As we drove up the hill, a large crane appeared in the sky.
The large crane was jacked up on wood blocks to get the needed angle
to lower the beams over the back of the house.
Steel beams for the two decks
Workers on tall ladders steady the beams and bolt them into place.
Construction finally started on the French roof on Thursday!
The tallest point on the roof, over the soon- to- be front door!
This week was spent looking at stucco samples and stone samples. We have found a local wood maker in Waynesville to create this rustic door for our entry.
It will be built from reclaimed timbers. Being so rustic in feel, we found a stone that is
harvested from a local mountain, called Doggett Mountain stone.
It is very rustic and we like it's color.
I like the idea of using a local stone that is harvested only a few miles from our house.
The builder is in the process of getting all the exterior materials samples
together so we can see how they blend.
It was a very exciting week! So glad we are down here to watch it being built!
