Framing Update

Framing Almost Done

It has been a little bit since my last post, but Ryan Homes nearly completed framing on our house (for the most part).  There has also been progress in other areas.  We were careful to photograph as much as we could... not only for documentation purposes - but also to serve as a reference if we need help remembering where certain studs are, etc.

Since my last post, here is what has been accomplished:
  • First and second floor framing
  • Sub flooring installed
  • Garage door installed
  • Roof sheeting and shingles done (almost)
Things not yet done:
  • Basement flooring not poured (been too cold)
  • Garage floor not poured
  • Porch not poured
  • Basement finished area/bathroom not framed
  • Happy to say they seem to have completed installation of our "missing" basement window, but still no drain or well put in for it

It will be interesting to compare notes with our neighbors about their experience once we meet them

Two beautiful homes!


  1. Dustin, I think they goofed with the garage door. The windows should be curved to match the curves of the house. The Windows on your door are for other houses. check out my blog again and you'll see what I mean. Every Milan cottage elevation has had the curved windows. - John

    1. Holy crap good catch John. I totally missed that. Its on my list now with a half dozen other things. Thanks.

  2. Yeah just doesn't look right w the square Windows. Everything else looks good. Its coming along. Make sure they wrap the ends of the trusses. What you see on them now is some sort of cardboard. They should be wrapped like the rest of the house. -John
