Home Build – Week 5

Take a look back to last week, and you’ll see how much was accomplished this week! It’s amazing to me the transformation in such a short time. The rough framing went really quickly and is already complete. They also put in windows, shingled the roof, and started electrical work.

The difference is, the front windows have a prairie style grid in them, and the rest of the windows don’t. No big deal, it should be an easy fix. Everything else is looking great!

One little snag we ran into this week was the dryer vent got installed in the wrong wall of the closet. However, the contractors quickly corrected it after I pointed it out. Also, the window installer came back to correct the mixed up window I mentioned last week. […]
