Today our builder had a rough day. His rear end gear (or something back there) went out on his truck so he lost most of the morning dealing with that.
Even so, progress was made on our house. The boards around the base are all in place, and the horizontal boards on the frame are set on the front and back - these are the boards that will have insulation between them and that we will attach the drywall to. (The picture is kind of dark. If you click on it though, it will enlarge and you can see the work better.)
Today our water meter was set up by the rural water company too. They were out yesterday but had to leave to work on a broken pipe somewhere.
Our builder is still shooting for Thursday to have the frame completely put together. Our plumber is scheduled to come on Saturday to rough in the plumbing, and we will hopefully have our slab poured early next week. Then comes the siding and roof.
Keep peeking, and I'll keep putting up pictures as I can.
