December 13th, 2013

It’s been a boring 3 weeks since my last update. The house feels like it’s been going at a snails pace – during this time, most of the work has been done on the outside.

The Project House Construction – Week 12

November 22nd, 2013

I cannot believe it’s been a whole month since I updated last! So much has happened in the last 4 weeks. It’s been hard to update because a lot has been internal work – electric, HVAC, etc. And so all the pictures (or lack there of) are just more framed walls.

The subs got in and out really fast and got everything buttoned up and ready for the 4-way inspection and then drywall.


All of our laundry dryer vents were these recessed boxes that will keep the vent hose from taking up any extra depth in the room.


While all of that was happening, the windows got delivered! Yay!
