This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications. GC Don Lourie is doing the build and architect Brad Satterwhite is providing additional ingenuity.

Big Weekend at SFH

Don and crew have made a lot of progress in the last two days. The faux wall sections are up with the exception of a few panels. These will support the siding. They also completed the roof decking. Don used strapping to reinforce a point above the southwest corner of the house This was a precaution to correct for a missing beam hanger. We were comfortable not using the hanger because the non-load-bearing beam is bolted to the post plate and Don's solution is stronger than the original hanger.

Labor (of Love) Day

The roof trusses are going up and the house is taking shape. Grandpa came down for the weekend with us and it was a great holiday. Boat maintenance, swimming in the pool, swimming in the lake, Sonny's Pizza, fort making and house building. The boys slept very well!
