Construction is proceeding after a week break due to the firestorm. The boring but vital items are almost finished- rough electrical, rough plumbing, and roofing.
Once the rough electrical and plumbing are completed and pass inspection, the interior finishing can be started. Several of the windows have been installed but the rest won’t be installed until after the exterior siding is in place. The builder mentioned that, from prior experience, the weight of the exterior siding can cause sliding windows to come out of alignment if installed first.
We’re anxious to see the exterior siding and interior finishing. Its hard for us to visualize how it will ultimately turn out when looking at just the samples of the materials. When the materials are installed over a large area, the outcome may be different from what was imagined.
