Outside doors installed

March 20, 2011

The assembly crew has left considering their job pretty much done. The only thing they need to do is to lay the tar-paper around the terrace roof and attach the tar shingles once it is warmer. Well, that what they think… There are plenty of things I think they need to do still. Most of things are small jobs taking less than an hour, some of them are bigger. The big things still undone and preventing approval from our behalf are the completion of the floor-construction and the installation of all tightening rods for the logs. There are ten tightening rods that have not been installed out of pure haste to save time. Also the floor construction is only half done as the assembly crew has only instructions to attach the floor beams but not all the other necessary parts necessary to insert the wind proofing boards. That subject is still up to clarification with Mammuttihirsi. We’ll see what they say…

Meanwhile, we are taking over to continue the building ourselves. We transported the three outside doors to the countryside and installed them.

The front door – from Päijanne Ovet – was almost the easiest to install as it was the last after installing the two terrace doors. One gets faster with every door. The front door already in dark brown looks a bit weird in comparison to the naked, unpainted logs but that will the case for quite a while. One of the last things the assembly crew did is to finish the works around the windows which now also are ready for the paint job later this year.

Now there almost all the garbage around the construction site is collected and dumped off at the recycling center. But another day will go to sorting through the pile of construction wood to rescue the materials that can still be used and cut the rest into firewood. But that’s for another weekend. For now, we can just enjoy the – hopefully last – snow falling on Villa Linnea.

    Looking good! How’s the view from inside through the big window front (in the last picture) towards the lake?

    View to lake is almost perfect as it pointing towards west i.e. we can watch the sunset every day.

    Are you going to cover the door not to get scratched during the construction?

    I guess we need to protect at least one door during construction where we carry in heavy and bulky stuff. I looked for a temporary old door in but couldn’t spot anything decent.
