I've been working on the inside finish now for almost three months.
Lots of custom touches inside, three stairways to finish...and five bathrooms?!! who needs five bathrooms???
In this price range private bath for each bedroom is the new normal!
Overlooks and has a boat dock on the river!
Some people have so much money that it's hard not to be a just a little jealous....but very nice people to work for.

Well....the in ground pool is going to be built before the $150,000 in landscaping goes in. Actually no landscaping has been done. Just a guy that comes once a week to keep the weeds down.

Three months of working with new materials would be nice. I spend a fair amount of time sistering, replacing, or doing Dutch for wood that was growing in the 1700s-1800s. Always fun to figure what I need to pad out when nominal is true actual size.....

Yeah...I promised myself that I was going to take a lot of time off this summer...this job was just too big...and working alone most of the time, I couldn't afford to loose any momentum.
Maybe next year:fishslap:

I did a #^&#^&#^&#^& ton of remodel way back, but got spoiled now.
So bad I wont work on houses with people living in them, too much drama, whining about dust and mess, dogs and kids running around etc..I'm done with that. Last time a customer rudely complained about a little sawdust, I packed up and never went back. Boss didn't even question my decision. Now he knows what kind of jobs I dislike...and wants to keep me around until I retire in a few years. Smart guy and treats me very well.

Great work Bob

It's rough sawn shiplap, spaced to show a reveal. Some walls it is capped at 42" high.
I don't like it much either. Customer makes choices and I install it.
Gup....your honest opinion is appreciated.:kewl:
Part of the reason I put up the pictures is to get some feedback/comments.
Thanks

Maibec's for siding? I'm going for that look with my cape... but it's 1/10th the size! Looking great.

Clammer ...I'm sure you're very proud of him....skilled and hard working profession .... no place for slackers or pretenders.
I 've been building houses since 1973, lost count a long time ago.
Still enjoy going to work everyday. Never even considered any other line of work.
I have two grown-up sons....would have liked at least one to take up the trade.
