top, side and pipes!

CLICK ON THE ABOVE PHOTOS FOR GALLERY
As you can see, we have several things progressing. the siding has landed and is in the process of being installed. we are doing about an 8" reveal to distinguish it from old-school siding. most of the siding will be on parts of the house that won't be seen as often. rough plumbing is going in as well. the rough valve for in-wall faucets are installed first. the whole home will be put together with copper pipes. also, the frame work for the sliding pocket doors just went in. the external doors have been delivered and will be framed/installed by weeks end. lastly, the roofing material has also arrived, and was in the midst of being installed this afternoon. hopefully it got done since a heavy pour is coming up tomorrow! the material we chose was 60 mil tpo manufactured by gaf everguard. this is usually a commercial application, but chose it due to its great lifespan, reflectivity, and ease of repair. this stuff can be found on flat roofs of shopping centers, hospitals and even stadiums!
