Overdue House Update

Finally, an overdue house build update.  The last post regarding the progress of the project showed the house just before siding and roofing.  In the duration since then:
  • House has been completely trimmed and sided
  • Caulking for siding is around 70%
  • Roofing is complete
  • Vinyl soffit has been installed
  • Radiant floor heating has been installed on first floor
  • First floor slab-on-grade has been poured 
  • First floor interior partitions have been built
  • and we have begun the installation of our HRV (heat recovery ventilation) system.
Next on the agenda is to finish the HRV, build the stairs to the second floor, and schedule our plumbers to return and finish followed by our electricians.

The school year ends on May 30th, which unfortunately means the end of our the house build class for this year.  SAGA will continue working to finish the house through the end of July.  Hopefully a couple of the students will be able to be hired on to help finish the house through the summer.
