Posts about posts! And holes and studs and timbers and all of the various pieces that make a house a place to live as opposed to an ominous pile of materials a truck drops off beside a big hole.
The basement is otherwise very unfinished, but due to some family needing a place to stay we quickly put together a bathroom downstairs.
Milly helped with the basement shower by pulling the tile spacers out.
Another view from the backyard at sunset.
Needed to max out the Genie lift at 35′ to reach the top of the high-side of the house. Not exactly a stable platform at that height (and in the Conmee wind).
Another view of the stones in front holding up the stairs and pathway.
A shot of Jonny chiseling out the handrail pockets from above while I was in the lift.
A Pacific Energy Summit Classic pedestal wood-burning fireplace is installed to offset the propane heating bill. Heats the living room and attic beautifully, but it hasn’t been too cold yet to really give it a go.
The last pieces of fascia are installed, as well as the world’s smallest shingle section.
The front staircase goes in. We won’t use this much until the retaining wall and pathway are done, but to get occupancy, this was one of the last things on the checklist.
Moving some large rocks into place from around the property in front of the house to make a retaining wall.
