A lot has happened since I posted about our house construction back in May!

The in-floor heating pipes have been laid (and are now covered up with the concrete subfloor):

Lights, internet, and other electronics have been wired:

We are going with as much home automation as we can, with lights, fans, window shades, sound system etc all controlled by our smartphones.

Most excitingly, we've got most of the windows now, and the exterior wood and stone has begun to be set in place! It's beginning to look like a real house instead of a skeleton house:

Ooh, heated floors! We put heated floors in our bathroom when we redid it, and it's the best thing ever. Your house looks fabulous, and I hope we can come see it sometime!

Wow, it's really coming along!

The preschool my kids attended had heated floors, and it was a really great addition to the comfort of the place!

Wowza, that looks so nifty.

(Is it an artifact of the wide-angle lens or do those gluelam wood beams truly arc horizontally?)
