The weather over the past month has not been conducive to building a house.

Ten or so inches of snow over the Christmas weekend followed by more rainy days then we see in Springtime has left our building site too spongy to work on. A forecast for another major storm for this weekend, Feb5-7, will put the groundbreaking even further behind.

Here is what’s transpired over the past thirty days:

The floor plan, building contract, specs and drawsheet have been completed and signed. Next stop: lay the foundation.

The well is in. And it turned out to be a deep subject, indeed – 500 feet deep, in fact.

Roof and siding colors have been picked. The roof will be a metal standing-seam roof, and the siding will be HardiePlank. I guess you could call the color scheme “Earth toned”.

Here’s to dry weather and sunshine.
