    Update- footings are all in and started working the tin around the sides. Window frames/windows in progress this weekend, then the roof goes up soon.


    Windows going in.........

    Pad for the AC/heating unit.....

    Back wall/footing with the pad poured for placing the rainwater collection tank in the background.

    Steel fits down in the lip for a good seal....

    Exterior is much faster than the framework. All walls except for the living area front are up and the windows are in. We did a 4 foot overhang on the 2 stalls and an 8' one over what will be the porch.


    Living interior space....

    Up close


    Dividing wall- mucho insulation coming up!

    Pretty good fit

    Gutters going up for rain catch system.

    Interior work progressing nicely- exterior metalwork pretty much complete. Now the framing and walls are going up inside-



    Front windows are 48"- plenty of view...



    After the framing comes electricity, then foam insulation, then finishing out the inside, adding the HVAC and rain catch system.

    Interior walls are all up and the plumbing is ready to go. Electrician is coming out this weekend to get started up. Once he's done, it's insulation time then foam spray-in insulation.

    Thanks! It's 400 yards to the next fence and the closest neighbor is over a mile away.

    Foam insulation completed and the front is now buttoned up with door and windows.
    Interior foam shaved and ready for walling in.

    So far we're using recycled 4 and 6" fence boards- like the look.....

    Very nice! Did you do the foam yourself? Like the insulation but far too expensive up this way for a 'budget' build.
