It has been a while since my last post. We've been busy. Between working our regular jobs, and simply trying to function at home, it's been a bit of a struggle. BUT...
For those who are interested, we did an insulated concrete form for our foundation. It is put together like legos, and then filled with concrete and rebar. It took about a week to complete (thank you Pine Haven Contracting).
Ryan is itching to get into working on the house. We have all the supplies we need for framing. We've got some of our indoor finishes all ready do go. All we need now are more hours in the day.
We hired out some of the more finicky tasks such as fixing up our 150 year old entrance (after pics are one their way).
Our front entry should be done within a week or two. Thanks to Steven Dall Designs for taking over this job. He's also replacing some rotted wood around the bay window- a project I haven't been able to convince "anyone" to do in years (*ahem* Ryan *ahem*). I'm very thankful :P
It probably sounds like we're on track and at ease with things. Don't be so sure.
I'm guessing by mid October it'll be cold enough (at least at night) that we'll want heat. What's the date today?.. August 26th? So that's about 7 weeks.. We can't turn the heat on until it's installed, and we can't install it in rooms that don't yet exist. I mentioned this, and being the planner I am, I broke the work down week by week, listing the bare minimum of what needs to be accomplished in order to meet our goals. Here it is :
After some review, here are the remaining list items we have to squeeze in:
Ryan says it's achievable. We'll see. :P
