Construction Continues

Construction has moved quickly so that by late March/early April,, virtually all of the exterior framing and construction has been completed.
The top front dormer was completely demolished and then rebuilt with a new roof and entirely new framing and sheathing (see photos).
It's starting to look like it's supposed to, and even thought our exterior footprint is only slightly larger than our original house, it seems much larger both inside and out.

Scott and his crew work incredibly quickly, rebuilding the dormer in just a week. The site is kept incredibly clean at the end of each day and the work seems solid. We're especially pleased with some of the attention to details that have replicated the period roof and eaves.
The windows on the top dormer are especially large, primarily because of code issues and required opening height for emergency egress.

Our almost 4 year old son continues to call this our green house, and although I'd like to believe he understands what we are doing, I think it's just because the sheating is green. :)
