Construction update: plumbing and roofing under way

Standard

The framing of the house is pretty much complete, and work has begun on plumbing and roofing. We’re about two weeks behind schedule.

Our framers, a father-and-son team named Fred and Jake, came from Sedro-Woolley, almost a two-hour drive, so they camped on the property during the week. They did a great job, so we took them out to dinner last week to show our appreciation.

One of the last things they did was to add a cupola to the garage roof. The cupola will be topped by a weathervane that is being made for us by a local Whidbey artisan.
