Details on House

Last Wednesday, I tried to show you the tile roof. These shots show it better than last week's. Do you see any other new details? (Hint: try to ignore the sand and mortar bags in the front yard. They're for later.)




Corner bead has been attached. Next comes stucco!



And look here--insulation has been placed. Notice the blue color on the bottoms of the studs. That's termite prevention applied. The picture below is a bedroom; you can make out the closet.


The picture below is the garage with drywall waiting to be hung after inspection.




Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is the gracious hostess for Outdoor Wednesday. Participants post pictures of anything that they might find outdoors.

Morning Sally.. the house is looking good... The first photo made me think...

"not only will Sally be happy when the house is finished... so will her next door neighbor!"... ;)

How exciting to have a new house! Years ago we had a house built and the thing I remember most vividly was how small it looked when they first poured the foundation, but as each step was accomplished: the walls up, the partitions for the rooms in, the fixtures and flooring in place.. it seemed to appear *bigger.* LOL I never could figure that out.. seemed like it should have been the reverse. Anyhoooo....

Have a wonderful day☺

Sally, I used to sell new homes for a local builder, and enjoyed it so much when the buyers would come out to see the progression of their new house...it was so much fun for me to see the anticipation in their faces. I always wanted to buy a new house, but it hasn't happened..yet! This is so exciting for you...can't wait to see it finished!

Blessings,
Mary

Everything is coming along just great! Pretty soon your interior won't be "Outdoor Wednesday" material. Although, in the federal government the people responsible for the National Parks are the Department of the Interior...Hmmm...

This must be so exciting for you. There is something enormously appealing about building a house from the ground up. I hope you are having a great week and a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday.

Sally, dearest, it looks to me like someone might just be in by Christmas! Oh, happy day! :-)

And the weather has been perfect. They can get a lot done when we don't have constant rain. God was looking out for you there. He always does!

XO,

Sheila :-)

This is going to be such a beautiful house, Sally...but then, you already know that, right!!? :O)

Now, am I seeing concrete blocks here? So...is the house going to be bricked or concrete blocks painted? I don't know straight up from North about building a house.

bj said...

I just enlarged and can see that it IS concrete blocks...fabulous!!

I didn't even get a post out last night. I went to bed at 8:00 pm. I have been so busy I missed my naps!!! LOL. I need them.

Looks like it's coming along great. When I saw the blue "termite protection" I thought it was just painted blue because that's your color. LOL.
