We're headed north to the factory this week to get a behind-the-scenes look at the first phase of construction on the Sunset Breezehouse.  This factory is huge, as in 250,000-square-feet huge. Makes sense that there is factory bicycle to get from one end to the other. By the day’s end, that bike was looking fantastic to me.

The steel framing is complete and the home’s three modules are framed.  Installation of the Warmboard radiant floor heating is almost finished. This will be heating source throughout the home’s first level.  Next, the walls go up and insulation goes in.
