All our ducts in a row

This was as of Sunday (January 10th) as usual. I've just been lazy.


That there's a shot of the engineered trusses that form the structure of the first floor ceiling and the second floor, um, floor. It saves time on site, they're stronger, and I'm sure it's much easier to route plumbing, electrical, ducting, and the like.


Some of the ducting they put in.


We also have sheathing.


Our dryer will be vented to the outside.


Our fancy house will feature a window in the family room (I cannot bring myself to call it "great room").


A fixture and duct for an exhaust fan, I presume.


All ducts lead to Rome.


There will be a phone there. I think. I should know this.


Some kind of.... pipes.


A lot of ducting.


A shot of the trusses between floors (this is from the staircase looking at the dining room).


Window on the dining room, and further development of the front patio.


Our front walk. You can also see right in the middle the dryer vent duct. It would have been nice if that had gone to the side, but I guess that wasn't practical.


We also have a driveway. I would have liked for it to be perfectly level, but alas, that was not to be. No doubt it's something to do with drainage.


We have chimneys. At least, I think that's what they are.


The whole shebang.

I find it a little amazing that in the 21st century we're still building houses out of wood.

I love the big driveway. The house seems to be coming along great. And thanks for the Happy New Year card. It was a nice surprise in the mail.
