Well, it’s been a while since I last posted. That doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been progress though! This post will focus on the exterior.
It doesn’t seem to matter where I go these days that I’m paying a lot closer attention to the houses around me. We are trying to get ideas for the siding and the roof. The current preferences are to go with a natural wood siding and a steel roof. We are getting a sample of local black spruce siding this weekend and have talked with some roofing contractors regarding the steel. We would like to stay as local as possible with as much of the materials as possible. (Big exception is the windows as they are not available locally.) There is a lot of energy used in the transportation of materials that we would like to save. We would also like to stay environmentally friendly with the materials.
We have received some elevations of the house from Garth so we thought we’d share those. These images really help with envisioning the house on our property.
