Yes, the house continues to progress!
Let’s do a run down on what I’ve been wasting my time on…
1 - Was gone for a while for work at Virginia Beach. Had an awesome view of the beach from my room, but my feet never got to touch the sand. Bummer.
2 - We’ve been spiffing up the current house getting it ready for renting it. The wife and I spent memorial day weekend and the Monday after power washing and staining everything in sight. (Pics below) It really is a nice house, I hope we can find a responsible tenant for her.
3 - I’ve been gearing up to start low-voltage wiring. Should happen within the next two weeks I’m hoping. Got one of my orders in from Monoprice (see below for kid hugging the boxes.) That’s roughly half of the wire I’ll be running along with various low voltage boxes, pull ties, etc.
4 - Yes, believe it or not, the house is now moving at a pretty dang fast pace. Since a month ago they:
- Finished all framing
- Finished all the siding
- Installed all (but three) windows
- Installed rough in for fireplace
- Finish putting the roof on
- Poured the porch
- Finished building a retaining wall
- Have roughed in all the HVAC
- Have roughed in all the plumbing
- Started the electrical
See below for various pics of state of construction.
I'll post some of my low voltage wiring plans next...
