Part of the fun and excitement of a build project is watching it grow and transform from one stage to the next. We've been following closely and the site was graded and foundation footers formed and poured, the foundation walls formed and poured, then the first and second stories framed. The next big step would be the roof which would allow the interior work to proceed. #dreambig

March 21-22 snowstorm brought about 14" to the Shepherdstown area.
Friday, March 23 - Even with the strong March sun much of the snow remained several days later.
Most of the inside walls are also now up, with the HVAC, plumbing and electrical trades doing their thing! We have a few pictures to whet your appetite - excuse the construction mess! All of the following pictures were taken Saturday, March 31st.
