So you want the good news or the not so good news?
Let’s start with the not so good…as the title suggests, the carpenters are still hard at work erecting the remaining house frame. When Nick met our site manager J last week, he was optimistic that they would complete the frame stage by the end of this week. I was confident Metricon would get us over the line as a week seems to be the norm for the frame stage based on other builds I have followed. Unfortunately they fell a tad short due to a delivery issue with the frame company. J’s wife had a baby so he had the week off. We have asked him to tee up a time for a site walk through when he returns to work next week.
And now for the good news…
I haven’t had a chance to drive by the block since last Saturday when only the first floor frame was up. So when we drove by yesterday and saw the progress you should have heard me squeal in excitement!
Oh em gee, our house is enormous and I’m so in love with its outlook from the street. It looks quite imposing from street level. I was so excited to see the second storey up that I snuck in to have a stickybeak inside. I can tell you there were a lot more oh em gee moments as I walked room by room to take it all in. It was amazing to finally get a sense of the space, the real thing is sooooo much better than the paper edition 🙂
I’m willing Metricon to hurry up and build our house already so we get to see our vision become a reality!
Photo time…can you tell I was a little trigger-happy with the Nikon?
