Well, we're off to the races. Today has been the fastest moving and "most to show for our efforts" day since excavation of the site. I found out we had a crew out at the build site most of yesterday clearing ice and snow off the first floor, clearing the driveway, and staging all the equipment for today.
We started the morning by digging all our panels out from under approximately 6 inches of snow and a solid 1-2 inches of ice from the ice storm of last weekend. Thank goodness they had covered everything up with heavy plastic sheeting when we first unloaded it from the semi's.
|Moving from the staging area to the house.|
|Happy to the point of being giddy with the first panel being placed.|
|Delivery of Roofing material, lumber for the interior walls, stairs, etc.|
|Taking shape. The weather was beautiful for this time of year, with temps in the low 30's and lots of sunshine.|
|We're going to love this view to the south. Kitchen is on the right and fireplace on the left.|
|Still have to build the wall separating the garage from the house.|
|Looking back from the Southwest. The kitchen window is in the center.|
|The front entry|
|One last look back up the hill from the south. When finished, the deck will wrap almost 180 degrees around this side.|
