Basement

Now that the first floor decking is done and the stairs are in, I had to see what the basement looks like. This is the storage area. You can still see some water on the floor from the rain.

The game room. Or, for now, the carpentry room.

The theater.

This is the emergency exit from the theater.

First Floor Decking

All of the first floor decking is done. They have also snapped chalk lines marking all the first floor walls. You can see some here if you look close. They should start framing the walls tomorrow.

Front Porch

They have finally poured the footings for the front porch. They are also working on fixing the west wall that is crooked.

There is just enough of the mound left to still take pictures like this.

Materials

The wood has been delivered for the first floor framing. The plastic covered bundle is 2x4's.

Materials

The foil-sided foam panels is what they will be sheathing the house with. The extra insulation it provides is required by Indiana. The corners of the house and all none heated walls will be OSB.

Materials

They have done some prep for the first floor framing. These are for junctions where one wall T's into another I think.

Fire pit

No, they are not roasting marshmallows. This is how they are getting rid of the scrape wood.
