Spring update on the house build. I finally got the trusses for the roof delivered, and then this happened.
The weather has finally improved after a snowy and cold winter, and I’ve started to make real progress on the house again.
Well, the crane truck came today and accomplished one of the few things I could not actually do myself- put the vigas on the house.
A lot of people associate the phrase “earthen construction” with the material used to build walls- adobe, rammed earth, CEB.
New Year’s update on my house build. Just before the holidays, I had the concrete bond beam poured.
Well, it’s been a challenging and rewarding year on my house build.
Lots of progress on my house build. I poured the “finished” floor layer inside.
After many delays and questions about how to proceed with certain parts of the plan, I am nearing completion of the walls of the house.
I got the septic tank installed. I need to add the risers off the access ports, but otherwise it’s looking good.
Latest update on my progress on the house. Most of the walls, except in the areas where I need to build the fireplaces, are up to the tops of the door/window rough bucks (frames visible in the picture).
