Lucas and his crew have been making very good progress on the house. Each day I arrive after work it is exciting to see something new. By next week they plan to have the house and roof sheathed and our electrician will come in and wire over the weekend.
Meanwhile, the garage is still on hold and we are rethinking out plans of building the garage first and moving into the garage while the house is built. Now we are thinking that we will move into the basement while the house is built. Before we can move in, some pretty significant things have to happen.
- New septic
- Plumbing – at least on the 1st floor as the bathroom has to function
- Windows & doors
I am sure there are some other things but those are the big ones that come to mind. And we would like to move in by Aug 1!!! Here’s the guys who will make it all happen.
Lucas – he’s the boss!
Oso – Lucas’ dog. He’s 2nd in command.
Oso is one of the few on the crew that is taking advantage of the lake. Hot days lately!
Rob picking up at the end of the day.
Rob showing no fear of heights!
Scott, holding the post, is also a welder, irrigation, electical, etc. Pretty multi-talented.
Dale tore down the old lake house, has prepped the sites, back filled and is now doing some landscaping. Here he tries to explain why he munched another one of my perennials!
The new front yard is taking shape – can’t wait to see what Dale is able to do with it.
Dan the man. He had the fun job of sealing the garage foundation.
We are so pleased with the progress on the house. Each day brings something new and exciting. Today, it was the beginning of trusses on the house. The garage foundation has also taken a step forward.
6.9.16 Upstairs…what I call the kid’s (as in someday the grand kids) room facing Angie and Rick’s house.
Still need to pour slab on garage. About 3 wks behind schedule on garage which allows house to be ahead of schedule.
Love the staircase to the 2nd floor. And the window right above the 1st tread was an add on. Dan thought we should add one there and he was absolutely right!
