Floor completed and walls are up (7/31/2020)

Gretchen and I are planning our forever home in the mountains of Virginia.
We have a local agent who will manage the work to build:
  • Well (Completed)
  • Footers and foundation (Completed)
  • Sub-floor (Completed)
  • Exterior walls and skin (In progress)
  • Metal Roof
  • Gas lines
  • Waste plumbing
We plan on doing all the finishing work ourselves:
  • Electric
  • Plumbing
  • Interior walls
  • Exterior wall finishing (ship-lap)
  • Interior wall finishing (tongue and groove)
  • Floors and Ceiling (tongue and groove)
  • Making our own bathroom tiles and installing them
  • Cabinets made with no metal
This was a busy 2 weeks: The tent acquired several lakes in the bottom due to the heavy rain.
So I got a new tent which seems to actually be waterproof.
Next week will include roof trusses.
