The “Rough” Stuff is Done

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since I posted pictures of the house!  It’s nice to look back and see all that has changed.  It seems that construction is taking a long time.  I guess that happens when you go almost every afternoon to see what’s new.  It’s like watching another child grow up – you don’t notice the big changes from day to day!

Finally we can say that all the rough ins are complete.  Although, believe it or not, some framing was done even yesterday.  As each new contractor starts we tend to find a little something missing from the one before.

Here is the work that was done in the past month.  You can click on each image to enlarge it.

Once HVAC was roughed in as well, it was time for insulation:

They also added the framework that  will be wrapped by faux beams to form the center beam and king trusses.

Clearly we have had a lot of progress.  This week they are working on drywall.  It’s really starting to feel like a house now that we can’t see through the inside walls anymore!  After drywall, they will start with some of the finish details.   Can’t believe it!

  1. Gloria and Mark,      Looks like lots been done. We’re ready for a tour when you’ve got time. Things have been busy with my Mom. We’ve been in and out of the hospital 3 times in the last 4-5 weeks and in rehab twice. Larry took me up into the mountains to give me a break on Sunday. We went up over Trail Ridge and seen quite a few moose over by Grand Lake. The mountains were beautiful (as always). Talk to you soon. …Michele P.S. Looks like Karina will be home August 8th through the 11th. Anxious to see her. We haven’t seen her since January although we do hear from her once a week.
