Default Still alive - just tackling a HUGE DIY

Building my own house! My own two hands, plus a handful of hours of friend labor paid in beer. I've been toying with the notion of doing a 'build' thread but it's not really a beer related topic, unless you consider that it's really just a big container for the Keezer v2.0!!

I wish I had the know-how to do something like this! I plan to have a home built sometime in the next 5ish years and would love to be able to do it myself.

Good luck and post pictures!

HE'S ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck on the new home build, that's awesome. I built/contracted my house 7 years ago and it was a hell of a lot of fun. I didn't do everything myself, but a lot of it.....with the help of friends and family of course. Keep us posted on your progress and I'll anxiously be awaiting keezer vol. 2 when the time comes.

I design and build houses for a living and I still want to see pictures. I always like to see how other people do things.

Ok, so I'll start it out like I did the keezer build - with a sketchup file!

Front:


Back:


The design is one that I came up with, and that Red and I have been tweaking for the last few years. When our house finally, after three years, sold last January, we found ourselves in the position to actually build it!

We found a great piece of land in the town we wanted, and away we went. We broke ground 3 days after we closed on the property. I have many photos that I will post of the build from then to now, and as the project moves forward.

Ultimately, there will be a new keezer in the basement, which was designed to specifically be a man cave - bar, pool table, home theater - you get the idea!

Looks good, easy roof to do, only thing I would do is maybe add about 10 more feet to the lanai. Thinking someday you might want to frame that in and make in into a extra room.
