It seemed like it was never going to snow and then...tire chains are required to pull the trailer out! For the homeowner in the winter it may be "some hiking required". Have been working on framing, capping and finishing a walk-out basement on an existing foundation. It was originally to be a whole house but the bank said no to the borrower. Luckily she was able to get financing through a special program for low-income borrowers. She will do much of the finish work. Radiant heat in the slab and a beautiful view of the hills through five 25x74 fixed glass low-E units should create a cozy home.
