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 were told they would be done with the basement and the subfloor of the main level, and that they would be working on Saturday as well. We stopped by again on Sunday and they had the exterior walls of the first floor completed.
Here’s the current view from the front door (sans interior walls, of course). The kitchen will be on the left, the breakfast nook in that corner, and the living room on the right.
One of my favorite parts of this house: the huge windows in the living room looking out into the woods!
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.
The back of the house: my big windows again, and the garage on the left.
One more story to go!
There 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!
