Big Window Installed

Now that the large window is installed, all that remains is the front door/window combination and the basement windows. We need to install window wells before the basement windows can go in, and have someone scheduled to come and jackhammer out the frozen ground around the windows and install the side window wells. This will hopefully happen in the next week to ten days.
The gas line was trenched and placed last week so we will have temporary heat soon. Electrical rough-in also started this week.

Cold Cold Cold!

There's not a lot of progress to report over the last month and a half. With the extremely cold weather before Christmas, construction basically shut down. We have also been struggling to find someone who has the capability to install our big front window. A lift is required since it's on the second floor and is a heavy beast. We have an installer lined up for early next week and are crossing our fingers. Once the window is in we can close up the house and get going on more interior work (heating, plumbing, and electrical) and, more importantly, get our progress draw from the bank.

We did manage to get the garage framed last week:
