toldya! Don't be so speechless already, nah! Wait until the roof is on and walls dry-walled/ bricked up etc, then you can be completely speechless! :-)
Uh huh to both of you :D This is awesomeness...
I just realized something, the external walls of the house is going to be dry-walled type? Not concrete-walled type? hmm, now I am wondering what kind of nature damages you get in your state? Flood? Rains? Hail? Earthquake? I know my dad were worried about strong winds for Toco house so all the roof beams were constructed to withstand hurricane-forces winds.
Yeah, the way they build houses here is very different from home, but our house in D'Abadie was built the same way this one is being built - with the exception of external frame (steel frame home & wood frame here.) They can withstand the same natural disasters as home, except for earthquakes (not as high risk here), and I feel like houses home are more fireproof than here.
Forgot to mention that the exterior finish we chose ("stucco") is just like a block house at home ("mortar") - so it will look like a home house, and not like the brick, siding, or stone exteriors that are so common here.
