2011 Ultimate Beach House, Week 5: Progress Update

April 25, 2011 | By | Comments (11)

Is it summer already? Get out the beach towels and sun block! Norfolk hit a high of 90 degrees over Easter weekend, and it will continue to stay nice and toasty throughout the week. And as summer gets closer, the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House is getting even closer to being finished with each and every day.

The Fabral metal roofing is about halfway finished, and the James Hardie siding has been started. The Marvin exterior doors are complete, and the interior drywall is 75% done. The installation of the interior door frames will begin late this week. With the drywall up and  the house coming together smoothly,  the genius of the very efficient floor plan is really becoming apparent.

    Good choice on the roof, Angela! That’s perfect for reflecting the sun’s rays and keeping the beach house cool. I’m not sure if the weather’s gonna remain like that throughout the whole summer, though. I mean, you should expect rain clouds to shower some blessings from time to time. I could see that happening through the 2nd photo.

    I agree with you Galliena Gornet. Now I know, the next thing to do after finishing the house is to beautify it. They will then make flower garden, lawn or potted plants. I just want you to know, that fertilizers help in sustaining the health of your plants. If you are planning to make gardens, you can have a visit at Wolf Mountain for the things you could purchase for your garden. I assure to you, they have quality products, I have been their patronizer since I started my garden.

    If you want to go through a private agency and want a very young child, then you will pay a ton for those options.

    As observed, loss of limbs and even lives will be there. The main idea of keeping people in hunger in India is to make ‘freedom of speech’ useless for them, so that people in hunger can be hired for nefarious activities, bogus voting and mob-violence.

    If you love your Mom’s dress, and she is going to let you wear it, you are in luck. All you might have to pay for are some alterations and cleaning, instead of paying for a whole new wedding gown.

    It might be weird but the pictures don’t make it seem as if summer is approaching and it’s searing hot. That’s because of the cloudy atmosphere they have. LOL! Kidding aside, the roof is pleasing and is effective in deflecting the rays. I hope it’s done now. Publish your 2nd set of pics soon! 🙂

    Would you please supply me with the type of Fabral Panel used and the color. I also would like to know the color of the exterior.

    the Anything for Hire business directory does exactly what it says on the tin. If there’s a demand for a product, service or talent, you’ll find it listed on our site.
