Today was a good day and it was very productive. Our builders got the exterior framing finished up. There will be a modification on the back wall and the doors and windows need cut-out. Our windows, since they are more than six feet off the ground in the back, need to be 24" off the ground to meet egress standards for code. Ours were way off, but after an early morning meeting with our materials supplier, we came up with an idea to use a thinner micro-lam beam for the load bearing header- and we got our height. The front windows needed to be 18" off the ground so we go that straight. The window place liked our persistence and they rewarded us. They offered our old order of windows at cost! So we took it and ended up with $1200 worth of windows for $800.

Our builders have the whole exterior framed and ready for the trusses. They framed two rooms on the inside our laundry room and my office. It was very cool to see the rooms finally start taking shape, and you can kind of get a visual now for what it will look like.

We also moved around a few piles of materials to make room for the trusses and the crane.

Our Mason arrived after our builders finished and he and I tarred the foundation. I am so paranoid about water. In our current house the basement leaks badly. So on the new house we applied Thermaseal and tar and we will add 1" foam all the way around before backfilling.
