Progress

Everything has gone so fast while seeming slow at the same time. To skip ahead to the fun stuff, I want to give you a quick flip-book of the progress from breaking ground on the footers, to the day we poured the concrete foundation.

We decided to pour a concrete pad foundation with radiant floor heat throughout. We will have three separate sections and thermostats. The garage will be one, the master bedroom/bath and walk in closet and then the great room and spare bedroom/bath and laundry. The floor heat system will work off of natural gas an a boiler that hangs on the wall in our garage. We were lucky enough to have the radiant floor heat in the basement of our previous home and we LOVED it!
