We’ve been cleaning up the yard around our 1920s bungalow, and had always planned to tear down the ramshackle garage/workshop (and *literally* half a bath) built by the former owner. We knew it was full of mold, so it didn’t surprise us when it turned out to be full of termites too.
Below is a view of the side of the back of the house. We added the door in what used to be the pantry (and was probably originally the back porch). That will now be the entrance to the mud room (off the kitchen) from the garage, which will be built where you’re standing. The rest of the ramshackle garage/workshop will be torn down, and then we’ll build a large bedroom addition in that space.
Greg loves tools and has been able to greatly expand his collection during our renovation. He is especially excited about his new tool to bust up the concrete slab under the former garage (and eventually the driveway too)… an electric jackhammer! (grunt like Tim Allen from Home Improvement.)
You’ll never guess what was *under* the concrete slab. No, not a dead body. Give up?
old bricks! (happy dance!)
