Construction on our House Finally Continues // Sheetrock is Great

It has been quite a while since there has been an update on the house construction. There is a good reason for this. There has been none. The time period between the framing and any other activity has seemed like an eternity.  Every time we actually get someone out to work on the house, it is great.  They work fast, their work looks great, but then when they are done, that’s it.  Sometimes we are waiting two weeks or more between one job and the next, waiting for contractors to show up and do the next step.  We now have real walls and the first stage of the trim is done.  Now we wait on the painters to put on the first interior coat of paint, so the cabinet maker can come in, so the floor can be installed, so…….

Here are some new photos of the progress to date.  At the moment the inside looks like a mess but we were so thrilled to see walls when we got over here today, and sheet rock is a great thing to see.  This is August.  We gave our builder the plans to build the house in January.  At times I don’t feel like we are building a 1200-1600 square foot house, but a 10,000 square foot house because of how complicated everything seems to get when you try to get someone out here and actually work.

We have walls!
