Obviously pass the second floor. No updates means little time!

We just finished up drywall and plastering is nearing completion. Geothermal heat is wrapping up.. Things are coming together. Sorry I haven't kept updating but we are doing a lot of work on our own so its been late nights and long (but short) weekends!

Wow, with all the work you've gotten done in five months it's little wonder you haven't had time to post updates throughout the process. I've been working on my living room for two months now and it's still not done...and all we were doing was replacing the floor, trim and getting new furniture.

And to think I missed a couple opportunities to be further ahead. House sat with no windows in it for 1 month because of my not knowing about the required lead time. Same for baths.. But it is what it is. Working 50 hrs a week while trying to build a house can be time consuming!

I'd love to see some closer photos of your electric meter can/risers if possible.

Looking good! Great work!

What a beautiful house and I love that color, it really stands out against all that green. The view of the property and surrounding area looks like a fantastic place to build a new home. Thanks for posting the progress from the beginning.

Those tiles look quite authentic. What brand are they?
