My sweet (7-year old grand daughter), Destiny was here all last week and we completed the footers, removed the footer forms and are ready for the foundation walls to be poured next week. From the air, you can see that we had to bend the house to fit it on this small lot (.81 acres). The shape to me either looks like a big Gingerbread Man (as in Shreck the movie) or an arrow pointing us in the right direction!
We had to order 50 tons of gravel to place around all these footers. Thats a bunch of rock! Here is a little 1 minute you tube movie of the gravel delivery.
I have been having fun with consulting with kitchen designers and flooring consultants. I have no estimates from them yet but it sure is fun to look! I have no clue (and will probably be shocked) what their bottom line will be.
I have gotten window estimates. We have 50 windows and some are a set glass (large ones next to the fireplace). All of the estimates are all pretty similar but I have had to read up on the reviews between Anderson, Pella, Lincoln and Jeld-wen windows.
We continue to enjoy this beautiful lake! This photo is our cove from the air showing the airstrip. You can see our property about in the middle of this photo right on the runway.
Today we harvest honey and Monday we pour walls.
