There wasn’t much progress this week, so today’s update will be rather brief. The wood roof has been covered with a protective paper material to keep the rain out of the house until the metal roofing, which has been ordered, is installed – hopefully this week.
For now, all the windows and doors are open to let the interior wood dry out after the week-long rain we had. The electrical should be done by mid-week and then insulation and drywall will begin. We met with the builder on-site Thursday, and went over a few details. He confirmed the siding where the nook window size was changed will be replaced by the framers, as it was their error. He also confirmed they will add a header over the entry to the studio, which will give us a place to hang sliding tracks for doors later (watch for a post in the coming weeks about my plans for the office!).
The interior gas lines have been plumbed, but Enstar still has to run the line into the property from the street. I’m not sure when this will happen, but it looks like they’ve already been on site doing some preparations.
While the crew was waiting on the sub-contractors they began installing the siding on the front of the house , which makes it seem so much more solid.
They also built the front porch, which will eventually have partial stone columns on either side where the posts currently are. I can’t wait to decorate this space for holidays! And I plan to add a pretty little rocking chair to that corner to enjoy the view!
It’s not grand, but it’s our own little slice of the mountain, and I love it!
So that’s it for this week’s update. Like I said, not much. Hopefully this week will be more productive so I can share another milestone or two before the hubs and I head off to the lower 48 for a short trip. 🙂
