Okay. Well Lufelia asked me the other day to take pictures of the so called home improvement that is taking place over here in Garfield. The idea behind this improvement is to add-on is so everyone who lives with us (my grandmother, mom, dad, bother, sisterâ€¦ me?) has their own room and a shit load more space.
In the basement as far as I know it will have my room, bathroom, computer and weight room, and a living area. Iâ€™m not sure about the specifics of it all, but so far the frame is complete on the add-on, but the existing part of the house is what baffles me.
On the first floor the there will be a huge kitchen, well looks huge to me, and it is supposed to have an island. I know Lufeliaâ€™s mom dreams of having an island, so in your face! Just kidding. The first floor will also have my brotherâ€™s room, my grandmotherâ€™s room, a bathroom of course, washer & dyer area, and a dinning room. It will also have another huge living area with cathedral ceilings. Let me tell you the ceiling is damn high.
On the second floor will be my parentâ€™s room and my sisterâ€™s room. However, Iâ€™m still lost as to what will happen with the existing area of the house. I donâ€™t have the blue prints in front of me to stare at and tell you every detail.
All I can tell you is the house is ripped apart from the basement to the first floor. Itâ€™s a big mess and it shows no sign of going away anytime soon because the stupid fuck we paid to complete the add-on hasnâ€™t showed up for the past week. The word has it that he will be here tomorrow to finish the roof so we can run the electrical work and Ethernet components. Highly unlikely that he will finish it anytime soon. But this fuck also ordered wood for the job and had it dropped off today knowing very well that we had the wood already. My parentâ€™s are rather pissed off about this since its more money that we have to fork out.
I know they paid him 20,000$ already in advance from which he did the foundation and all the framing. He will get another 50,000$ when the house is inspected and passes. New Jersey law—Never pay anyone until it passes inspection.
Anyhow, the moment you have all been waiting forâ€¦ pictures of the house and HAMSTERS!
The outside of the house with no windows! How will we ever see? Also, to your left you will see the add-on my parent’s are doing. Enjoy

Front view of the new add-on, my brother’s room and the computer room/office can be seen

Better shot from the inside of my room, isn’t it small?
The basement ripped part, just think this use to be my parent’s room back in the day… also you can see my dad sitting down and one of his ‘old’ friends standing there.
Right when you walk inside the front of the house and look up at the skylight.
It’s mom cleaning up after all the workers left!
The house of smoke and fire? More like the house of plastic, am I right?
More plastic in the kitchen area? Wow!
Mmmmm what’s this food?
Time to drink….
You again?! I bite, don’t you know that?
