House Report, Week 32


The end is nigh... check and double check, boys; we're wrapping up soon! This is the House Report on week 32 of the build project.

(If you were wondering why that sounds bizarre, check out the Verge's 90 Seconds on the Verge tech news overview video clip.)

You've Got Mail... and You Can Sorta Get It

Way back when they built the mailbox, the brickers didn't quite realize that we needed to get in the back of it. Hence, we couldn't open the back panel at all. They did some work on it, so now you can open it to almost 45 degrees... and get some mail. Barely.

Grass + Winter = Slow To Implant

Sod was installed on Monday, however it has been disturbingly slow to take. We believe that the winter like temps we've been having can't be good for it, however the rest of the shrubbery seems to be doing fine. We'll see if the grass takes and survives through the winter.

Data Connections? Check!

From top to bottom: Coaxial (Cable), Ethernet RJ45 CAT-5 (Internet),  RJ11 (Phone)
Each and every room in the house has at least one data connection panel, which will allow for hardwiring a phone, a cable box, and a computer to the internet.
A look at where all the wires will be connected.

Incoming (Vehicle)!

The two car garage got its own motor on Tuesday, and it works well. Softer yet louder (engine is immeasurably softer than the one in SoCal, but the door itself is creaky. Perhaps some WD-42 is needed?), it works extremely well. The catch? We only only get one garage door motor in the contract, so the second one needs to be paid for out of pocket.

Dimmer Switches

We got manual dimmer switches for dimming our lights in the kitchen, they glow when they are in the off position.

Roof on the "Chimney"

We have finally got an actual roof over the "chimney", so that's cause to rejoice.

Tick-Tock, Tick-Tock

Time is running out, and we're getting pumped for the day when the house is going to be finished. It's so very close, and we can't wait for that day to come. Keep a close eye out on Google+ for us, we'll let you know the instant when the House becomes a Home!

In other news: We salute all of our brave men and women in the United States Armed Forces, both past and present. We thank you for your service and your bravery. God Bless.

  1. But do not count on to grab up one of these 10 planet-friendly 3D-printed properties after they hit Southern California's actual estate market. Azure, a 3D printing house development startup, will construct 10 properties with actual estate improvement company Reinhabit. Designs can be printed on paper with 3D know-how to attain a far more more} realistic prototype than a flat illustration. When a design is offered for approval, the 3D-printed mannequin allows the presenter to convey the essence of the design with larger detail Humidifiers for Babies and accuracy. This makes the presentation far more compelling, because it offers a extra vivid sense of the engineering realities should the design be taken to fruition. In the meantime, the usage of} 3D elements is retreating within the aerospace business.
