Roof's on!

Stairwell getting some windows, mainly to look out into the hangar and for light.

Crimson red siding will start going up next week, along with getting the bifold door working and the garage door and sliding glass doors installed.

Its amazing how many little decisions have to be made as we go along...placement of windows and doors, lights and switches and colors and the like. I guess some people plan all this out before construction begins, but our contractor says this kind of "play it by ear" is not that unusual.

Blitzed up and back today.

Siding in progress!

And bifold door controls:

And lots and lots of wiring:

To paraphrase our beloved president, "Nobody knew wiring could be so complicated."

What? You disagree that wiring is complicated?

I think the "beloved" part was Eddie having a sarcasm.

But you do live in Tennessee and you're even building a second house there. :shock:

Actually, per my profile, we live in Mineral Bluff, GA, albeit just a few miles south of the TN line.

OK, back to the Pole Barn. I hope to fly the SkyCatcher in to see your new digs someday.

Living area just over 1,200 sq ft. about 600 sq ft on each level.

Garage area is about 2,000 sq ft total.

Rough idea of the ground floor layout:
