Day 172ish

A lot has been happening at the house since the last post. Elec, plumbing and HVAC got roughed in. Sheet rock is done. I'll start spraying the inside walls today if I get out of work on time.
My dad I put most of the tile backer board up Sunday. The wood stove is installed and ready for a fire, but it's covered in plastic to prevent overspray. When the walls are painted we'll fire it up.
The septic lines are in. Just no tank yet. Hopefully this week. Power will be connected to the house by 12/2!

Day 152 - Outside

So here are the pictures as promised.  I wanted to wait until the weekend was over so all the work could be seen.  The rocks are not there yet, but will be soon!  The front door is in!  The west wall of the house is DONE!  The south side of the house is in the works!  The roof is closer! The chimney/wood stove will be installed this week!!  And so on and so on!

This was the end of day 152

So now that you know what the exterior plans are you can start thinking and wondering what the inside is going to be like!  Sheet Rock will go up next week and then paint and trim!  Still a lot to do, check back again soon!

Day 150 - siding, front door, etc.

So yesterday was day 150 since breaking ground! On that 150th day we got one exterior wall (the biggest one) completely completed. Siding, trim, paint, everything! Today (Sunday) we will break down the scaffolding and set up on the front of the house and continue. We also finally installed the front door. It looks amazing! I will post pictures of everything at the end of the work weekend.
