It's snowing in Austin. Right now. Work was canceled today because we got a night full of ice and freezing rain and something called graupel: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graupel.
I think it's safe to say that there won't be much work done on the house this week. Things could be worse though; I could be at work.

Quick Update

I went out to the house yesterday and it's completely dried in. We're waiting for our windows and once they're in the A/C and electrical will be installed. Sorry I didn't include pictures with this post, but they would look a whole lot like the last two.

More Progress

The holidays are over and work has resumed on the house. This week they finished framing and started the plywood siding and the roof.

Here's a view of the front. You can see the carport on the bottom left and the front door in right center.

And here's a view of the rear from the lot next door. Hopefully I'll be a little more creative with my shots as the progress continues.
