But finally, there's a little bit more life in our project -- last weekend during the Kid's Philosophy slam in Lanesboro I had a chance to chat with our General Contractor and it seems that since he is still very interested in shepherding our project.
So hopefully, given the already advanced year, we might get at least an enclosed structure (i.e., concrete walls, windows, & roof) and masonry stove done before winter, which would make us self-sufficient (i.e., heating, water & electricity) to finish the interior during the winter...
The next steps for me are:
- share the revised floor plans & 3D Model (see link below) with the architect and get some load calculations done and probably some blueprints drafted
- get estimates for some driveway buildup
- contact concrete contractors (such as Wellik out of Stewartville) to check their availability.
