We make it a habit of taking all three kids up to the house on Fridays after school. We were thrilled to pull up today and see all of this...
The house is just about completely *dried in* with all the sheeting in place. It is very clear now what the entire exterior of the house is going to look like.
There was a last minute addition, suggested by our contractor.
We added a shed dormer to the space above the garage. Originally this space was not going to have enough headroom to be usable, so we hadn't thought much of it other than storage. Our contractor had the foresight to drop the ceiling in the garage by a foot, which in turn allows enough headroom in the bonus space above. By adding the dormer now rather than later, we saved thousands of dollars. We won't be finishing out the space now, but all it will need is a little sheetrock and flooring to complete the room at a later date.
This is the view of the house now from our little clearing in the woods.
The great room window wall is taking more shape as well. You can see the second row of windows framed out, with the third row in progress.
The roof rafters are now in place over the master bedroom as well.
Things are definitely coming along nicely!
