It is moving along

Our foundation is coming along.  Next week the first lumber drop will happen and framing will begin.  It is estimated that the framing will take 2 1/2 to 3 months.  By fall we should have the framing done and the house sealed up in time for the bad weather.

We are also now starting to make decisions on finishes.  We met with the architects and decided on exterior materials and colours.  The builder will be getting some samples together in the next couple weeks for us to look at.  We are going to start deciding on the interior finishes and all the appliances soon as well.  Next week we are meeting with the architect to go over the lighting details for the house.  The following week Steve will be meeting about the wiring.  I will be in California and hope he does not go too crazy with all the wiring and tech in the house.

We have been taking pictures of the construction as it happens and Steve should put some photos up soon. So far the building has been going well.

In other property news Steve has bought a John Deere rider mower and spent the weekend mowing the lawn.  It also has a little wheel barrow type thing you can tow on the back.  Steve is loving riding the mower right now I am not sure if it will wear off at some point but for now he is having a great time mowing the lawn.
