We have had rain and more rain. The fans in the crawl spaces ended up sitting in about 6″ to 8″ of water. Argh… So we have a pump in the crawl space now and are pumping out the water. Now that the roofs are on (or at least dried in) we should be in better shape on this front. I’m […]
With the roof trusses up and the eaves and fascias and barge boards going up, the houses are really, really feeling good to us. The overhang framing adds such a dimension to the houses and the curb appeal. The stacked, double 2×8 fascias add a sense of mass to the houses that, I feel, is critical. One pet peeve I […]
The trusses were delivered this week and the houses are really taking shape now. We are getting a feel for how the houses’ room sizes and relationships to the neighborhood will be. And we love it. The way the houses sit on the lot and relate to each other is exactly as we pictured in our minds. The porches […]
It’s been about a week and a half since I’ve done an update. Sorry about that, but I’ve been really busy at work and things visually hadn’t changed much. We have all of the walls now framed and are close to getting trusses delivered. My mason is installing the porch posts and cheek walls for the three porches […]
The Cottage is coming along well. Walls up, plywood on. Trusses are coming soon and the walls on the Main House will be starting tomorrow. We are doing the exterior walls as two, separate 2×4 walls with a 1″ gap between. This gives us an 8″ wall and about an R-37 insulation level. R-values (“resistance”) are something that […]
I actually thought I’d do one post on the apartment, then move back to the house. But it’s been amazing to my wife and I how many people are raising and eyebrow, asking, questioning, skeptical that we could go from a 2,750 sq ft home to a 950 sq ft apartment with little adjustment. So as I sit on my […]
We have made the next step in our transition. Our movers were on hyperdrive yesterday and what was going to be a two-day move to the apartment, then put the rest in storage ended up being a one-day event. We had tried to purge as much unnecessary “stuff” ahead of time and with Brenda’s awesome lead (she did most of […]
We stripped the forms on the Cottage today and started setting up forms on the house. House concrete will be poured tomorrow. Coming along nicely. We are using high fly ash concrete. This recycles a waste product (coal ash from coal power pants) and results in stronger concrete.
Well, after five years and a couple of months, we have sold our Wintercreek home and have embarked on our new adventure in downtown Eugene. It’s late right now and I’m tired. But I wanted to get this started and hopefully I’ll be consistent with the updates. Time will tell. As I recently said on my Facebook page: “It’s […]
Well, my site got hacked and I had to update my theme (Thanks, Greg, for all your work!). This “new” look is only temporary. I’m looking for a new theme and it will come shortly. Meanwhile, everything else should still be here. Enjoy!
