Construction update: the roof is on and windows are going in

Standard

The roofers have completed their work, except for the cupola on the garage, which is awaiting a weathervane; the windows are beginning to go in; and the house is getting wrapped.

In addition, the plumber is moving ahead on the rough-in, and we had the walk-through with the electrician this week. The electrical is pretty complicated, so the walk-through took more than four hours. Lots of outlets and switches.

It’s very exciting to see all the activity and all the trucks. I counted nine on Tuesday. The roofers cut the metal roofing on site and installed it. It was also fascinating to watch the workman ratchet themselves up on the scaffolding to install the upper windows.
