So Joey has been pushing me for awhile to give this whole blogging thing a go. But, the idea of sitting in front of a computer after a long day of construction doesn’t sound appealing when a beer, a block of cheese and NPR is calling out to me.

But, besides making my mom happy by forcing me to take pictures, it allows me a forum to show that a lot of thought goes into the house whether that be in matters of design, durability, energy efficiency or anything else.

So, as I move forward I’ll try and play catch up on the work we have already done since beginning building in early February.

These photos show the rear of the house. I like playing around with a classic two tone look with the grey down below and the white above.  Along with the galvalume trim, the house is somewhat muted, so we have these bumps out of cedar around certain windows that give a real extra warmth and pop to the house.  A large deck will be built out on the back of the house shortly that will tie in with the cedar.

Cheers, Jeff
