More house construction

Sean took these photos yesterday around 3 PM. They were pumping water out of the basement and as you can see some windows have been installed(Front bedroom) and the basement stairs are sitting inside the garage. The window next to the garage is the den.

We're ROOFING.....

Erin took these pictures today. They're moving right along in Powell, Ohio. It appears that the rain that we had earlier in the week didn't hold them up too much. The crew leader told Erin that they expect to start the plumbing and pour the basement floor/cap on the crawl space next week.

If anyone would like to contribute, any side dishes would be appreciated. Hope to see everyone on Monday and don't forget packages with my name on it. Thanks!

Houston we have . . . walls

Cuatro amigos working today. These photos were taken between 10 and 10:30 this morning. It was gray and overcast so I imagine that they made lots of progress today. When I left they were working on the rest of the back wall and the wall to the south. Roof trusses had been delivered so if the weather holds I hope that the house will be under roof by the end of next week.

Deck the Halls with...a deck!

Tres amigos were working on our house this afternoon when I arrived (about 3:15). As you can see they are working on the deck and expected to have that done yet today. If the weather holds (rain is expected) they hope to get the walls up tomorrow and then the roof trusses on Friday. The sales person that we have been working with told me that the expected completion date is 3-16-12.

The 2 rear views and the view of the hole #2 of the golf course are from the hill behind the house. Lots of mud around so couldn't really get that close-didn't want my hiking boots to come off in all the mud. Hopefully more pictures will be posted on Friday.

Also-while I was there a train went by. Steve don't forget my engineer's hat!!

And the basement walls go up....

Left side photos are from the north. Top right is from the northwest and bottom right is from the west and shows the front of the house. Hard to get real close today because of recent rains and the mud.

The House

Randi and I, along with her folks, went to Columbus today to pick out the lighting for our new house. Erin met us there and then we met Sean and Liz for lunch at Max & Erma's. After lunch we went to see if the foundation at been dug and these photos show the foundation and the footer. We are exciting to see that the house is started.

The top left photo is looking southeast from the corner of the garage. The top right photo is looking northwest from the lanai. The bottom left photo is a similar shot and shows the south side of the house and the crawl space. The bottom right photo shows the basement area. The white pipe in the basement is where the 1/2 bath will be.

Will post more photos as they become available.

March Madness

So its that crazy time of year where everyone is filling out their brackets for the NCAA mens basketball tournament so I figured why not make a little competition amongst the family. Just follow the link below and use the password jones and then follow the steps to make your bracket. I think they need to be filled out by Wednesday night or Thursday morning. Even if you dont like basketball fill out a bracket and who knows you might win. And you may need to create a yahoo username to play along.
