the door BTW. With all of that detail, I'm guessing you built that from scratch?

Anxious to see the finished pics....

That home is perfect! What a great job.

Attached are the construction drawings if anyone wants to build them themselves... (note: they were built using "true" 2x6's)
