As you can see, we’ve made some progress since the last time I posted. To us it seems things drag along, never going as fast as we’d like. We had hoped to be done by now, but that is not even close to happening! Shooting for early Spring now.
Next on our agenda is
to finish up the shower pans
get the roof vents in (today)
get electric and plumbing inspected (hopefully this week)
work on drywall
get septic installed (next week)
get water run to the house (next week)
start tiling bathrooms and floors
about a million other things!
Thanks for checking in to see our progress. I’ll try to update more often as there will be more of the “finishes” going in.
Lots of progress since the last update! The house is totally under roof now and some of the windows have been installed. The past couple of weeks were a blur because we were under deadline to get the in-floor heating installed each night after parts of the concrete floors were poured in the basement. We had three consecutive nights where we worked until after Midnight to complete the job. But we made it, and the basement floor is complete.
Our crew was also scheduled to complete their job for our builder (Hearthstone), but they agreed to stay and help us finish up some of the harder items on our list, like installing the windows and the timberframe roof on the porch. We had some hiccups getting the lift here and work slowed a bit, but we caught up. The porch is built, the roof is on, windows got installed and back-filling has started.
Our crew has to go to Virginia for a job, but then they’ll be back to finish up the windows and redo our tower roof. The original trusses were wrong, so they will be replaced to make the tower as tall as it should be!
We got a much-needed break this past weekend during our 24th annual Pig Roast held in Corry, PA to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. Just look at the wonderful group that was there!
We’ll now put our attention to the shingle installation, final siding choices, porch construction, interior walls, electric installation to the house and a million other things! Thanks for checking in!
