While visiting the LV Home Fans Yahoo! group the other day, I happened upon a site I hadn't seen before, Secret Fortress Hideout:
This blog documents the progress of our super-cool, pre-fab home "somewhere" in the wilds of Northwest Arkansas. Rocio Romero designed the home, model LVL, and incorporated our custom modifications.
Recent posts have covered insulation, lighting design, and construction delays:
A few critical path items jumped the track and will push us back about a week.
The stainless kitchen cabinets we ordered from Lasertron will be delayed due to an email mixup.
The heat won't be connected for two weeks, which delays the floor installation.
We found out cultured marble won't work for the tub or bathroom sinks and devised a Plan B (Neptune Zen Soaker Tub and custom-fabricated under-mount stainless trough sinks).
And, last, but not least, the company Don scheduled to prime the drywall bumped us a week.
I guess these things happen in building. It's just wild that they all happened in the last two days.
Like A Prefab Project, Secret Fortress Hideout provides a great first-hand look at the construction of a prefab home.
