If we have learned anything so far on our home-building journey, it is to remain flexible. Once our road was finished, it was hoped that the equipment would be moved in to start the foundation. We had plans of starting to frame the house soon after. As it turns out, the foundation guy is held up on a big job in Morgantown and it might be Thursday or Friday of NEXT week before he starts. Luckily, my dad and friend Travis have been great in being flexible with us, as they are traveling down from PA for the week of framing.
Our well permit was approved, which is great. Now, we are just waiting for the rain to stop so that the drilling rig can be moved in to start the well. The rain has been the bane of the project so far.
Dan also ordered our windows. All 409823097 of them. Ok, so we aren't getting THAT many, but we are getting somewhere around 30. Do I have any volunteers to help keep them clean?! With our windows and the design of the house, we will be making window quilts to use during the winter. They are meant to keep the heat in the house after the sun goes down. I guess I might need more help putting them down at night and raising them in the morning! It will be worth it, though, if we can eliminate or at least greatly reduce the need for an external source of heat in the winter!
I will put together a post about the design of our house soon!
PS - Is anyone on Pinterest? That site is super addicting, especially when it comes to dreaming up design of the interior of the house. If you want an invite, let me know :-)
