House to small second floor

In 01 I redid my office on the 1st floor, 10×8, it was practice. Then in 03 I redid my 1st floor 5×8 bath, complete gut and redo. Put in new water heater, lots of new plumbing, electrical, etc. Preliminary work, practice. Then in 06 came the big one. Adding a whole new second floor. (House is 24×26 feet)
So my house now has exactly twice the square footoage that I started with . . . which now includs the new 12×8 full bath upstairs, a 14×8 closet (with washer and dryer inside) and a 15×25 master bedroom with 10 1/2 foot ceilings in the 2nd floor. Full rebuild up and down, inside and outside.
As with all construction, when you are living in the house and doing the work by “sections” you move things from this side to that side and from this floor to that floor and you get the scratches and dents. So this week I “redid’ some items on the second floor to cap the project. The main one was to put that final last coat of gloss polyurethane on the floor. The master suite . . .

One of those major jobs with a theme. “Had I known what I was getting myself into . . .” But now that it is done, it feels good to walk into and around the house. And my wife loves the closet . . .
