A little history on this project. We bought our property last July and started on the design of the house. The final design consists of a main section containing a family room with vaulted ceiling, office, and a full bath. It also contains a loft.
The right wing contains the master bedroom suite.
The left wing is the kitchen/dining room, mud room/laundry and pantry.
There is also an attached two car garage.
The left wing has a full underground basement while the main section and right wing will have a sunlight basement under them.
We planned to build in sections so we would not have to take out a mortgage until we sold our existing property.
The initial phase consists of the left wing and attached garage. The attached garage will be used for the bedroom, living room and office. A temporary bath will be put in the left wing in place of the pantry.
We will also build a detached two car garage that will eventually be used for storage. This will keep us in compliance with the covenants
We broke ground at the beginning of the week. There were some delays due to the snow but by the end of the week we were far enough to be able to pour the footer for the left wing on Friday.
Plans for this week include setting up the ICF Panels and pouring the basement walls. This, of course, will progress as the weather permits.
