Taking Shape - Part 5

It's been a couple of weeks since our last visit to the site. Luckily they got the house water tight - roof on and walls up before the rain started. Most of the siding is in place now, they need to paint it when the weather is good. After the outside is painted the stone work will be done. The front porch, back deck and screen room have been framed and will be completed with a decking material called "Batu". It looks and feels alot like mahogany. The rough electrical and plumbing are in. We're waiting for inspections before completing that and moving forward. The windows and exterior doors are in. The crew is now of Christmas holiday. Merry Christmas everyone!

Taking Shape - Part 4

We haven't been out to the property for a few weeks. The holiday season is keeping us busy. The builders have been busy as well. All the windows are in. The front porch and rear deck have been framed. The siding is going up. We can hardly wait for it to be finished.
