This week we had a nice sized two-story home delivered over in the Adirondacks of New York State and that is where we have been all week. It went this way:
- The Delivery – the four-module home was delivered on Tuesday of this week. Actually, one of the trucks was delayed in traffic and did not arrive until the next day. Fortunately, the one late truck was for the second floor and everyone worked around the unexpected delay.
- The Set – on Wednesday, the day after delivery the crane arrived along with the set crew, whereupon the four modules were gently placed on their permanent foundation. Occasionally someone will mention that the modules are dropped on the foundation. “Dropped” is a word we don’t use, we prefer “gently placed.”
- At the end of one day all four modules were assembled and the roof was in place all covered with a tarp.
- Throughout the process the weather report continued to repeatedly call from rain and thundershowers. That never materialized and as you can see in the photograph the weather was really very kind throughout.
- One the second day of the set the roof shingles were finished after removing the tarp and siding was being installed.
- This photograph was taken half way through Thursday and by this afternoon (Friday) everything looks far more complete.
How’s that for three days work?
This particular home has roughly 2,600 square feet of living space and is a custom design from a New York State architect. Included with the design are:
- Three bedrooms
- Two and one-half bathrooms, the master ensuite is spectacular
- Gourmet kitchen
- Dining room
- Vaulted ceiling living room
- 16’ ceilings in the dining room
A covered deck is planned for the front door area. Out back the home has big expanses of glass to take in the view.
So, what do you think; is this house a big YES or not?
