Our house is now 61% complete according to our bank.
We are closing in on the final stretch of hopefully finishing by June.
Dry wall installation is almost complete. The crew was busy on Saturday installing.
The garage door has been installed – though I’m afraid it will get scratched with all the construction going on around it.
The front door (Fir) and side door (fiber glass) has been delivered & installed. We ended up getting these from Frank’s Lumber Door in Shoreline.
We love to support local business as much as possible. Nels at Frank’s is very helpful, look him up if you are ever in need of a door. They also make custom doors.
Siding has been started, the south side of the house has been completed. Siding is where the communication with the builder went side ways. I wanted more panels all around for a more modern look, but our builder already laid out the Hardi planks all around and had the rendering approved by the local Architectural Committee.
In order avoid more delays, we are going ahead with this original rendering with lots of hardi plank siding vs. panels. #communicationFAIL
As with the framing, we are concerned about siding in the rain, especially since the Pineapple Express of wet weather is supposed to hit us this week. omg.
