We want to build a better house for less money. I'm a stay-at-home mom, but our youngest is almost in school. I'm taking this on as my next "job." I have previous professional experience as a manager and lots of budgeting and frugality experience as a "home manager" from these last years staying home. Plus, we have definite ideas of what we want for this next house and want to be in charge of the whole process.

The shop will have metal siding, typical of what you see on agricultural buildings. I got some quotes from siding/roofing installers in our area, but none of them were keen to have me supply the materials. They all warned that I wouldn’t be able to place the order correctly and that I would be responsible if the correct materials weren’t on site and so on. Our framer had also quoted the siding/roofing as a separate line item from the framing. And after talking with him, he was OK with me getting the materials. In fact, he even said that he would work out the parts list and place the order and all I had to do was pay for it directly with the manufacturer. It worked out well, and I think the framer and I were both happy with the arrangement. Now the roofing and siding is up and we are really happy with the colors.

 

Over the past few years we’ve spent a bit of time at the property working on various projects such as planting, mowing, weeding, driveway work and of course site planning. I had gotten used to the ‘all weather’ working conditions. And especially with John, who thinks weather is a state of mind  ;-)  and never a reason to delay a scheduled work day. Well, the framing and roof of the shop was finished before we got any rain in this year’s dry, hot summer. John and I were both at the property working on window flashing when we got our first real wet weather (and cooler temps, thankfully). We took shelter under the roof of the shop and watched the rain come pouring down. It was so odd, and soooooo NICE to have a dry place to stand and even continue working. In that moment the property went from a place where you're always outside come what may – to a place where there is a beautiful 'outdoors', and when needed – a sheltered 'indoors'. Progress indeed.

Roof on, start siding.
Working and watching storm clouds.
A sheltered place to work. Nice.
