It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like… A House!

I’m happy to report that the lumber that was delivered on Monday began to resemble a house on Friday!

We weren’t sure if the framing crew would be out the day after Christmas, but they were! When we went by the lot on Friday, there were three guys working on framing in the basement.

We stopped by again on Sunday and they had the exterior walls of the first floor completed.

The kitchen will be on the left, the breakfast nook in that corner, and the living room on the right./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d41/68776894/files/2014/12/img_5147.jpg

One of my favorite parts of this house: the huge windows in the living room looking out into the woods!/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d41/68776894/files/2014/12/img_5149.jpg

Here’s a view of the basement through a window. The stairs haven’t been installed yet, but they will be placed where the daylight is coming through to the left in this photo. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d41/68776894/files/2014/12/img_5151.jpg

The back of the house: my big windows again, and the garage on the left. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d41/68776894/files/2014/12/img_5152.jpg

One more story to go!

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d41/68776894/files/2014/12/img_5154.jpgThere are still a few working days left before the new year — could we have a roof by then? Maybe some windows? We’ll see very soon!

  1. So happy for you two! I think it’s very possible you will have the roof in place by 2015. Rough framing can go really fast. 🙂 What completion date did AE give you Maria?

    • They gave us a guaranteed occupancy date of May 9. Our mechanical start got pushed back to mid-January, but our project manager said that won’t affect the GO date.
