Trusses to Insulation – Day 61 – 90!
Trusses go up and insulation goes in as well as a few other things. I am a little late with posting this because of the holidays but I promise not to skip anything! Can you believe that we are in our 3rd month of home building already. At first it seemed like it was never going to be finished. Now it’s moving right along.
Let’s get on with it and see what was done these 30 days in month number 3!
Day 65 – Trusses Installed! The house starts to take shape once they put the trusses on.
Day 68 – Windows and Doors Installed! It’s always exciting to see the windows and doors once they are put in.
This bedroom is going to have a window seat.
I was going to go with French Doors instead of sliding glass doors but the ones that they put in open inward and I didn’t want to lose the space in the dining room.
Day 72 – Roofing put on! This builder doesn’t give you a choice of roofing colors, not sure if it’s just a Kansas thing or an HOA thing, but I’m okay with the color black since the house will be gray.
Day 75 – Electrical Done! The electrical wiring is installed as is the furnace.
Day 78 – Duct work installed! The duct work is all put in and is ready for use.
Day 79 – Fireplace Installed! I am really excited to have a gas fireplace. We had one in our last house but it was propane and it had kind of a smell when it was burning. There is nothing like a natural gas fireplace!
Day 80 – Wired for Alarm and Plumbing! The plumbing is in and we had our guy wire the house for the alarm. When you are building, this is the when you want to have the alarm wiring put in. We will have glass break, fire and smoke and all windows and doors are wired.
Day 80 – Tankless Hot Water Tank Installed! I don’t know why anyone would put in regular hot water tank. A tankless is so much more economical. This one is a natural gas one which is better than an electric one, however if that is all you can get, then so be it. We had one in our last house but it was also propane and doesn’t work as well as a natural gas one.
Day 81 – Wired for Internet! We have fiber optic at this house so we had our own guy who wired the house the way we wanted it.
Day 82 – Tubs installed! We have 3 bathrooms, one on the main floor, one in the master bath and one in the basement.
The one in the master bath is a jetted tub.
Day 85 – Insulation put in! It’s can get a little cold in Kansas so they put in plenty of insulation.
