We’ve been busy working on the back side of the future homestead’s manufactured home. By the time we’re done with this It may as well be requalified as a site built home. At any rate, last weekend we removed the back window of the living room and replaced it with a sliding glass door. While we had the window removed, we took the wall out and replaced the baseplate and subfloor in that area.
Although we’ve been getting amazing deals on building supplies, we decided to pay full price for the sliding door and get exactly what we wanted. At this point, the back door is the most expensive single item we’ve purchased for the homestead. Having said that, It is a huge asset to the home. It really opens up the living space and allows us to see the back property well.
This weekend, I (along with the help of some awesome family and friends) replaced the kitchen window and replaced about 30% of the siding on the back side of the house. We finished it up about an hour before it really started raining good. Here are some photos of the progress.
