  1. Can someone please tell me where they moved the floor plans to, I can't seem to locate them on the website.

    During my search I was looking through some of the other pictures, how pretty the house looks from the view of the front looking towards the lake. Just imagine walking up to the front door. I can't wait to see the finished product.

  4. Does anyone know what they are doing with the crane? Are they lowering something into the house and if so does anyone know what it is?

      My guess is that it is the plywood for the roof covering the new addition. At the rate they are moving we will soon know for sure.

    • I agree I also thought it might be plywood but I was also thinking that maybe it was a skylight or something, I don't know if it's too hot to use those in Florida or not. You are right, in any case I think we will see soon.

    • MAOW , It looks as though you were correct it is the roofing for the new addition.

      Slps60 on March 1, 2014 at 2:26 pm
    • Slps60,

      The roof covering the new addition was is completed in about the time it took for me to do my 90 minute Saturday YOGA routine. This crew is moving along quite nicely.

      Now I am anxious to see what the drew does with the Widow's Walk.

  5. These guys are great, considering all the work going on at least they can keep a sense of humor.

  7. Chris, You can get past all that sledge hammer work. Get a shot filled double blow hammer, I used one in metal forming, paint the head to match a sledge and add a handle. Paint the handle and have fun. Good prank, I've used it.
