We are putting the final touches on air and water tightness and preparing to fire up that geothermal heating system for the first time tomorrow. It has already been a long, cold, and messy winter and today is only February 3rd. My crews are more than ready to work inside with the heat on for the rest of the season and we are just about at that point. As long as winter is over by May, the home construction on Lot 7 is on track to be completed ahead of schedule!
This is one of my favorite phases of the construction process. For the first time, you can physically see the various finishes coming together – stone on the fireplace, sheetrock on the walls, interior doors and the beginning of the millwork phase – in the beautiful, fluid, harmony and style that we aspire for. Most material selections and designs have been completed by this phase except for the absolute final touches – colors, counters light fixtures and hardware – all of which are really fun to shop for!
