Materials landed here this week. Lumber, OSB, siding, corners, J-channel, soffit, sill gasket, flashing, house wrap, roof vents, windows, door. Everything is tarped.

The steel won't be here until we have the roof on for the final measurements before cutting. But it will just be a matter of 24 hrs or less on delivery once they get word.

Begin construction June 3.



Grass seed is starting, foreground and upper right.
Move'n on.

Good for you SwampDonkey!

  I've enjoyed following your thread.  Always neat to see something take shape

  I will be starting another house in a couple weeks.  Me and an old friend, now business partner, did a spec house last year (as a side project) with the help of a local GC.  It went fairly well, learned a lot, and made a little, and now we're gonna give it another go.

  Best of luck with the rest of the build.

In preparation for the floor pouring I levelled out the gravel using mason line and steel pins on the corners. It was only roughed in and packed after the form was poured. I did strips 2 feet wide as I levelled the gravel. I only had 3 wheel barrow loads too much to remove. It will be packed again, but only at the back wall for 4 feet, the rest is packed good already. There will be a 2" slope from back to front. It will be 4" reinforced concrete which is poured out over the door holes in the wall.
Move'n on.
