Stained and Ready for Framing

Beautiful pictures taken by one of our builders: 20131122-204304.jpg
The concrete has been stained but not sealed. The above picture is a bit darker than it will be due to the base being covered with some ice. Framing is now underway! Here you can see major progress on the garage:

My favorite pastime: looking at these pictures and then at the amazing details of then architectural plans and back to the pictures… Amazing to watch schematics turn into reality.

A big pour resulted in a beautiful foundation:

Fog like waves

Lots of piping hidden under here. Fun to try to trace what’s what. Good thing the builder labeled them.

Hope the excavator does not fall off the edge. The fog was on top of the site when we showed up, but rolled out and gave us some beautiful sun. I have a feeling I’m going to be doing some time lapse photography in the near future.

Footings for the beam that runs the length of the house. Since it’s too late to continue cement work they will place the beams first, make all their adjustments, then fill in afterwards.

Our builders have a cool old jetstream that they use to store their equipment.

On Sunday evening it snowed a bit. Temperatures at the site so far have been a fairly consistent minus 2 from downtown Winthrop.

The pour made it easier to get a feel for the height difference between the lower and upper levels. Also the sleeping area off the library, “Max’s room” is really starting to take shape and it’s going to be really cool. The bed at the end of the library will also be an amazing place to sleep. The windows in that room will frame the aspens and have a view back up toward Lewis Butte.
