Blasting was necessary just to get deep enough for footings
The first inspection
Master excavator Tony Ciulla cleared the way for the footings and also did the septic system
Four 60 foot trenches made up the leech field
Master mason Bill Sensbach built the foundation, slab and first chimney
Master carpenter George Krobatsch did the framing and plywood
Master plumber Phil Little did the rough plumbing
The rest (roofing, siding, electrical, insulation, drywall, finish plumbing, cabinetry, trim, etc) was a family undertaking
Co-worker Dean Booker volunteered 3 days of his time helping pull wires and figure out all the 3 and 4-way switches.
Only 3 more sides to go
Shawn supervises from a nearby maple
Ready for winter. Thanks to Picatinny co-workers for their help: Joe Wu on the roof; Tony Melita with siding; and Dean Booker, wiring.
