    Thanks for the photos. I work in one small desert oil town where many of the houses have no foundations, just wood footers right to the ground. Not even any concrete piers. The plywood with cement or stucco over it is a favored cosmetic technique.

    It looks like a good floor plan if the deck were still there. Is it too costly to (re)extend the deck across just the back of the house? From the pictures it seems that French doors in the dining area off the kitchen are in the right place, aesthetically and functionally, if the deck were still there. IMO, decks/patios are supposed to be easily accessible from the dining/kitchen area in order to easily extend the eating/entertaining area to outdoors.

    Looking forward to see how this comes turns out. Looks like a good house.

    Hi Kristine –

    That’s really interesting that the plywood is a common “trick”…I had no idea!

    As for the french door, removing it is going to allow us to extend the kitchen a bit, and I think for this one, getting a bigger kitchen is going to be more worthwhile than the french doors. On the other side of the kitchen, there is a sliding glass door out to the deck, so the access is still there. If we didn’t need to extend the kitchen, your idea would certainly be the best one.

  3. Just the outside frame of the house is beautiful. I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with the place!
