Angles everywhere

Some building-a-house shots for this week's Thematic Photographic theme.
See here for some extreme angles.

These have been taken over the last couple of months:







The house is all closed in now, and they're working inside. Completion date is October 29, but we had such a wet winter that they must be a week or two behind.
Sigh.
I guess we'll get there sometime!

  1. A great topic for angles!

    Poor house, it gets cold, and it needs house wrap.

    (P.S. That mud dauber is a wasp, not an ant.)

    1. Whew!
      I don't think it is cold now, thunder - it has very thick insulation, and double-glazed windows...

  2. Progess in building is all about angles for sure. It will be a lovely spot to enjoy morning coffee on the terrace/patio/deck soon? Is that lovely barn, was it still out there?

    1. It's still there, Karen - it's a house, not a barn :)

  3. I bet those angles smell amazingly woody.

    1. Hmm - they're not as green as they look, Magaly.
      Welcome, and thanks for the comment :)

  4. Wonderful, wonderful post. And yes, I have never heard of anyone getting into their house on the expected completion date. It seems to be much like a baby, it comes at its convenience (mostly) not yours.

    1. PS: You know we want photos when it is finished don't you?

  5. All those wooden angles and not an angle iron in sight.

    1. Are your frames all metal, Bob? They are starting to build steel frames here but it adds considerably to the costs.
      The exterior is brick (pale biscuity-colour, not red)

  7. Tons of angles, I like watching buildings go up. In the last picture, it looks like the stuff on the wall (insulation?) is translucent. Am I just seeing it wrong, I've never seen material like that used for building before.

  8. So exciting to see it moving along! I like the roof shot.

  9. When I was a kid, I lived at the edge of the subdivision, with fields stretching out from the end of my street. As I grew older, new neighborhoods were built in a successively wider circle around us. I remember wandering the construction sites with my friends, exploring the skeletal houses and wondering what they'd look like when they were finished. You've captured that hope-for-the-future moment in these shots. Can't wait to see how it evolves!
