True Colors - Part 1

The exterior is 90% complete. Some rock work, trim, deck and porches remain on the outside. The sheet rock, tape and texture on the interior is complete. All the ceilings have been painted. They are painting all the rooms now. I will have pictures of those next time. We now have a garage door and the inside of the garage is sheet rocked, taped, textured and painted, looks real nice.

Taking Shape - Part 6

The wet and cold weather has slowed the progress for a while. We've had better weather lately so the guys have been doing outside as well as inside work. The furnace and all the duct work is in. The pads are poured for the air conditioner, propane tank and the rear deck stairs. Most of the siding is up and they are putting the stone up in the front. The electrical and plumbing have been approved by the county so the insulation is in all the walls (even interior), floors and ceiling. All the walls and ceiling are sheet rocked. They need to get heat in the house before they can tape and texture.

There has been a ton of work done on the interior. It's really coming together.

The great room and the screen porch are things we haven't had in previous homes. We are excited about having them in this one. We can have the whole family over now and have plenty of room to stretch out.
