The fast part of house building
Status; going up fast! has a foundation and some framing
Next; More framing
Days; under 2 weeks from the first speck of dirt moved
This is actually old news already, on Tuesday the kids and I went by the house and were super excited to see first a delivery of wood;
And a very necessary tempory site improvement….
The HOUSE (not garage) now has all the vertical parts.
Wider view, you can see what will be windows and also the rocks are our future driveway (I think it will get more paved)
This was supposed to go up yesterday but we made the decision to get the house back on the market ASAP so I spent the day really getting vacation put away and knocking off tasks on the pre-sale list. When the kids got home we had a batch of boxes for storage so we decided to swing by the house again and they had made so much progress in JUST ONE DAY! I suppose having an on site potty means productive workers.
Driving up we have a view before we even get there (note to self, we do not have a private back yard…) and you can’t miss the work done in just one day.
There are wall like things around the main house, the garage is framed.
Our future windows are giant, using a child for scale.
Up there is the start of the second story and if you look closely you can see my last minute piano window addition. We had a meeting Tuesday morning to talk windows and future details and I asked if we could have it and in under 24 hours it exists!
This last one is a view of the future office. I had one where Lars was pretending to sit at a desk but without a desk it just looked…. um… wrong. So imagine a wall about where that angled wood support is, Lars gets his own door and window.
Thats the tour so far, pretty cool to go every day and see progress. I know soon the big steps will be hard to see and/or take pictures of so until then we are living it up.
Hope you all don’t mind joining the process. Other things are actually happening, maybe I’ll end up writing more? On the other hand, my real computer is failing to start so I’m working outside of my native habitat. We have a hope a friend can resuscitate it this weekend, or at worst salvage my hard drive, so cross fingers with me. I’ve got enough change going on, I can’t have this too.
