The wood for the house proper showed up as well as the treated glu-lam beam for the cantilevered wall:
We also got a sense for how far from the house that beam/wall will be cantilevered:
Both of us had the same response: "That's crazy!!!" Crazy cool, baybee! It won't stick out quite that far, but it will protrude about five feet from the edge of the foundation. It's a bit of an engineering marvel because not only is the wall cantilevered a ridiculous(ly cool) amount off the pad, but the carport roof is also hugely cantilevered some 11 feet toward you (with respect to the photo). We're blissfully excited (and amazed) about all this cantilevering.
Hope they did it Wright... ;-)
The bride stopped by after work to confirm they started on house proper. Yep:
They started on the office, the kitchen, the stairwell/pantry, the master bath, and the powder.
They also finished up two of the three windows in the garage and shored up the walls in preparation for the roof trusses:
All of this is terribly exciting, and I'm seriously bummed to be out of town the next four days (grrrr....). However, the bride stops by every evening, so she'll send photos. Can't wait to walk around it this weekend!
