Gonna be getting cold in there Ray.  You going to put in at least a temporary heat source for working I hope.  Gonna be nice.  The doors & windows really makes a difference.

Looking nice Ray.

What parts will you be working on yourself?  

 

The contractor is going to be putting on the metal roof and we will finish everything else inside and out.

 

 

Do you have county/city water or a well?

 

City water and sewer.

 

Gonna be getting cold in there Ray.  You going to put in at least a temporary heat source for working I hope.  Gonna be nice.  The doors & windows really makes a difference.

 

We have a kerosene heater to help us out.

Looking very good Ray.  Only thing I see wrong is the back porch needs to be bigger. So when one of these days when I make my way down there I can stop by and we can sit out on it and talk tractors.  You know what it wont matter anyways we would probably be out in the shop anyways.

The progress on the outside of the house has been delayed while we are waiting on the metal.
It arrived yesterday and they have been putting the drip edge on the roof ( not much to see photo wise ).

Meanwhile, ( when the weather has been warm enough )  I have been working on opening up the side of the garage where the mud room attaches to it.
The floor of the garage is about 50 inches below the floor of the house.
I've started on building the platform in the garage that will eventually extend along the complete garage on the house side.
It extends out into the garage 8 foot and is one step down from the floor of the house ( that step is not finished yet ).

There are five steps from that platform down to the floor of the garage and I finished those steps today.
The "gray" plywood and the floor joists under the platform were salvaged from the existing garage.
The hand rails are not installed yet.

The opening for the crawlspace is in the garage wall back under the platform.
You can see the access door in the open position.
Each floor joists under this part of the platform are made up of two 2x4's fastened together to form a 3x4 floor joist.
I did this so that I could get as much headroom under the platform for getting into the crawlspace.

The platform is 4 foot wide at the front ( along side the stairs ) and for now, this is the size it will remain for awhile because I need the space in the garage for temporary storage.
This platform will get a temporary railing all the way around it.

I got a little bit behind on this ....
The contractor finished his part of the construction and turned the house over to us last Friday.

I took these photos while they were gone for lunch that day.
There is still one piece of roof cap to put on which they finished after lunch.

You've come a long ways in a short time. Is this going to the last move? 

That truck still looks good!
