Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)

Happy Valentine’s Day

The grading was completed on the expansion portion of the house yesterday so I went by to view what will soon be covered in concrete.  Not quite sure… but I think we have a problem, still have some diggin to do.  The plans call for an 8′ finished ceiling in the basement, however I’m 6′ and I’m able to reach the top of the floor on the main level of the existing house.  I know this can’t be correct as we’ll need to account for the joist, foundation, sub-floor, etc… Also the carport is smaller than what we discussed.  I sent an email to our GC just to alert him to what I’ve discovered. 

On another note, while Julie has enjoyed deciding on finishes, colors, etc… I’m starting to scare myself.  I’m now a subscriber to Better Homes & Garden‘s website and bought a copy of the latest Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and Renovation Style.  Thankfully we were left with a lot of wood that needs to be split – think that I need to go and split some in the near future for a reality check.

Pics of the grading process, you can see that Max had a blast and felt very much at home:
