Now that we've gotten just about all of the demo out of the way, next up is our addition. The addition was planned to run along the backside of the master bedroom, bathroom and former utility room/back door. We planned to use it as a large master closet, an office, and a washroom/pantry/utility room with a covered porch on the end that leads out to the back yard.
We needed to get the addition done before anything else because we planned on moving the water heater out into the new utility room and therefore we can't run plumbing until that is in.
Here you can see them prepping the back of the mobile home to start building the addition. They built it on the same level as the rest of the home.
The dimensions of the addition are 24/12 interior space and a 10x12 covered porch to the back yard. This extra space is badly needed. The home before didn't have a true pantry, I just used a couple of cabinets for food storage.
We intended on using shingles for the roof but the pitch wasn't great enough for shingles so we went with metal instead. Eventually it would be nice to replace the whole roof with new metal.
We're so excited to get the extra space! We'll be building interior walls and customizing the pantry with a washer/dryer platform, a platform for the water heater, and shelving. I also can't wait to do some customization in the closet as well. We'll be re-tasking some of the good windows from the main house to the addition as long as they aren't leaking. The next step is to frame the walls on the inside of the addition, and continue frame and subfloor repairs in the rest of the house. This mobile home remodel is starting to come along!
