House Progress: Insulation and sheet rock 8/27/2008

Zach is sleeping better now that the insulation is in and the sheet rock has been completed throughout the house. Now insulation will need to be blown in on top of the sheet rock to finish insulating the house. The sheet rock passed inspection today and the contracter has started taping and doing whatever else they need to do.

We are going to start picking out the interior finish products like doorknobs, interior doors, stair rail, etc. tomorrow. The curb, gutter, sidewalk and handicap ramp have been installed and we should get asphalt soon to patch across the road and to connect the existing road to the curb and gutter.

I am not sure what order everything goes in now but things are still moving quickly.

House Progress: 4-way inspection and curb gutter and sidewalk 8/20/2008

I haven't posted anything for a few days but it isn't because progress wasn't being made on the house. We just passed the 6 week mark which was on the 18th and the plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning have been roughed in and the doors and windows have been installed. The deck has been built and the sidewalk is in and the curb and gutter will be completed tomorrow. The fireplace was installed today and they will begin insulating the house tomorrow. I am excited to see what the next six weeks will bring.

House Progress: Plumbing 8/9/2008

The rough plumbing has been completed on our house and all the subs are getting in and out quickly. The HVAC company has started cutting holes in the floor and they should be back next week to get the ducts ran and install the furnace.
Zach has a lot of fun seeing the progress on our house and he isn't afraid to pick up a broom and help clean up at the end of the day.

House Progress: road crossing and a few shingles

A few days have gone by since the last post and we have made more progress with the house although the progress is a little less visible. The 400 east road crossing is complete thanks to John and Lindon. The waterline trench is ready to have the waterline ran to the house and the plumbing has been started. I will post more updates tomorrow.
