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.
