New home progress in a week

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Well I thought it would be nice to see what has happened since last Saturday. In future posts will look at more individual parts but for the end of the week I thought a picture overview was in order.

Last Saturday we started with insulation and radiant tubing along with rebar.

Saturday we had a unexpected surprise as the concrete floor was poured.

Oh we also had the power company install the electric service and 90% of the septic system has been installed and some great progress for four days so far this week.

Can anyone tell me why there aren’t any holes for windows and doors?

    Hi Todd ,
    Was wondering if you went with 2×8 for the pony wall?

  2. We did Shane and the cement will also get 2″ of rigid foam and a 2×4 insulated finished wall.
