It’s been a while without a construction update so I’ll just give you the run down on the latest……..
We now have a “shop”. I like to call it our barn just because it sounds more fun, but really, it is just a glorified garage.
That part went up FAST! They are now working on the road back to the shop. (I never knew how much went into doing a road correctly! I mean isn’t it just dirt??? Guess not, it's SPECIAL dirt!)
On the house they started electrical, plumbing and heating/air conditioning. It is CRAZY all that goes under that nice pretty white drywall! I can’t imagine having all the knowledge to build an entire house on your own……everything is so complicated and each person has their specialty.
All that stuff isn’t very pretty though so that’s why I haven’t posted much on the house!
The unpainted hardy plank siding is coming right along…..I would think in a week the entire house will be sided!
(East side of the house – the garage)
I have been debating what paint color to use. I’m going neutral so I don’t think I can go “wrong”…… (well, at least I’m telling myself that - HA!) I have to choose the body of the house, the board and batten and the fascia/trim….. that dark brown would be the trim…..(for those wondering if I was considering painting my entire house blackish brown)
I have had my AHHHHHH moments where I really did do something wrong…..I’ll be sure and write a post on that soon enough…..maybe it will have to be a Fess Up Friday post……it was pretty bad.
Sneak Peak….. does that look like Techno glass or what? Believe me when I tell you it looked awful on my “Tuscan” front entry……it all worked out in the end but I did have a sudden panic rush when I saw it installed!
OK well that’s it! I forgot to take pictures of the back patio…..that'll have to be on the next house installment. We did PAVERS (they look like bricks) and I am SO excited about them!!!! I may have missed my opportunity to take outdoor pictures as this week it SNOWED!!! (I'm actually not super excited about that.....my kids are though and that seems to be all that matters sometimes!)
I still have my lawn chairs out just hoping for one more nice sunny day! (Either that or I was just lazy and didn't put them away yet.....that couldn't be the reason)
Till Next Time!
