The Walls Go Up – Happy Father's Day!

Last week was a big week. We finished MEP (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing) and have started a number of things. The house now has the following:
  • All power and electrical
  • All Plumbing
  • Gas (don't laugh)
  • Low power for AV and Alarm
  • Sprinkler system (the neighborhood requires it)
  • Sheetrock is up and the first pass of tape and float is done!
We've picked paint colors, tile and most of the finishes. I think I'm picking the pavers tonight.

So the newest additions to the house are the stone around the chimney (they will do the outside of the house next week) and the cover on the roof of our cool front porch, we get a lot of compliments on the porch. BTW, we put a TV outlet on the front and back porch! We'll be in during college football season, man I can't wait. We are still on schedule for September, if the rain will hold for three more days the house will be water tight... we hope!

Here's the front porch!

Beams and sheetrock in progress

What's under all the sheetrock, we're going for efficiency.
