Construction update: Silver Spring Addition

The Addition to this Ranch style home has been under construction for almost two months. Demolition of the existing sunroom, exterior concrete stair was completed in about a week. This included saw cutting of the existing carport concrete slab for the new mudroom foundations and removing the existing kitchen cabinets. Framing of the Additions proceeded for the next two weeks and required covering the roof with a tarp to prevent leaks into the existing portions of the house. The taller dining room ceiling and large window openings already feels really spacious adjacent to the existing kitchen. Over the last few weeks the new asphalt roof shingles were installed to replace the old shingles & underlayment, which leaked in several places. As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, orders for many construction items are experiencing delays due to short-staffed factories so the window order was one of the first that was placed on this project. Framing of the new deck is now underway as the wait continues for the new windows.
