Recently the workers have had only a periodic presence at the site... Who can say why? I have to keep telling myself that they have other jobs -- and that that's OK. The fact of the matter is that while there IS SOME pressure on them to get the siding up in a timely manner (the next draw is due on its completion) really the tempo is now being set by the subs: the electrician, the plumber, and

Our Heatilator! It will be vented through insulated stove pipe that goes straight up through the floor of the loft and then the roof. The Heatilator unit is framed into this half wall that partly surrounds the stair well to the first floor. To the left of the fireplace is a niche for wood storage (our Heatilator is wood burning, not gas). Leo working on the door that will *some day* lead to

I'm absolutely crazy about the exterior staircase. Another design coup by Noah of Jasonoah Design Build as far as I'm concerned. One of the very earliest concepts that evolved in my mind back in the beginning was flipping the traditional roles of upstairs and downstairs in our barn house. Instead of having the main living spaces on the first floor where we knew we would not have the views of

Electrical nearing completion (rough anyway...)

The installation of the recessed lighting (which is everywhere we have hung ceilings) went pretty quickly, as did the running of the wires. Then the electrician went on vacation... ...seriously, though. We have a GREAT electrician. He takes great pride in his work and is very friendly and professional. I know we are getting the best from him. He made a very good case for spending a little

One of the fun parts of this job (for me, anyway!) has been watching the facial expressions of the contractors when they ponder the job before them -- having never seen ANYTHING like this before. (Actually, that's not entirely true, since each of them has worked with our builder before and therefore has probably had to deal with timber frame structures at some point.) In the case of the plumber

©Jasonoah Design Build Jasonoah.com I am through priming, spackling, caulking, sanding, and painting three and a half of the four sides of the house: just finished the front this evening. I am very pleased with how it's looking. I have to say, it's better than I had imagined. Can't wait till the pump jacks come down... ...by the way, I do NOT like standing up there reaching for the highest

The past few weeks I have been taking advantage of the only time during the day when I can get work done at the site: between the kids' bedtime (8:00 pm) and whenever the operation of power tools becomes dangerous (around midnight). Now that the electrical outlets are all roughed in and we have passed the electrical inspection I am free to continue cutting and fitting the old barn boards over
