I wanted to enlarge the room which belongs to my older daughter.
The room will be enlarged into the garage.
First task was to setup the pillars, used planks 45mm x 70mm. My dog Huni is making sure things are done correctly.
I did not want the garage electricity in the new space. I wanted the electricity from her old room. So it's pretty nice to have a son which is an electrician. My son Hilmar Hólm Guðjónsson used a angle grinder to saw a path for the electric wires into the concrete wall. On the other side of the wall there was a light switch. From that switch, the new space will have it's electricity. A Lan plug will also be connected and that wire will be connected to the router which is in the garage.
This is how I wanted the electricity to be connected. The stepsyou see on these two images took a while to make. I used the stair calculator on this page to design them. The material I used was a 45mm * 240mm * 5400mm wooden plank.
Hilmar found a better way for the wires in the concrete, other than that, the connections where according to the plan.

Next I filled the cut with concrete. I am going to leave it un-patched for a while to let it completely dry.
