April 23rd, 2015
It has been a long last month but we finally have movement with our house! The lot was cleared and then some weather slowed things down a little bit. Now that the "April Showers" have subsided we are moving along quickly. Basement footers were poured and we did a little recon once the walls were cured. It was strange to stand in what will be your finished basement in several months! Once the basement had cured, wood appeared for the framing process to begin. I was amazed at the speed in which they get the framing going. I drove by the lot on Wednesday April 22nd and then again on the 23rd and the difference was amazing. They had laid floors in the earlier part of the week and then went from one wall completed to an entire first floor by Thursday! Of course making sure things are done correctly is always a concern but they seem to be thorough and have about 10 people on site working. I have been advised by a few people to keep watch and make sure things like optional windows have been installed. Sometimes options can be overlooked. So far everything is going along smoothly! Looking forward to the rest of the framing and on to the pre drywall meeting.
