A quick update on the status of the house. Last week, framing continued and is nearing completion. It’s slowly starting to feel more and more like a house. You can now clearly see the spaces inside. This week should hopefully include the installation of the exterior weatherproofing and windows and doors (keep fingers crossed). At the same time, some of the other subs should be coming in and roughing in their associated elements, including plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. For many of the subcontractors involved, this is their first experience dealing with SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels). As a result, there will be a slight learning curve involved, but I expect the installation to go fairly smoothly. As each trade does their installation, I will provide photos and a brief discussion on associated concepts and work involved.
As we can begin to realize the interior spaces, we are running through some interior details, including railings and stairs. Stayed tuned for an update on those pieces as well.
I will post some more pictures of the progress tonight and keep you updated on when the weatherproofing, windows, and doors go in and provide some associated details with each installation.
