We are always asked how much will my home cost? But before we can really answer that we need to find out some things. 1 is will you be doing "sweat equity" ? You might ask what does sweat equity look like....there are many ways to get involved in your project. Some want to do as much as possible and others may say I think we can paint.
Last weekend we made a trip to the Wenatchee, WA area ( actually in a small town called Magala) to help a couple that are doing sweat equity on their home in the finishing touches and so here are some before and after photos of a project we helped them with.
Mark & Kari had already found this place were they bought 2 very nice fir slabs with "live edges" that means that it is the actual outside of the tree bark and all .
Here is the before of the bar. Don't you just love the old corrugated metal they used on the face of the bar? on the right side floor under the trap are the bar tops.
They had a number of things they had to figure out as to how it was going to go on. Some of which they had prep work to do which is what you see in the next 2 photos .
Nice location to work out on the deck over looking the fields of fruit.
Mark ( the home owner in dark shirt ) is cutting off a bit of the over hand so they can get the pots and pans on the stove top . And Cliff ( green shirt) is cutting in a space where the 2 slabs will intersect at the corner.
Here are the attached slabs they still need to be sanded and finish put on them which Mark is going to do.
Any questions or comments we would love to hear from you !
