After months of planning, reviewing drawings (correcting mistakes on the plan) and getting the SIPs panels made ahead of time the big day has arrived. All the pieces should fit together and in 3 days we should have what looks like a house. Here we go...
The first floor panel is in place:
The horses are clearly not impressed (or interested) as more floor panels are added:
With the floor done, wall panels start going up:
Now for the roof:
After several roof panels are in place, it's time for the compression ring:
The last roof panel goes in:
Now for the crown, the skylight dome:
Perfect fit! (as if there were any doubt :)
Total time: 3 (very long) days.
At this point, the house shell looks kind of like a water tower. But, there's more to come!
