We spent a good bit of time yesterday simply cleaning-up the site.

We also started the plumbing yesterday and got all of the underground in and plan to poke the stacks thru the roof today so that the roofer can seal everything up on Monday. Today we test the underground and then it is on to the first plumbing inspection!

So far so good!
Are those bottom plates Pressure treated? If not, they should be!

By george bottom plate looks to be untreated, knock her down and start over
If the stud walls were on concrete slab it wouldn't have passed inspection without the bottom plate be'n pressure treated

Good progress this week. Think you can finish up this week and we'll stop over after the BHM open house

Look closely, the picture is framed walls on a sub floor, not on a slab.....

The walls are framed on a subfloor and the sill plates are all treated attached to block foundation.

As for stopping by after the BHM Boat Show, you guys are always welcome, just be ready to get those nice clean vehicles a little muddy! If the weather stays decent this week I will likely have to miss the BHM show as I will be trenching!

As for what should take place this week, the framers will finish the front wall today, get the rest of the windows in and be off site. The roofers start today or tomorrow and we got all of the undergrond plumbing in over the weekend along with the stacks poked thru the roof and some drains done. Wednesday will be the underground inspection so Wednesday night will be time to get the basement back in order for concrete.

1/15/2013: We are 100% weathered in!

Well, the framers are done, the roofers managed to shingle the house in 1 day, the windows and doors are in (except for walkout sliders which will not go in until concrete is poured) so we are now weathered in! From digging the basement on December 1st to the framing starting on January 2-3, I am amazed at the progress. The plumbers will have all of the rough done by the end of the coming weekend with the HVAC guys coming in on Monday followed by the electrician and insulation people! As far as the outside goes, the siders are set to begin next week.
I have a friend who began his new home 1 week after us roughly 15 miles from our site and he has a poured foundation and floor at this point but no walls (yep, he's a little behind us and I am glad I bet him that beer that we would be done before him!).

Here are few pics taken on Tuesday.

I have not read all the posts, so it may have been mentioned.

This is the time to add blocking for towel bars, stair railings, wall hung tv and anything else that you want to be secure.

I also ran pvc conduit in a wall from the basement to the attic for any future wiring that may need to be done.

Looking good.
