2 Months In

20130805-114243.jpg

Here we are 2 months into this and we have (I think) a lot to show for it.  We’ve learned that building on a small lot is so much more complicated than building on a larger one.  Everything, especially the grading, involves baby steps.  Grading took a lot longer than anticipated and being on a raised foundation added time as well.  But the framing has gone pretty steadily quick considering our contractor Kevin is working with only his partner, John.  I feel like we made huge strides this past week, with the 2nd floor joists going in and closing the house in a bit.  It gave us way more of a perspective on how the house will feel and the amount of light, etc.  I think the house will be all framed up in the next two weeks!

    Went over last night after we locked up our house and we walked the rooms inside. There is such a nice feel to it just the way I envisioned it. That kitchen window is going to be so wonderful!!

      I can’t believe you have a house to “lock up”!! This means the end is near! I can almost smell the home cooked meals.
