  • Update on the house project

    Since some folks were asking how the house building is going along, here are some new pics. The roof is tiled, the windows are in, the shades are mounted, the wiring is almost done. Now it's time to do the isolation for the roof.

    And here are the house builder ;O)

    That thing's moving along pretty quickly. At this rate you'll be in before the end of the year. I really like ICF's, helped a friend build a 4300 square foot house and a 1600 sq. ft. shop out of PolySteel a few years back. The walls go up pretty quickly, like big Lego blocks. The house was exceptionally quiet and energy efficient. I think you'll like the results.

      Nah, we won't be moving in anytime soon. We do it the good old way and let the house sit over the winter to dry out. They did that for ages and it is the best way to get a house dry.
      So we plan on being in the house in May or June, depending on the weather after the winter. Wow, our house is just 1200 square foot...
      I think with the ICFs and the geothermal heating we're pretty good on the energy side, should be running with very little costs per year.
