Making Progress

4 Dec

My husband and I went by the construction site of our new home a few days ago… oh wow- I was shocked at the progress. The last time I visited the site was the day after Thanksgiving, and there wasn’t a whole heck of a lot to look at. The house looked like a giant slab of cement (due to the 4 car garage) and there was just a bunch of pre-framed wood laying around. I figured progress would seem slow that week because of deer hunting season and the Thanksgiving holiday, but I wasn’t prepared for the fast changes I would see soon afterwards. The entire down stairs was framed so much so that I could discern which part of the house I was standing in. The fireplace, the dining room, the kitchen, the living room, the laundry room, the powder room, and the pantry are looking fantastic.The upstairs level and the garage are next in line for framing.

I need to get by the site again soon. My husband has seen it more recently than I have, and he said that the upstairs is almost finished. Our CSM (construction site manager) gives us an update every Friday on the past week’s work and future progression; he said that the next week will complete the framing phase, and then they’ll be moving on to roofing (shingles), exterior (siding & brick), and electrical…. on and on goes the list. Things are happening fast, freakishly fast. I’ll try to keep up with the photos and share as often as I can.
