Really glad we found the site when we did, almost make some huge mistakes; but luckily reading about other owner-builder jobs help sway our decisions in the right direction.

In four days, our mason and his crew have been able to build up our entire basement (2,979 blocks), garage, and one of the two fireplaces. They are amazing and just so hardworking! Because it is happening so fast, I have to say when I return home from work each day, the progress just takes my breath away. Then, of course, the panic attacks emerge, during which the measuring tape comes out and we have to confirm all lengths and widths against the plan. So far, not only has he been spot on with all wall measurements, but when placing a level on each of the walls, everything checks out PERFECTLY! Again, not only is he amazing, but he has a need for speed!

We have scheduled our framer to come out starting next Tuesday. Additionally, the mason will be applying a scratch coat to the exterior walls (below grade) in preparation for tar application. My hubby has his weekend of tarring cut out for him. I will be on the sidelines cheerleading, picture-taking, and perhaps adding feathers to the mix... stay tuned!

A pressing issue is whether we will go single- or double-entry door. The consensus seems to be double doors are grand and beautiful, but now I just heard they tend to be very drafty. That just threw a real monkey wrench into the plans. More research is obviously required!
