There's been a bit of a pall cast over this year's approaching holiday season, mostly due to the following prospect: we are leaving our temporary housing as of Sunday and the house is not ready. Even if it WERE ready to move in to, "ready" is SUCH a relative term. The prospect of moving in right now involves accepting a living environment closer to camping out than moving into a finished dream

I haven’t really posted any shots of the back of our house since probably the slab phase. Ah, the good ole days! It’s about time I post a shot of the house at a different angle. From here you can see that most of the furring strips are in place as well as a lot [...]

This is our friend and neighbor Colin’s house. He started construction on his house a street over from us about 2 months ago and this is where he is at. Unbelievable how fast he’s gotten his house built! If I didn’t like the guy so much I would smack him!!

Our friend John Otte, who I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, is working on site now. He’s crankin’ along with the rest of the crew on the house. Soon these panels below will go up above.

Of course, in the afterlife, or whatever you believe in, you probably can’t take any of it with you. This picture was taken in the middle of us packing up our Lampkin St house last week to get it in shape to be listed. We pulled everything out of our attic, closets, cabinets, you name it. [...]

Now that plumbing rough is finishing up (see Kelly’s master bath tub), HVAC and Electrical have started. Part of this process is finding subs that are willing to work with you. Our electrical sub Electrosmith is great. They’ve agreed to let us buy all the fixtures which is a considerable savings for us and our [...]

This is what we’re putting in our house, spray foam insulation with a combination of BATT insulation (which is what you see in most homes). We’re hoping that spending the extra for the spray foam will help us down the line with our heating and air bills in a such a big house. Especially with [...]

We’re coming out of a little lull from waiting for inspections - HVAC, Framing, etc. The City of Atlanta has the most archaic system to order inspections - you have to FAX, not call or email, FAX. You get no phone call confirmation, no time frame as to when they are coming out, or any [...]

If you’ve followed this blog, know us or even watch the local news occasionally, you might have received wind of our story - we had the unfortunate experience of having money stolen from us during our construction process…something we later found out happens more often than not in this business. This money was taken from [...]

Our architects aren’t only good, they’re modest as well. You’ve heard me sing their praises in past postings and I guess this will be no different. They recently won a Merit Award(commercial/preservation/restoration category) from AIA Georgia for their work for local gallery Whitespace in Atlanta. People, they’re just getting started.
