Things Are Picking Up

Finally, the roof was finished last week after a week of rain delays. Inside, a lot has been going on. My builder Nam, who also does all the plumbing and electrical has been busy installing wiring for electrical, cable, and speakers. He also installed all the plumbing. Not much has changed on the outside except the addition of shingles.

This week the plan is to finish some framing details, install all the windows, rough-in the HVAC, finish some electrical changes and order brick with insulation and drywall to follow shortly thereafter. I'm very excited for drywall and the next phase, which I hope is less stressful than this stage has been. Here are a couple of pictures that show the finished roof.

I'm looking forward to sharing some of my interior choices with you. I've been working on picking things out for months and I'm excited that we're so close to start getting some things installed!!

Making Progress Slowly

Right now it's Thursday, August 15. There are a few framing issues that need to be corrected. My builder who does the electrical has been busy putting in outlet boxes and running wires for the cable and electrical. The central vacuum guy roughed in yesterday and he'll be back later after painting to finish. The roofer was supposed to come yesterday to put on shingles, but it rained yesterday and today so I guess he'll come back next week. I'm posting a picture of the house as it is today and the photo of my new craft room (before the bathroom was framed). On the schedule for next week are putting in windows, finally getting shingles, finishing framing issues and plumbing rough-ins.

Framing is Almost Complete

Framing has been a long process. Lots of issues with getting workers and supplies to the site at the same time. Some mistakes were made that need to be corrected, but we are just about in the dry. I'm adding some photos from the last few weeks. The bottom ones are the newest ones.
