Lots of Progress!!!

So much progress on the house! It seems like once they started framing, it all started happening very quickly. Things are going really well. All of the rain is NOT happening but I'm just happy that the tornadoes that went through last night near us didn't come about 10 miles further north. That would have been a disaster!!!

It's fun now because I can actually see where rooms will be, where doors will go, etc. I can start better thinking about interior decorating at this point which is going to be fun for me! Tommy has been working extremely hard every day. I'm helping out as much as I can at this point. I'm the official "holder" and "cleaner". HA! We are building the screened in porch ourselves so that is a focus right now. The roof should be on within a week and we will also begin wiring. Busy busy! Here are some pictures that I have taken over the past few days:

This is the looking in the house at the entry from where our front door will be. This will all be open so you will look straight into the kitchen and breakfast area.

Though you can't tell it, this is a very exciting part of the house for me - a piece of my closet! This is where my shoes will be!

Exciting to have windows in!!! This is our breakfast area which will look out into the back yard. Can't wait to watch the deer from here!

This is a small portion of our master bedroom - this little nook is going to be my reading area. This also looks out onto the back yard.

This is the beginnings of our screened in porch. It will have stone arches all around it though you can't tell that now - HA! This will probably be one of my favorite areas of the house.
This is kind of a side view of the house. This is what you see when you drive down our street - the garage, basement and side of the main floor.

This is our front entry from the outside.

Front view! What a muddy mess HA


  1. The house is looking great! I am excited for you - and I can't wait to see the decorating phases.

  2. It's coming along! Shoe area? Awesome!
