Better than New! Whispering Hills has a Roof.

I took the photos above this evening. As you can see, we've got a roof. The shingles were installed today. Dimensional shingles are the only way to go!

I've ordered windows and exterior doors, and they should be built by Thursday.

We should be able to start mechanical rough-ins, starting with the plumbers this week.

I didn't take a picture but we finished the "good neighbor" 6 foot privacy fence along the back of the lot today as well. It looks super nice. It took longer to build than I thought as I've never built one this way before. "Good Neighbor" is the style where the boards alternate side to side and both sides of the fence have the same appearance. It takes more wood to build it this way.

Let me know what you think of the new front elevation!

I think the house is looking great! It is so different.

When we had to get a new roof because of hail damage (fun times), my husband was adament that we have dimensional shingles. I had no clue that there were more than one type of shingles, let alone different colors. I just never noticed before. They look good though!
