After the shell came the hard part, which included windows, trim flooring, and fixtures, etc.

But the shell was not a HARD process, only the concrete, which should be, ha.

Lot slopes right to left and front to back
You can see the second pile behind me as shadow to the pic - these were to fill around the basement.
The front was offset (stepped) to increase the strength of the wall although we used 12" block and filled with 3000# concrete. You can see the front backfill pile in this pic.
The natural slope was hard to see with all the growth. We shopped for lots that said 'needs fill'.

I have found a rough cost of $350 per ton, or approx 100 sq ft, of flagstone for the front porch and will see if a local retailer has it or even a freight company can get some to Deltona soon. My friend, a project manager between projects, said we could do it for (beer and pizza the expensive labor) a weekend project with me. The neighbor had a pool deck repair and they quoted $450 for resurface of the front steps/entry. I like the flagstone look.

Part 1 (Bonus down to family room)

Well, I started up in the bonus room and went to the walkout basement with the pics. Some of the problems/fixes will be backed with construction pics, so look what I am in and how much I will be doing to finish, because we needed to move in ASAP and will take our time to get the interior done.

I have been in for over a year and now have to: (1 thru 100 items to finish) 1. Sand the floor, add a rosewood design and threshold at front door. Make a center design for the kitchen. Anyone have any ideas or pics that you could offer?

See pics.

This is the center of the kitchen and the entry is behind the camera
This is the direction to the front door
