Just wanted to share some photos of our first ground up stick home build with you all.
The hole was dug and the Crete was poured mid October. We started framing beginning of November. The roof was on just be for Christmas. Windows were all in just after New Years. Subs were roughed in by mid February. Insulation and drywall was completed first of March as well as siding, soffit and fascia. Painting is done now, electrical finish is near completion.
Here are a few of the details. 1532 square feet, 4 bed, 2-1/2 baths. Anderson eagle windows, LP Smart diamond coat siding and asphalt roof. There is every common insulation in this home (homeowner took it upon himself to GC the insulation). Knotty alder cabinetry and millwork. T&G pine ceilings. Ship lap pine flooring that the HO salvaged out of an old corn crib. LED lighting from ilumigreen.com.
That’s what comes to mind now.April 29, 2016 at 11:49 pm #510015kswissProedmonton, AB

I like the look of that LP prefinished lap siding. That gable end truss looks great too.April 30, 2016 at 4:35 am #510087r-iceProDurham region, ON

Any interior shots of the flooring? Sounds interesting.

Nice looking place you have built. It sure looks bigger than a 1532 sf house.

Beautiful. I would not class that look as rustic, but I am a little behind the times too.

I don't do a fast job. I don't do a slow job. I do a half fast job.April 30, 2016 at 11:48 am #510220AustinProCovington, KY

The railing on the deck and basement stairs will have rebar for the spindles. The flooring hasn’t been laid yet, the HO is still working on lacquering the boards.
All the T&G pine ceilings are done though.April 30, 2016 at 4:12 pm #510272
That looks great , very nice looking home , what will go over all those boulders or stones , landfill I assume ,April 30, 2016 at 8:10 pm #510309WoodsConstructionProSudbury, ON
I like the nicer gussets on that gable truss to give it a bit more of a finished look.
Project as a whole looks great.April 30, 2016 at 8:27 pm #510317
@boschmanbrian, the rip rap is the finished product serving as a retaining wall. All of the rock came out of the fields around the house. The land has been in the family for a couple generations. As they farmed the land and exposed the rocks they would pile them all in the same place for years. And now they have a permanent use.April 30, 2016 at 8:42 pm #510318SiberianPro
Windows really help to the overall appearance (, entire look is inviting.
