House Tear-Down And Rebuild


We're completely tearing-down our house and rebuilding it. We've been working with an architect and a contractor to design and plan our dream house. We just started demolition and are budgeting one year.Our old beach house was built in the 1920s, and I bought it in 2000. It had asbestos, lead paint, ancient electrical wiring, some rotting plumbing and an awkward layout ... the works! :) Yet it's been my ... then *our* piece of heaven by the beach.We're looking to turn it into more of a family home with 3 levels and a top-deck, with ocean view starting at the 3rd level.Ground level will be a 2 to 3 car garage and storage area, a half bath, and an outdoor shower for rinsing off sand on the side of the house.Second level will be 3 bedrooms and 2 baths.Third level will be Kitchen, dining, living room.... and the top deck for entertaining.A dumbwaiter will go from the ground level, and serve each level up to the top deck.
