How is he going to tie into the existing roof and siding. Will it match?
Yes it will be existing slope but since it's a little larger than existing roof the peak will be a little higher. There's a good chance we'll get the entire house sided, it's concrete block house. The exterior walls are parged. We want to put some insulation on the exterior with vinyl siding. It's more to get the insulation on it than the siding.
There will be no question about what he's building, I already drafted it. Note that some of the stuff like the storage area he won't be building. The bedroom with the red walls is existing garage right now and will be turned into a master bedroom but we're doing all that work ourselves. I even have the drainage and heating pipes for the boiler planned out.
We'd build it ourselves but time is important here and it would take all summer if not longer.. needs to get done now so we can start setting up the boiler.
