    Just thought I'd share some photos of what I been up to for the last year since moving in here.
    My goal is to stop sleeping on the couch within a year LOL.
    Breezeway basically had a roof, the two existing walls (one house, one garage) and the front and back walls which has plywood & cedar look siding on outside.
    I added insulation, and steel studded an office, master bedroom master bedroom closet, & a kinda walk through room. I will be adding another door to house in the alk through room which will lead to a bathroom I will build.

    Heres some in progress shots.

    Aye, its not cheap. Drywall would have beeen prolly 1/3 the cost. But 3x the headache, taping, spackling, sanding, priming & painting.
    I have done enough drywall junk, that I never want to touch it again. I pay $1.55 per square foot for 8" T&G;, comes in random lengths.
    Theres a place in Michigan I think sells it only and delivers. Might cost more to have it delivered then purchase locally. I went to some local family owned lumber yards and ended up getting it from one of them. Plus I try to support local businesses as much as possible. The box stores were no cheaper, except for the quality, and the stuff I got was milled right on site. No need to pick through and search for good pcs. Every pc was perfect. And nicely banded together in 20sf packs. Took 2 trips last round in my Ford Ranger. 30 packs first trip, 31 second LOL. Worked, wasn't too bad as the pine is light in weight.

    Well it does look good, the quote I got ( board foot) was from a lumber yard near the KY boarder for 6" white pine TG. Did you seal the back side ¿

    I did not seal that back side, never heard of that. everything will be seal coated in a matte or light gloss on the interior surface.
    The exterior walls have craft faced insulation, R19. should be fine. Plus, if ya seal both sides, the wood cant breath. thats my opinion anyways.

    Thanks Harley & Griz. It is a big project for me, considering work is insane, and time is so not there lately.
    Its basically weekend time, sharing fixing busted crap in the main house & cutting the grass around the house & big field out front. I am wooped.
    Upstairs water line to the toilet let loose while I was on the road the other night. So thats 1st priority this weekend. Time for more pex & fittings for a hopefully quick repair. When a iget some more done, I'll try and take some better pics. These just came out like crap.

    Hogz, some where I came across that it was better to seal both sides to prevent warping if used on an outside wall.
    I can see both sides of the fence on this one.

    Yippie, got another wall done. Small, but I didn't have much time. Fixed the plumbing leak & mowed the grass & field. Long day.
