Homebuilding 101 ● Roof & Windows

This will be the last update on our house for a while.

We’re mostly down to the inside updates until they start bricking and rocking the outside.  Not sure when that’ll happen, yet.  You’ll be the first to know when it does.  BUT, for now, we have windows and shingles on the roof!  WAHOO!

The trim is primed and ready to go.  We just have to come to a FINAL decision on the color.  I think we’re going with a chocolate brown for the fascia and a lighter color on the rest, but we’re still deciding exactly what that lighter color will be.

Get a look at my back porch!  We’re even installing a fire pit complete with lava rocks and plumbed with gas!  I think I’m almost as excited about that as I am my BIG windows!

They’ll be installing the electric this week, they’ve got the well drilled and septic is coming soon.  We’ll meet with the alarm guy (not for an alarm) to decide on how to do a MAIN hub for all the TV receivers and speaker systems throughout the house.  I’m having built-in speakers on the back porch and hopefully throughout the house for music!  YAY!

OH OH OH…big news!!! I picked up my “Sonic” style ice machine today!!!  It’ll be built-in under counter in the laundry room right off the kitchen!

Anything cool I might be forgetting?  I only plan to build once!  Come on!!  Leave me some comment suggestions!
