The pain of building forever
There has been a flurry of activity on the rammed earth build site the last few weeks. Spray foam was placed, plumbing rough-in was completed, electrical rough-in and service is nearly finished, the in-ceiling mini-split HVAC and ERV system was installed, Low-E insulated glazing is nearly wrapped up, custom Andersen E-Series windows and doors have been ordered as have all of the plumbing fixtures, and countless other small details have been buttoned up.
Building a house is a process, building a house to last forever and where you sweat every detail is doubly intensive. Add to that the 100°F+ (38°C+) heat index and extreme humidity and you realize the only reason you put yourself through the pain is because you can't do any less, it's who you are.
