It's Snowing, kind of hard, and even though there is now some inside work, there are no workers there today. Still time for me to catch up on my own thoughts on some of the questions and comments here.
Someone earlier asked if the floors are finished inside the modules. I still can't see in most of the windows due to the lack of backfill and the height above the ground level surrounding the living space. But, today Scout and I climbed one of the soil piles and could see into the large front room well enough (not at all clear on this picture) to note the floor is a hard plywood subfloor. This room would likely be carpeted, and I cannot see into any rooms like a kitchen to see what state those floors are in.
What little noticeable work completed yesterday was some more grading of the stone drive approach to the garage opening (though the opening is still several feet above the stone). Setting a construction trailer in the drive, and rolling a serious generator on site so I assume more tools, probably lighting, who knows maybe even heat will be showing up soon.
And now for some conjecture on the configuration of the garage and more specifically the floor of the garage. This isn't a great picture, but it's the only one I have that might tilt my thinking:
Note the right end of the garage modules have extra windows, and the right most end has an interesting extrusion with peaked sub roof. Remember from pictures under this part of the building this same right end also has the insulated pre-cast foundation walls. And the sonotube poured column sites more or less at the right hand end of the garage door opening so that it and the haunches could be extra support for the portion of the garage floor that vehicles will park on. So, here is this mornings thoughts. Suppose the right most 12' of the garage will become a specialized workshop or greenhouse, or pottery shop, or painting studio, or carving studio or other art and craft room (keep the fumes out of the rest of the house). A separate room from the garage parking area, but also separated from the rest of the house. Might even have a basement/vault not yet formed, but to take advantage of the insulated exterior walls. Some of you experts might tuck this line of thought into your individual pipes and smoke on it for awhile.
Here is another photo from the east end of the building that might clarify what I mean by the extruded sub section.:
So, perhaps I'll throw just one more idea. I believe there will be a very large deck/porch extending most of the width of the building from this end. Perhaps the space on the end of the garage (which is the left end in this photo will be a kitchen/bar/audio room for indoor-outdoor access from the deck.
If only the builder would have asked me to keep the plans in a safe place for when he is here working, but so he doesn't have to bring them back and forth from his home in Delaware.
Next time I am in casual conversation with the builder, or perhaps the future home owners I'll ask.
