Island House Update March
I had a wonderful visit to the island house this week and was thrilled to see such exciting progress on our new house design. The construction crew is a terrific team of skilled craftsmen, and exudes real enjoyment in their work. The owners are living in the tiny original cabin right next to the new house site, so they keep the carpenters happy with coffee and treats every morning. Can’t beat that: along with an exquisite view from their workplace, who wouldn’t want to have that job?!
We walked through the house interior with the electricians, deciding on exact locations for lights and switches. The interior is in a state of open stud walls right now. All the rooms are there, but you can see through the studs! In a few cases, framing required that we lay out our lights a little differently than the plans showed, but overall we were quite happy with the results. Laying out the lighting on-site like this is a critical step in the construction process.
The next few weeks will see the electrical and plumbing rough-in work completed. After that, insulation goes in and we can look forward to sheetrock. That will REALLY look and feel different!
