Oh c'mon!?!?

I'm trying to build a house here.  Can we end winter already.  Yes, this is from today.

Electric Walkthrough

Today we met to do the electrical walkthrough.  We picked out all the light and switch locations and like every other day since we started, added more cost to the house.  There was lots of activity today.  Roofers were shingling, concrete guys were stoning, and bankers were approving (the bank makes sure their construction loan funds are being applied properly)

We should be getting concrete this Thursday.

Where's my roof??

We drove up to the house today expecting to see some shingles on the roof.  Unfortunately they were still sitting in a big pile.  Looks like the framing crew took the day off??

Why can't it be this simple

Note to self, don't build a fence at the new house... it won't do any good.

Little bit of plywood

It looks like about half the roof is covered in plywood.  I'm hoping they get that big pile of shingles on before the thunderstorms roll in.

Looks like the crane was busy today.

This will be the bonus room above the garage.

This is the vaulted ceiling in the great room.

Big pile of roof

We were told they would have a crane on site Tuesday, but there's not much evidence of that.

Wednesday they appeared to get a start on things.

Mom and dad came out to visit and were able to see the house with most of the walls in place.  It was just floor joists 3 days ago.  The framers didn't waste any time.

This will be the master suite.

This is the four season room.  I'm going to see if they can add another daylight window in the basement. We didn't realize how high off the ground the house would be.

Another shot of the four season room.  Afton approves of the view.

The basement is huge.

Inside the four season room.

Sticks and stones.
