Posted July 08, 2018 08:25:00 How to Ditch Your “Fantastic” Home project article I’m not one to talk about DIY projects, but the new project that I recently started was the construction of a new house.
It was so fun to have the ability to create something completely new.
So, after my friend and I completed a project of this nature, I wanted to share with you my process of designing my new home.
Here’s my story.
My first idea was to start with something that was already in my basement, but I knew it wouldn’t be an easy task.
I was planning to use the same materials that my family had built in our home for the new house (I had the materials to do so).
I already had a few pieces laying around, so I didn’t really have to decide where to start.
I knew that I wanted a space that would have room to house two kids, and I wanted my kids to have a safe place to play.
When I looked at the list of projects I had on hand, I decided to build a two-story home.
The plan was to build the home in a garage that was a total of five stories high.
To keep things simple, I also decided to use a lot of recycled materials.
One of the first things I did was to choose the material that I would use for the exterior of the house.
The exterior of my garage was already finished.
The garage walls had been painted and caulked.
Once I had the exterior finished, I picked out the materials for the walls.
First up was a metal frame for the house’s entrance and a door frame.
This frame was designed to be strong enough to withstand a home invasion, and the door frame would serve as the entrance door.
After all of the materials were chosen, I went to the hardware store and picked up a set of hinges for the door.
I wanted the hinges to hold the door closed, and they would make the home look as sturdy as it would be.
Then, I made the front doors, and then the roof.
For the roof, I chose two pieces of galvanized steel.
Next up, I grabbed a pair of doors for the main entrance.
These doors would be used to secure the house from the elements, so they would need to be big enough for a toddler and her friends.
They also had to be sturdy enough to handle a home attack.
Finally, I selected a pair or three of windows for the front entrance.
They would serve to block the sun and protect the kids from the sun’s rays.
All of these doors and windows needed to be secured to the frame of the home, so it needed to look as strong as it could.
Now, for the most part, the materials that I had in my garage were going to be used for the project.
In the first phase, I bought some new steel sheeting.
It’s just something that you put on your walls and roof to help with the construction process.
Since the house had to have plenty of windows to block out the sun, I figured that I could use some sheeting from the garage.
That way, the house could still look sturdy and as big as it was originally.
But, I wasn’t sure if the sheeting would last through the entire project.
So, I had to go to the local Home Depot and buy more sheets to put on the walls and ceilings of the garage, and also some to put up the roof and windows.
Before I knew what I was going to do, I was ready to begin.
On my second day of work, I pulled up to the garage to begin the project, and there it was.
At first, I thought I was just going to use some leftover material from the previous project to make the garage walls.
But, after I looked around the garage a bit, I realized that the materials had been used in the previous house, so now I had an idea of what was needed for this new project.
