Back in Sept, we started the process of doing an addition along with a little kitchen work and some essential electrical upgrades. After a bit of a delay from the architect (a long delay actually), we’re finally up and running.

Global pandemic? Furlough? Depression looming? Sounds like perfect timing

Anyway away we go, the old porch & patio are gone (as is most of grass ) and the foundation walls are up. If the weather agrees, the rest of the concrete work goes Mon & Tues. Framing MIGHT even start by Thurs.

Best of luck @Anesthetist!  I know things are tough right now but I hope things go smoothly for you!  Things like this can be challenging but are typically well worth it in the end, it's just hard to be patient at times.

Delay from an Architect? Get outta here!
Nice looking project and perfect timing to work on something like this @Anesthetist.
Could even be a nice family project.

Sorry for the infrequent updates! Things have really been moving along and exterior finishing is about half way complete. Concrete board is up as are the fascia & soffits. Next will be the battens and replacing the door trim, gutters, and painting. We’ve chose a color scheme that a lot of Eichler and other MCM architects went with including a local architect, Ralph Fournier

I saw the photos and thought that the top one was your house for a second @Anesthetist! ;D

Looking forward to seeing what the extension is like when it's done. I like the design, and the fact that it's not slavishly following the original house.

Is there any reason you didn't glaze the whole of the rear wall?

Thanks Graeme! Haha, the first house actually isnt far from me (suburb though, not the city), was an equal price to the house we currently have, AND in a better school system. I was almost packing my bags but...my wife is anchored in to our current home. We do have great neighbors and she has this thing about not living in a house without a basement So we talked about it and decided to bring a little detail of it back to the city.

Shame about that, it looks a cool house, though yours looks good.

I'm sure that when we get around to shopping for a house, I'll be looking for something eccentric (like this), but I'll be overruled by my other half.
