Apparently I've lost track of the finished
pictures of the remodel, although I know they're here somewhere.
That's one of the advantages of OCD, you make ten copies
of everything. We gutted the house down to the studs in
about 80% of the house, then replaced everything. All of
the appliances, heaters, water heater, lighting, doors,
windows, insulation, roofing, flooring and decking were
replaced. In fact, all of the decks were burned and replaced.
The main deck in back was rebuilt to a larger 960 square
feet. The shop was converted back into a barn. The little
shop was thrown on the burn pile and replaced with an outdoor
kitchen. Even the floor plan of the house changed. We added
600 square feet of new areas, including a new kitchen. The
old kitchen was converted into a formal dining room. The
master bedroom, which used to be 132 square feet, was increased
to 424 square feet. The master bathroom was 40 square feet,
but was enlarged to 225 square feet. A new soaker tub, a
tiled shower, water closet with separate sink, and two main
area sinks were added. Throughout the house we installed
solid oak hardwood, porcelain, and travertine tile. Every
bit of labor we did ourselves, with the exception of installing
the new garage doors. When we were done we were so appalled
by all the luxury, we decided to move to Winlock.

No more 1970s yellow glass above the stairs in the living
room. The crown moulding hasn't been installed in this
picture, but you can see it here.

This is the original addition to the master bedroom, now
with it's own private deck.

I made part of the deck 8 feet off the ground, and the
rest 4 feet. The upper part has a ground-level deck beneath
The outdoor kitchen, complete with a sink, countertop,
refrigerator and BBQ.
