Okay folks, things are getting REAL over here. After moving so slowly for the past 4 or so weeks, this past week has been kind of nuts. I’ve only seen Mr. Project a handful of hours, and I’m frantically shopping for final hardware, light fixtures, etc. Every hour seems like only a handful of minutes as we go full speed ahead on our last 4-6 weeks of the build.
I am now updating weekly as there will be tons to document each week. So here is the week 15 update. I’ll list all the links for the past updates at the end of this post if you want to see our progress over the last 4 months.
At the end of week 15, drywallers were feverishly finishing mudding the walls and texturing the ceilings. The siding guys were getting pretty fast but still had a few unfinished areas.
I mentioned the pine soffits in the open gables, and I was able to get a close-up shot this week:
These are all tongue and groove pine planks. They will be stained dark and weather sealed. This is one of my favorite features on the exterior. I just love how unique (for our area), and how much character and richness it will bring the front porch and the rear deck.
