Jimmy & Patsy's Adventure
A lot was accomplished in August!! The foundation was completed, underground plumbing and septic were installed, foundation was back-filled, radiant heat was installed on the lower level and garage, framing of the lower level was completed, main floor joist were installed, sub floor installed, and Patsy and I enjoyed our first glass of wine in our new home.
Back-filling of the foundation walls is almost complete. A "Bobcat" is something everyone really needs.
The orange pipe is radiant heat buried in the concrete floor. Every room will have its own thermostat.
It was a last minute decision to put radiant heat in the garage. Just where were our priorities! :-)
Back-filling is completed and the driveway has been graded to perfection.
The tubes are for the concrete deck footings. Hopefully, they are in the right place.
Framing has begun for the lower level. The two footings in the foreground are for the front porch.
This is really beginning to come together!
The garage floor has been poured and there will be "no steps" to get into the house. Just one of life's lessons.
All of these floor joists were installed in one day. The framers, Gerry and Buck, obviously have done this before.
The sub-floor is in place! Now we can really begin to visualize what is to come.
Aghh....Life is GOOD!
