Roof complete, windows next

On Friday, the shingles were installed on the roof, and the front elevation of the house was completed. Windows will be installed Monday. Our meeting with Laura for our first Energy Star verification, and walkthrough with Dan for electrical, will be Wednesday.

Here is the picture of the completed roofline:

On Friday evening, we met Matt and Wayne at the house to discuss a few framing matters. There were some slight differences between the elevations as drawn and the house as constructed from an engineering perspective, and the Ackers wanted to make sure we were aware and accepted them. In each case we found that we weren't compromising; we liked it better as built.  (Especially the height of the roof over the front porch.)

We also discussed the construction of the tray ceiling in the master bedroom. When we insulate, we will be covering art: Tongue out

Here are some pictures of the upstairs:

We also have a new sign, courtesy of Acker Builders:

And finally, here are a couple pictures of how our under-construction home fits into the neighborhood.
