It’s been two weeks since I last posted an update and in that time we’ve seen a lot of other homes (more on that coming in another post) and a lot of progress on our own home. True, it’s not as quick as a pre-fab or tract home build but for all the special little intricacies of our custom home, things seem to be progressing well.
We were home when the windows arrived from Kamloops. It took a few days to get all the openings ready but then it was so amazing to see how each window and door transformed the space (although the sun made it hard to capture this in photo form). It was definitely more expensive to go with wood windows and all the divided lites but now that they’re in I’m so glad we didn’t cheap out. They so enhance the quality of the space and I know that our eyes, noses and hearts will be thankful for many years to come!
We were fortunate with the weather too as it only started to rain again today, just a few hours after the last door went in!
Inside there has been more framing and blocking and in the next little bit we should get our metal roof and the front porch.
We’re getting to have a few very popular refrains around here. They go something like “I can’t wait until we’re in our new house” and “we’re going to love living in our new house”. Life has been busy but lately we’ve been able to find more time to enjoy the build process and relax a bit.
