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!
