Another Little Update

Here’s a quick update on the house as of last weekend.  The electrical is done except for the actual power line from the road to the house, which has to be done by the electric company.  The insulation has been installed and sealed with plastic for energy efficiency on all exterior walls.  Drywall will begin being installed this week, which will start to give us a sense of the actual space in each room.

Most importantly, the metal roof was started!!  The roofer estimates 10 days to a week to complete due to the special cuts required with the front elevations.  He also told us that the roof has a lifetime warranty, but that we may have to replace the rubber washers on the screws after 25 years.  Ummm.. ok.  So basically, it’s maintenance free and may even outlast us living in the house.  We’re very pleased with how the brown color compliments the other house colors. And having seen it, we’re really glad we didn’t choose the copper color instead which would have overpowered the house!

 One other big thing outside is the painting of our front door in the fabulous Mata Hari color I discussed here.  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out and can’t wait to start decorating my porch for every holiday!

We’ll make a trip up again this weekend to check on the progress, so stay tuned for more pictures after that!
