    The double G at work and it was impressive to watch them pour footings and the stem wall.

    Lumber time. Studs for the floors and mud wall material.




    Also the under floor plumbing and heating system are going in.
    We are using a new poly style pipe for the plumbing, it flexes if it freezes and they say its cheaper material to use.

    This is when the site manager tells me they forgot to add foundation for the Bay window we are having installed, its a week delay to get the foundation people out, and concrete poured so the floor and walls are delayed till next week. Its ok though because in the great time line this wont effect finish date.



    Thats all the updates till next week.

    At least you got a picture of that lumber before the neighbors started "acquiring" it at night.

    I like the progress of the concrete form pourer.

    couple observations from out here.
    shallow pit. must not have a real issue with a deep frost line there.
    lots of pads under the foundation. out here, they would have poured 2 more footings the entire run of the house and framed a small pony wall underneath.

    too late now, but putting the house up on a 12" rim would have been $500 well spent down the road when you need to crawl under it. not to mention much happier mechanical subs. and we all know that happy subs do better work

    it is interesting that from looking at the pics, you don't have to use engineered beams for all the floor joists. looks like the majority of them are 2x8/2x10?

    when they shoot the subfloor, make sure they use construction adhesive across the entire floor joist assembly before osb and use either screws or ringnails. best way to prevent squeaks.

    watch the size of the house grow/shrink as you complete various phases of it. looks tiny when the foundations are poured. subfloor makes it look much bigger, then you get walls up it'll look small again until drywall goes up.


    houses in the background of the lumber shots on the ground, do they have the same color front gables?
