Some New Sticks

Was driving home yesterday through the remnants of Tropical Storm Colin, and there was a crash on the interstate. Waze┬áliterally routed me right past the new house, so I slipped into the development and checked the status of the house. Now, there’s been a ton of heavy rain the last several days, so I’m sure that’s why not much has been accomplished.

I didn’t get out of the car. From the street with the window rolled down, it seems like some internal first story walls have been roughed in. Also, the studs for the stairs are up.

The Great Walls

We stopped by the house this past Saturday, and the first story exterior walls are up. Check it out:
