Nearly there…

It’s been a turbulent last six weeks and Christmas was a pretty sad time but life marches on and, despite our situation, the house construction progressed.  Inside, electrical and plumbing was finished, boards hung followed by mud and tape and painting started.  Outside soffit and siding was completed along with some work on well connection and perimeter drains.  We also saw the cedar siding on the tall sections nearly finished which helped to blend the house into the landscape a little.  The main things left to do, other than landscaping, include door installation, painting, trim and sills, install kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities then finish electrical and plumbing.  We’re nearly there.

Locked up…

I’m a bit late with this update but we’re well past lock-up now, with insulation and boarding on the sched for the next couple weeks.  It has been really fun to see the windows and doors go in; the plumbing and electrical complete except for finishing; siding basically finished and trim well underway.  The front of the great room and the kitchen garden have yet to be sided but that will be done soon.  Tom, Ron and Chelsea have done amazing work and Craig and Al have kept everything moving forward; they’ve all been a great team.  So far, I think everything is on track for our move-in early next year.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!

Onward and upward!

We’re now ready to start framing the house.  Over the last couple weeks, we’ve finished filling the shell of the house; backfilled around a portion of the foundation; seen the plumbing rough-in; set the insulation under some mesh and poured the final slab of polished concrete.  We also had our septic guy, Mark, finish the system and I asked him to put in a curtain drain as well.  It’s been a busy few weeks but now that the foundation and floor is done, we should see the framing go up in short order.  Our contractor, Craig, has guided the process admirably thus far, very smoothly.  I’m still enjoying puttering around helping out with a variety of jobs.
