This is a fun veiw that will go away in a few weeks when the drywall is added. In the foreground is the fireplace in Tim's study. The round window you see will be in our bathroom over the vanity between our sinks. It is the same small round window you see on the end of the outside of the house.
This is the kitchen window. The "siders" are getting started and you can also see a few shingles on the roof.
These windows are in the stairwell. The stuff in the ceiling is for "canned" light that will wash the walls. It will be fun to see the difference when it is all done!
I am really happy we will be able to enjoy Henry's hard work every day from our 3rd floor hide-away.
Here is a shot from our friends house. Note the round window, it is our bathroom.
Tim is learning about our propane tank
Tim is checking out the future window exterior trim
This is a drain for the porch/deck outside of the living room.
These awning windows are in the exercise room over the garage.
This is the scaffolding Henry built to get up on the roof to craft the chimeny, what you don't see the bottom half!
It takes a lot of hard work, and a lot of lumber to build a good house.
I am standing in the elevator shaft looking straight up!!!!
Mark is adjusting the framing to make sure a light can be put in just the "right" place.
Wow, what is this??? The foundation for our neighbors home. We didn't get to see our own foundation built, so it has been fun watching this part of the process.
Now this is major electrical stuff, guess I can't hide these panels by hanging a picture over them!
The orange tank in the middle is our propane tank. The guy on the right is standing on our neighbors foundation, the black plastic keeping the dirt from sliding is on our neighbors backyard.
Henry is a ture artist and a master jigsaw puzzle man. He picks through mounds of stones to find the perfect one to fit his needs. Lucky us!
One day you will stand on this porch and ring our front door bell
Jerry and Glenn are figuring out some framing detail
This will be our master bathroom, the guys are trying to figure out the best place to put in an auxillary heater. The tubes you see on the wall are in our shower. They will provide some of the heat.
These are tubes for radiant heating.
This gives you a good idea how far Henry climebed with each and every stone and all that concrete to make the fireplace. I bet he sleeps well at night!
This is the exercise room over the garage, you can see it really at street level. The two men are putting up soffets next to our third floor hide away.
Here is a close up before the wires are sorted and set to their individual breakers
Maggie is happy to be out of the car and enjoying a bit of sunshine on her future patio "hot-spot"
