Our house is built in the northwest of Cape Coral and there is still no urban water. So our house water supply is made available via a so-called well and septic system. First of all, you need the well that is being drilled today:
The clamps were easily overstrained with our demands. They have never cultivated such a German wall-block, nor wanted to learn it. So our builder took it into his own hands. He, too, has never done it wrong. But more on this later in the building report.
The German installers would surely welcome it if they could do without the difficult slitting of the walls. Here in America, it is so easy to install any kind of pipes or pipes. They are simply installed in the wooden stands of walls and roof. The three trades of sanitation, air conditioning and electrics are now working simultaneously, and what is going on is the right thing to build.
Because we find it somewhat unreasonable and wasteful to cool down the whole house to a temperature, we had already asked in the first planning phase for various house builders whether, if so, how is it possible to get at least a two-zone cooling. The opinions differed.
We are in the largest construction phase, which ends with the so-called "Frame Rough" inspection. What is meant by this is all woodwork, such as the roof and walls, as well as the associated fittings such as windows and doors and plumbing. This does not include the installation of the sliding glass doors (sliding doors in the terrace area). They may even be installed after the inspection.
Perhaps some have asked themselves why it does not go on in our building report. The answer is simple: too much trouble with our building contractor, no more fun building a house and also a bit of fear as the whole will prosper in a strange country with strange mentality. Meanwhile we moved into our house
As the next stage of construction, we have the so-called framing. This placing of the walls takes only one day. While supported in Germany stone on stone, rich here in Florida a few timbers to divide a whole house in its premises. One can perform the walls in metal, which acts more robust. But honestly, wood is still the natural material.
Much detailed work is needed to make the roof done. It is cut and nailed and hammered that one thinks often than usual to the poor neighbors. From now you get increasingly feel that you are in a house, because it is visually at least. But still, the house is not tight, it rains a lot in August and we are waiting for the seal and with the windows on their installation.
For the erection of the roof structure comes first and last times a crane is used. It as if the carpenters the precut woods like together piece by piece in a puzzle appears. A little acrobatics here are needed, because no one is somehow saved here.
The creation of Tie Beams (ring beam) is a much more complicated matter than you could imagine that as a layman. When we asked our builder how long alone casting the tie beams would probably take, he replied "4 hours". We talked for quite excessive. But this estimate is not even enough.
