The entire house will have fire sprinklers. I'm also using blown in cellulose in the attic and it's supposed to be best for fire. This is all one story so no living space is above the garage.

YOu having the GC do everything up to sheetrock or is he/she doing finish as well?
He's there all the way through cert of occupancy. Glad I hired him. I'm out there everyday, but it's just accountability and making sure the details are getting done. I have caught a few mistakes already that have been rectified or will be. He cut me a square deal and I wouldn't save any money without him. He's saved me money on framing, plumbing, and concrete already. His subs like to make him happy and that helps me. Plus I have his eye of everything and I don't know any better in many cases. Between my young family, my real estate team, and crossfit, I probably wouldn't sleep if I was owner/builder. I'm really enjoying it! They chalked out the walls today and I got to walk through the house for the first time. Pretty cool!

Framing is coming along nicely. They put up the garage walls today! Looks great!

The second photo with my son Hugh is from my game room. It really doesn't do the view justice as it's much closer and more vibrant in person. I have another mountain range out the end of the room as well. The windows on this house are humongous. I'll post some more photos of the framing once it's further along.

Likely polished if anything. I'm all about lower maintenance these days.

You got that right. He turns three next month.

Thank you my friend.

Interesting to see different building & framing techniques around the country. Looks like it's going to be an awesome home, congrats.

Love the framing stage!! That is when the first part of the vision becomes real. Looks great so far.

It's a blast. 2x6 on all exterior walls plus any load bearing inside the structure.

I'm still pinching myself in disbelief that I get to call the place home. Framing moves quick and you can really start to get a feel for how the house will live and feel. So far I'm very pleased.
