My new home construction is on track, a few days ahead of schedule. More luck than skill, however. The weather has been cooperative and with a relative lull in both residential and commercial construction in this area, I have not had to wait at any time for work crews. Same with construction supplies, no delays on that front either.
The house is up, roof is on, windows and outer doors are in. Plumbing, electrical, and miscellaneous wiring are all roughed in and have passed inspection. Electrical code is NEC 2017, the most up to date standards, everything in the house is either GFCI (damp/wet) or AFCI (everything else).
Still quite a bit ahead. Insulation and interior walls will be coming up shortly. Next week the septic tank/system will be laid.
I was quite pleased with the weather dynamics. The site is 2,800 feet in elevation, or double of that of nearby Mount Airy which sits at the edge of the piedmont. Even during the recent heatwave, while not ideal, it was far more comfortable up here, than down a few thousand feet. While I don’t plan on spending summers here anytime soon, it is a decent summer location, compared to locations outside the mountains.
I will say that I might need snow chains to get up here when the place gets socked in with snow, like happened just a few months ago.
