and getting taller

I've missed a few weeks again. Last week I arrived on site and my camera battery was dead. A lot has happened in the last couple of weeks. The framing for the lower level went up and now there's a nice platform to work on. The ICF for the ground floor level was stacked and we had our second concrete pour this week.

The photo below is taken from what will eventually be the driveway. The garage on the left is partially sunken below ground level. The main entrance to the house will be from the concrete deck on the right hand side of the photo.

We can now get a feel for the views from inside the house. The photo below is taken from the kitchen. The dining room will be on the left, there will be a roof terrace in the center and the living room will be on the right.
