Week 25: Windows, Garage Slab, & Thanksgiving

Not much happened on the house week – we’re still waiting for the siding subcontractor to finish his last job which I guess is taking longer than expected.  In the meantime, the final three windows arrived and look fantastic!  The window above the entry door, as well as two oval windows (main house gable and one in the great room) were installed.  With those finally in, now the heat will have a better chance of staying in the house.

By the end of the week, here’s what the house looked like…all the windows were in!

Two of the three missing windows that were installed was the oval in this main gable and the arched window above the entry door.

I think the entry turned out fantastic!  I can’t wait to see what it looks like when the paper is removed from the entry door glass.  I think it doesn’t come off until the end though – right now it’s protecting the glass and already tapes the glass off for when it’s painted.

The 2nd oval window was added to the great room too…can’t wait to take the protective paper off those french doors too!

Besides that, Matt had the garage slab reinforced and poured this week.  Not much besides that happened though – it was Thanksgiving on Thursday so really there was only 3 working days.

Rebar was placed prior to last week ending to get ready for the pour on Monday.

The garage slab was poured this week…looks great!

Joel and I took the boys to the Bay Area for Thanksgiving which we hadn’t done before – visiting relatives.  We had a lot of fun, and it was a much needed little vacation for the boys.

A little wine tasting in Sonoma is the family's tradition in lieu of black friday! I'll take that any day!!

This was what the yard looked like the day we returned from California...just a teeny bit chillier than Sonoma County!
