Arriving at the Skyline factory in Ocala




A busy place




Casey and Ed welcome us




The grey haired worker with the hard hat and shawl is Jan - very few of the Skyline workers wore shawls so she was easy to find




There it is ... our home on the production line... January 18, 2016




The north side of the house on the left, the south side of the house on the right




Trimming the tar paper before the roof is shingled




That's Jan giving manufacturing advice to the guy in charge (Ed)




The south side of the house resting on the I-beams that will get it to Melbourne




The south half with the box-bay windows









The south half with the sliding glass door from the kitchen into the future porch




Windows into the dining room




Installing siding next to the front door




Jan and Ed in the dining room next to the rest of the kitchen cabinets




The galley kitchen with the breakfast area at the other end




The door going left will be to the washer and dryer




This is from the breakfast area looking the other direction




The punch list making sure everything gets done




We complained to Ed about the quality of the ceiling fixture in the dining room... he said it was Early American




Dry-wall expert on stilts




Looking from the dining room across the gap to the living room in the north half




Gosh, I hope these sections end up closer together when everything is done




The L.R.




The north half of the house




This worker is in the master bedroom with the master bath in the back




Have you ever tried going down the stairs backwards on stilts?




Saying goodbye to Ed... a very knowledgeable, competent, and patient tour guide (he's the one who drew our house plans)




Another home ready to head down the highway in two sections




....and this is where our home is going, in Melbourne




... and now it is in Melbourne, in two sections and parked around the corner from the final destination




Jan is peeking in the window of her sewing room




Our new nextdoor neighbor, unsold as yet




A bit more preparation and they will move our home on to this site




The next time I shoot this picture, our home will be to the left of this one




I didn't take this so the angle is different - it's on the site where it will stay




On the site - and now to continue the process




The siding is finished




We now have an address on Seagate Drive




It's been raining a bit... time for some inside work while things dry out




A necessity for Florida... the AC people are on the scene









Here's the shot I said I would take from our next door neighbor




From the north side... someday, there will be more homes in this space




Where the driveway will be




The plants and trees on the other side of the yellow wall from our back yard




North side with more dirt ready




A little further along, ready for the driveway




The neighbor's house coming right along




Dining area and kitchen




Kitchen




Jan's sewing room




Gary's Ham Shack - doesn't look like much - yet




Living room. They promised to move the siding before we move in.








Foundation for the porch added.




"Backyard"




























































Melbourne. Ready to move in March 18, 2016
