Two big milestones this week; Sheetrock and the start of Landscaping.
Besides getting a good feel for how the house will be when finished, sheetrock is also the point where the schedule is supposed to stabilize so we should be fairly delay free between now and move-in this February.
Landscaping is one of the most important elements for us so we’re excited to see it begin to take shape.
Storage shed at Manomin Resawn Timber where the mantel for our outdoor fireplace is coming from.
The first of four sheetrock deliveries.
José (Topo LLC) preparing for a wall on the north side of our house. We’d planned for this wall to be stacked stone but it needs to be more structural so will have to be Keystone.
Finish trim happening in the foreground. In the background the sheetrock folks just discovered that the sheets will not fit through the dormer windows so they’ll have to take it in through a window in the 2nd level hall and carry it upstairs to the loft.
A couple of folks from Topo repairing one of their bobcats. Mike & Bob discussing step design. Bob is an amazing and valuable guy. He deals with a plethora of issues and always finds a solution.
Finishing a joint. This joint was OK.
This joint was quite poor so they’ll be redoing it. We’ve obviously some concerns with the folks doing the exterior finish carpentry. This was one of several such issues.
Sheetrock crew beginning to rock our Kitchen.
When you want to make sure you can hear the best in Latino music.
Sean (Jerco) bracing a truss so that the other side can be notched for a light can to be installed.
Installing v-groove on our porch ceiling.
Kitchen, informal dining and family room mostly rocked.
It’s kind of cool to walk through the short door from the hallway in to our master sitting room and then have it open up in to this loft space. You really get a feel for it now that the rock is going up.
