No actual construction experience but I've done a little bit of everything over the last 25 years. I read and study things a lot, plus I've just been one of those people that can do whatever I put my mind to. I guess I'm just an all around handy guy. I know my limitations though and that's why I hired out the concrete, framing, insulation, and drywall.

Let's see, I waterproofed the foundation, ran the foundation drains, framed the basement and sheeted the floor of the main level, framed the stairs, roofed it, installed and flashed the windows, sided it, caulked everything, painted it, wired the entire thing and installed the sub panel, plumbed it, insulated the basement, and installed the sheet metal ductwork for the addition. Oh, and I dug some holes too so yeah

Left for me to do:

Install laundry cabinets
Install granite tile counter tops
Install heated ceramic tile floors
Install Madrone hardwoods and finish
Install all interior doors
Finish wiring all fixtures
Finish plumbing
All trim work and built in book shelves

Landscaping

The concrete guys set up forms, poured and stripped the forms in 3 1/2 days. Over 40 cubic yards in that foundation.

No problem, you'll have all of that done by the end of the week. Looking good Tim.

A 3 year old running a plate compactor? Sounds safe....



We have a floor!



And the stairway.

I've seen and helped with lots of additions...but I have never seen or heard of an addition like this (going underground). It looks good

So many people said that when it was at that stage, I almost did it.

Starting the framing.





The weight of the house is back on the foundation. Finished the shear wall.



Starting to frame the basement. My future RC fab room is there in the back of the basement.

Time to deck. 1 1/8" T&G plywood, I want the floor to be SOLID!



Don't forget the rain drains.



Had to figure out where the foundation drains were going to drain to since they at 9 feet down. Decided to make this sump well and bury it before I back filled.





Looks like the framing lumber is here. Framing tomorrow!

I'm not critiquing or anything like that, I'm just not understanding the reason for the partial pour and leaving these voids, then a 2nd pour to bring everything up to grade?

The overall project looks great! Great forward thinking to give yourself a personal area while providing for the family. I hope it all goes well for you.

Can you send me some cut off scraps? I've been away from the area for so long, I've forgotten what the red cedar smells like!

You pour the footings and wall first. Code on footings for an 8 foot wall is 12" thick and 5' wide. They have to strip all the forms to pour the slab so they come back and do that later. The slab is 4" thick with a vapor barrier to keep moisture from migrating up from the ground. I actually filled in the center section with 3/4minus and plate compacted it before the slab was poured.

Thanks! I have lots of cedar scraps from all the exterior trim.

And I was proud that I broke out the tape measure and level to hang a picture for my wife. Nice work.

5' ?? It makes sense now. I'll send you a PM for a box of cedar shavings.

Living on the east cast for so long, basements are just assumed to be a part of the building process. It's much less complicated to have a hole 10' below grade on this side of the continent.

What are you putting on that floor? A machine shop?

Massively thick plywood and such a tight spacing on the joists has gotta support a massive amount of weight.

I think my parents house has 3/4" osb on floor joists spaced 24" apart....it's been a lot of years though since they built it, I may be mistaken.

His addition will outperform the entire original structure. I agree that the slab thickness on the addition would support a freight train. ( no pun intended)
I was surprised to see a glu-lam beam, when I saw the pocket in the wall I assumed a nice piece of steel was going to be set into the hole.

When I built my addition a few years back, I used 1 1/8" tongue and grove plywood for my main floor which is what that looks like to me. My joists were 24" OC. The inspector thought I was building a bomb shelter and I never had any write ups.

I could never use OSB. The thing with OSB is that "if" it ever gets wet, it swell up. When it dries, it stays swollen. With plywood, if it gets wet, it may swell some, but when it dries back out it will go back to its original form, or close to it.

I love the job you are doing. I think it look awesome so far! Great job!
