I have just finished The Owner-Builder Book. Very good read. It inspired what I already felt like I could do.

We finished the exterior paint. We went with Aura from Benjamin Moore. It's a new low-VOC and acrylic waterproofing paint that just came out. Great stuff!!! Got one balcony railing in and are working on the other. We went with composite material. We also have the second-floor joists and deck finished. That was good times!!! All I have to say is Gina, my incredible wife, ROCKS!!! Next we get to complete the interior framing. Peace!!

After five months of labor, we have moved 32,284 lbs. of concrete up and down ladders, crawling all over the house, eating some of it, wearing a lot of it, and I can't say we're sad that it's over!!! 16 tons?!?!? All of our doors and windows are installed and we have passed all of our inspections to date. We are so very excited! Now the hard part, picking a paint color! Here are some pictures, enjoy!!!

January was BUSY!!! We have all the panels in place and 95% (I'm guessing) of the first coat of concrete applied. We've lost about 15 lbs. each and have places on our bodies hurting that we didn't know existed!!! We are working on framing in the entryways so that we can get this monster dried in. Hoping that happens before summer and hurricane season. Peace!!!

November and December were crazy!!!! We got the building permit, slab formed and first plumbing roughed in, footers dug, steel installed, everything inspected and passed the first time and the concrete poured! All this on top of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, two full-time jobs and two kids, three cats and a Jack Russell Terror, yes I said terror! We couldn't have pulled this off without two GREAT subcontractors. John Wilson Plumbing and Perry's Concrete. If anyone needs awesome guys, I will be more than happy to give you their numbers! Here are a bunch of pictures. Enjoy!!!

We have finally started our house (happy dance!). The well is in, and the septic is in progress. We will start the slab stuff very soon.
