More Garage, etc...



The garage is mostly finished now with the roof connected to the main house via a connector roof over the breezeway.



The front porch roof is also now up.

And the roof is up over the screen porch in the back.


Maggie checks out the barrel ceiling going up in the hallway connecting the foyer with the guest bath and bedroom.



Jay, the builder, says the siding and metal roof will be going up soon!

Garage and Screened Porch



The garage continues to make progress and soon will be ready for connecting to the house via a covered breezeway.



The screened porch off the master bedroom at the back of the house is also now underway.

What will our house look like?



Many of you have asked "what will your house look like when it's finished?" Well, here are color renderings from our architect, Bob Bourguignon of Sustainable Architecture in Moore, SC.



And as an added bonus, here is a picture of our banker, Garner Corley of First National Bank of the South in Columbia, SC, as he prepares to write another construction loan advance for our home.

Garage, Windows, etc...



The garage slab has just been poured so hopefully we will soon see the detached garage go up. The detached garage is another green feature of our home. Having a detached garage helps keep the car fumes out of the home.



You can also see here that the staircase has been started so now we don't have to use a ladder to see the progress upstairs.



The builder has draped a large tarp over the rooftop terrace until the materials arrive to finish it so that the rooms underneath stay dry.



Our Energy Star windows from Peachtree have also arrived and are mostly installed.
