Five Year House Project

Grandsons house project is quickly coming to an end and move in day is near. I’m hoping to see an announcement for open house sometime near the 4th of July this year.

Summer 2015 concrete slab was poured and ruff in plumbing is finished.

Spring / Summer 2016 In the beginning red iron was purchased, trusses custom constructed and house framing was welded up waiting dry in day.

Summer 2017 House dry in.
Exterior doors, windows, insulation, wall and roof sheet was in place before our fall rain season and the first cold weather arrived.

Summer, Fall, Winter 2018 Interior room framing, plumbing, electrical wiring and drywall in nearing completion.
Most of the detail time consuming projects are underway. Drywall taping and bedding, painting, wall outlets and light fixtures, ceiling fans are being installed. Much of the trim work still needs doing.

Winter / Summer 2019 There’s daylight at the end of the tunnel. Tile flooring has been installed. Kitchen is in it’s final phase, appliances are being installed.
Water, sewer plumbing electrical service are all installed.
Grin what else does a grandson and grand daughter in law, great grand son and great grand daughter need?

Grandson may forget to say thank you for all the help and encouragement but I won’t forget. Had it not been for Mom, dad, uncle’s, aunt’s and many others this house would still be nothing more than a few grand plans on scraps of paper.

The best and most important part of this 5 year project is he owns his house free and clear without the need for a 30 or 40 year mortgage. Has no bankers or loans to contend with .

  4. Wow.
    The idea of building something from nothing is so appealing – and I often think, so American.
    This is very much appealing to my fantasies of building and moving into a shed in the middle of a field.

    • Thank you for your nice comment.
      It has been a long, slow project but it will soon be move in day.
      The best part is it’s paid for. No bank loans and no mortgage payments for the next 30 or 40 years. As of now a $1200.00 to $1800.00 USD monthly mortgage payment is common for a new house this size.

      Good luck and Happy Gardening
