I’m afraid you’re going to have to bear with me for the next few weeks (months) while I’m unable to think of anything but “house”. I hope to be back to regular gardening and cooking posts before too long.
The main floor of our house went up on Friday, and we happily froze our butts off so we could take in the show!
When we got there, the basement walls were all done, and the subfloor for the next level was in place. The truck carrying our house arrived not long after we did. Look at that excited grin!
The crane started lifting the panels over onto the structure…
…and within about 3 minutes they had two sections up (here you see the very first one, the corner of our master bedroom – what you can’t hear is my husband giggling like a schoolgirl).
There was an entire wall within 20 minutes.
Here, the living room window is being dropped into position…
…as well as the dining room window. I was a little freaked out by how large and looming it looked, because I was wanting it to be nestled into the hill a little more. Our contractor has promised me that once the backfilling is done it will look less obtrusive.
From the back side it doesn’t look too bad, so I’m hopeful.
All of this happened in the space of about two hours. This week, they’re working on the floor joists and subfloor for the next level, and the roof should go on in a couple of days. You gotta love pre-fab!
