We’ve thrown the towel in with our pre-fab builder. The red flags have been flying for a while now. We’ve finally decided that we would feel more comfortable building the good old fashioned way — with site framing.
Despite this setback, we're feeling much more comfortable with where the build is headed. With tried and tested techniques and builders. We’ve got several enthusiastic and experienced builders anxious to join our team. Mark has had to redesign our wall panels so that they can now be built on site (rather than the factory), using updated modern framing methods. His new wall system is pretty exciting. One in which he might actually like even more than before! He will write a post about it, because it’s worth writing about. Something new that can open up the doors for blah blah blah… (I say blah, but it’s very fascinating. Blah is because I’m not sure how to explain it.)
Now the ball is back in our court. We’ve got structural engineer looking at the new wall system. He should be giving us his feedback and stamp this week so we can finally get the city all of the drawings it needs to issue our permit. Quelle relief that will be.
