Applied for the well and septic permits on Friday and they will be coming out to inspect the lot to see if we can qualify for a 7-8 Bedroom House.  It is more than we need but we will be adding a Father -in-Law suite to the AAC house a little later.  But for now, Just the house. 

We had a Landscape Architect come out and check the lot out and help us to decide where everything should go.  It was very helpful to say the least.

Until later

The elevation drawings are about complete and we have made several changes to them. It looks as if the original plan to have all ellipse windows on the front of the plan was too expensive. $800 for square casement vs. $2,000 for arch glass tops. WOW, what a difference!! 

The great thing about the SafeCrete is that we can add a detail to the top of the windows that looks like a ellipse arch. By adding 1" thick pieces of SafeCrete around the window and covering it with stucco, the windows will look like they have arches.

We are having a landscape architect look at our land to decide what is the best way to orient our house. He will also design our landscape plants for the house and surrounding areas. He will decide what trees we will be clearing in the beginning.

I will be sending my plans down to a sales rep in Alabama (Mark Schlader) who will be estimating the amount of the SafeCrete I will need to order, as well as mortar. He has been a great help in this process and has turned me to a lot of other people that also have been very helpful. We will be using an installer that he knows in Alabama to install our block for this house.

Until after the meetings,

Daniel

We have been meeting with the architect for 4 meeting  now and have been narrowing down a plan that works with the Safecrete Block.

Progress has been made and the house plan is about 5000 sq ft.
