This weekend is supposed to produce 3-8" of snow up yonder.... Lucky for me, the GC got the roof up yesterday, so i'm getting much closer to being weather tight now  :thumbsupsmileyanim:

Not sure if it snowed more or not... On Saturday morning the web cam showed around 4" on the ground.  :snow:

So excited to see the work progress this weekend. Running up there on Friday after Thanksgiving to check out all the wood work / metal deck work. Contractor said that he wouldn't be able to get the doors and windows in this week due to the short work week (and opening of deer season) LOL....  I just can't wait to check out the work and attempt to layout the garage space (which I know is already way too small, but tons better than I've had for the past 9 years).

One last (big) check to write  :'( Then its on me to finish up the log siding in the spring, stain it, install all the electrical work, insulation, drywall, knotty pine ceiling, wood flooring, door openers, lock sets, etc... Going to be a busy ass spring / summer  :help:

Yeah, I suppose you're right, although not much up there worth stealing.
Also need to call my insurance agent. I guess I ought to add the sq. ft. to the insurance policy too.... Didn't really think about that until today...  :blush:

GC texted me his final pictures. We're 100% completed (what we've contracted for anyway). The rest is on me, unless I get lazy and hire him to do more, which is a possibility  :hypocrite:

Going to meet up with him on Friday to pay him, pick up the keys and get any paper work the city might have left with him. Hoping I get something that says passed final inspection....

No reason for that. Hopefully someday we can arrange a ride up there together !
I know you frequent the Florence, WI area and that's just 6 short miles away  :punk:

How do you pass a final inspection without Siding on the exterior?  Must be they work a little differently up nort... :specool:

Is that all garage space in terms of public disclosure?
