Our farmhouse is under construction! Framing began on July 5th, only a month from beginning framing the house was up. We set the floor trusses and then began framing the walls. Second floor trusses were craned in then we added exterior walls and sheathing. After all the walls were framed the roof went up and then the windows went in.
The site faces the golf course so views are just magnificent from the second floor. The house is nestled into the natural landscape with fully mature trees. Stay tuned for our next post, we’ll be roughing in plumbing, hvac and electrical.
We are thrilled to break ground on the Farmhouse project. Due to the late frost we had to delay digging our foundation until mid-April. We are excited to be working with Duneland Fine Homes. Take a peak at our photo documention where we broke ground and put in the forms and poured concrete to make our foundation walls.
That’s me in the backhoe. I’m a very safe driver.
