First Week of November, a Summary

Sorry for the delay on updates… I’ve gotten a bit lazy! Worthy of note: The metal roof (love), the windows, more siding.   Certain sections of siding are on hold waiting for the exterior doors.   We had the sandblaster in to create the floor texture.   There’s actually a lot to see here.  HVAC […]

What are the footers FOR?

Footers, in place

That’s right. Now we even have concrete in the footers. Very exciting. Hopefully this week includes concrete block, and maybe even some gravel in the foundation.
