Now that it's finally above -30C degrees outside we hope the pace of construction will pick up. Here are some progress photos since the last update:
The holes for the window wells did get excavated in the frozen ground conditions with a jackhammer. We will be using conventional corrugated metal wells for the side windows and a custom timber window well in the front yard.
The front door and window combination was also installed. Unfortunately, the wrong door swing was ordered. The hinges are supposed to be against the wall, not on the centre mullion. The replacement door is scheduled to arrive March 24th.
A temporary furnace has been hung in the basement. Once the gas meter is installed, we will be able to provide temporary heat, allowing us to pour the basement floor slab and insulate the roof with spray foam insulation.
