Framing in-progress. Photo gallery is live.

Just getting caught up on the last few blog posts worth of progress… sorry for the backdating on the last couple of entries.

Framing began a few weeks ago and it’s going QUICK. I’ll have a full post on the framing process next, but for now, feel free to check out the proper photo gallery of the entire project I posted last night. The gallery provides much better imagery and angles than the webcam, obviously, and I’ll update it as often as I can. It’s available via the left-hand navigation of this site as well.

I’m thinking about adding the photo galleries to the main RSS feed. Anybody have any thoughts on that? Good? Bad? Alternatively, I could just add the RSS feed of the gallery to the sidebar.

    Looking very good! Nice to finally see real physical walls going up. Exciting times. MobileMe galleries are good for family stuff, but not very web 2.0 savvy. Post your photos on Flickr so we can comment on them!

    Nice to see some artsy photos too – sometimes during the rush of construction it’s hard to step back and enjoy the process (or beauty in a house being taken apart)…

    Eager to see more – there is a pretty big gap from those de-construction photos to the current webcam ;-)

    Wow! You Americans do feel strong on living in wooden houses :) Would make me feel kind of insecure at home during a storm e.g. . Seems to be more ecologically on the other hand, given your recycle rate of the previous construction.

  3. I normally keep up with the house project via rss so it would be great to see it in my feed! Thanks for the documentation. It’s great to keep up with.

    Hi there,

    Great site! It’s such a fascinating look at building your own place. I applaud you.

    We are thinking about possibly building, too, and I wanted to clarify on your total cost estimate. Is says total $ committed is about 218k. What is the overall budget you gave yourself? (from demolition of old property to finishing the new house – not including the sale of the property.)
