The Beginning of Construction (6/13/2020)

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 (In progress)
  • Sub-floor
  • Exterior walls and skin
  • Metal Roof
  • Waste plumbing
We plan on doing all the finishing work ourselves:
  • Electric
  • Plumbing
  • Gas lines
  • 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 week, the construction of the house began. Technically it began when they dug and poured the footers a few weeks ago, but the foundation is visible and has finally been started.
This picture shows the progress that has been made in 4 days of work on the foundation.

This two pictures are really just to show off the view.
