I had this name since 1796.
 
Built a New House! (Progress Pictures)

A little background. I graduated college a few years ago and always wanted to fix up an old house ( http://www.genmay.com/showthread.php?p=24091373 ). This was one of the hardest endeavors I've taken on by myself and I will probably never do it again.

Beginning of the summer I started to build a new house. This house is exactly to my specifications and I have almost everything I wanted in it. Enjoy the pictures!


A nice wooded lot, approximately 1/3 acre in a nice sub division.


Here's another shot to show the proximity of the other houses.


The lot's begun to be cleared. I'm sad that they had to take down some nice trees


Basement is dug.

Footing have been poured. This ensures it gets past the frost.


Forms are in.


Walls are up, back of the house.

Studded interior walls are in, this is the living room with high vaulted ceilings


Master bedroom, the ceiling was also vaulted.


Egress window in the basement. This will allow for a bedroom to be built down there in the future.


Drywall.

Painted the interior walls before all of the trim and carpet was put in, this was a HUGE time saver.

Master Bedroom.


Bathroom.


Kitchen cabinets.

Finished pictures...

Living room


I put in HDMI and surround sound wiring in the living room... 47" LED LCD above the fireplace.


Hardwood floors in the kitchen, along with a nice little bar off the side of it.


Master bedroom.


I also put HDMI and surround sound wiring in the Master Bedroom. I currently have a Projector there.

Outside pictures, sorry for the bad shots. I still need to plant a lawn!



Well that about wraps it up. It was quite an interesting experience but well worth it! I look forward to everyone's feedback!

Im also interested to hear details. Looks fairly basic,so im guessing budget was limited.

Did you do the whole build yourself, or did you have contractors?

Just noticed... projector and surround sound... in the bedroom? That's an odd decision.

The upper level is 1400 sq ft, and the lower level is currently in progress and will add an additional 700-900 sq ft depending on some decisions that will be made shortly. So total sq ft will be 2100-2300 sq ft.

My budget was $250,000 and I came in way under at $180,000 (price includes everything such as the lot, driveway, etc etc). This will go up as I finish the lower level, but I estimate another $10,000 max since I'm doing most of this work myself.

I used a contractor but did some smaller things such as painting, and computer/surround sound wiring.

That fireplace just blows and looks totally out of place.

Otherwise nice crib.
