The devil is in the details
|Before the addition|
Look closely and you will see a different colour door in the "after" shot and white corner boards. In fact, the front of our cottage which is located in central Canada has been pushed out almost 5 feet, though it would be tough to see this from a casual observer standpoint. Indeed, this was my summer project and my biggest summer project in 10 years.
Honestly, it was a little more involved than I thought and it took a lot of thinking and a little figuring to get it right each step of the way.
First, it took a lot longer than we though it would take because we had to wait for construction material, particularly the roof trusses and the flooring which had to be ordered well in advance.

The flooring came in from Montreal and while it was not 3 1/2 inches wide (it was 3 inches) like the original flooring it was the same thickness and it complemented the original flooring better than we thought. Of course the old floor was a little "stressed" after having been down for 50 years but it was in otherwise great shape.
All-in-all we are very pleased with the results and it made for a very worthwhile summer project.
