thanks! You should do it. A cool treehouse sounds great.

You might dig it a little less, the subway tile is actually blue/gray. Since the ceiling is black, we wanted a little contrast.

Tested the parking on my new slab yesterday. This is roughly how the cars would fit under a 20X20 car port with a 4 foot gap between the house and carport. The plan is to order and aluminum carport and dress it up with stained 2x1's to match the deck.

Master closet upgrade weekend project. Original design the builder gave us didn't offer much organization and we hated stacking our folded clothes in the cubes because it pressed wrinkles into the clothes.

His side before:


Her side before:


Demo completed:


His side finished:


Her side finished:


We're about 95% finished. We need to replace the baseboard trim add some custom trim on the sides for a more built-in look. And install 1000 little plugs to cover all the remaining install holes.

You did those yourself? Very nice work. We have had them in our master bedroom his / her closets for 17+ years and just got them for our condo closet. I took the easy route and got them designed and installed for me. Can’t beat the organization and optimization of space. Helps avoid extra furniture.

Yep, assembled and installed ourselves. IKEA FTW!

We had IKEA Pax closets in our last house as well and we've missed them every day since we moved 2 years ago. Glad we finally made time to complete this project!

@Patrick303

I've got severe closet envy now. That'll be my next thing! Thanks for the inspiration

My wife drives the Tahoe. The wagon and Tahoe would stay outside under the cover. The garage only holds two so I would swap the 02, m3 and e9 around in there, which ever car is not in the garage would be at my dads shop.

115 Years old, 4,800 square feet, 4 stories. Nothing had been done to it in over 30 years as the previous owner was an old hot rodder whose wife passed away sometime in the early 90's.

You name it, this house either needed it or still does!

In the last 3 years:

Boiler
New electrical
new plumbing
new lathe/plaster walls (I'm now a self-proclaimed expert!)
Replaced many windows. Window total is 48 I think
New kitchen
New bathroom
Boat parking spot bladed in
Sucked my bank account dry
New deck
New Porch
New other porch
Fixed, cleaned, replaced, buffed, overhauled 1000 little things
North of 11,000 lbs hauled to the dump (by me).
Refinished upstairs and downstairs wooden floors after ripping out disgusting carpet.


Still needs:

Exterior paint
New chimney
Overhaul garage
New yard
New batch of motivation. I'm fresh out.

Holding up well? I have ikea kitchen cabinets and they’ve held up well. I’m about to do my closet with the same setup you have.

The last closet held up very well for the 1.5 years before we sold the house. And the best thing about Ikea is if something does break, it's cheap and easy to replace.

Going to be going on the Campbell soup diet shortly.

Detailed estimates just came in from the contractors to do the renos on the house at $400K.

Ouch...was thinking it would be closer to $250K. Setting up meetings with them again to see if there is fat to trim from their estimates.

You can just build a nice big brand new house here for that....

Starting to get an actual wood shop set up for myself... building some storage and then will do cabinets for the mitre saw and a workbench.

Got the air filtration all worked out to start!

Dude, that has to be a HUGE reno project.

Details? What all are you planning on doing?

Agreed with Hawkeye, you might be able to knock-down and rebuild on your current lot for less than $400K.
