Hammer and Nails Update

The siding continues to go up.  This is the raw color; it will get painted pretty eventually.

The exterior trim is going up.  The guys are doing such neat work.

Finally, the weather allowed the shingles to get started.  I like the way they look.

A round of inspections was completed last week and the insulation is now in.  It’s that white stuff on the wall in the background of this photo.  The sheet rock is going up on ceilings and walls.

So that’s good progress.  And it’s starting to look like there is a light at the end of this long, long tunnel!



  1. Hooray for progress! Do you have a guess for when the house will be done?

  2. The builders have never given us a finish date, but in the fall I asked the designer to estimate, and she thought if everything goes smoothly, May, and if there are delays or problems, later into summer. She thought the latest it might be would be August. I can tell you, it won’t be May!
