Coming along....

I have been holding back lately on showing new construction pictures.  This is hard for me because I'm so excited I'd like to show a new picture everyday.  Of course no one but ME would see what the changes were!   But I thought if I waited a little longer between construction posts, the pictures could tell the story themselves.

I think the last time I posted pictures we had a hole with cement forms in the ground.  Actually I think I showed the basement too.   Well, the sill plate has been put on, sub floor over the basement, first floor and now second floor and setting trusses and working on the roof sheathing!! YAY!

I have been diligently making selections and having to make up my mind on things I have been wishy-washy with for way too long.  And (on paper) it's all coming together! 

I still can't believe it's ACTUALLY HAPPENING when I am standing there looking at it, or standing inside of it! 

So without further a-do, here they are!  Enjoy  :)
XOXO















Before the inside walls were in



Johnny and Kris (in his very European swim trunks, lol) are standing near the FR fireplace




 






This is looking through the front door into the FR (it's supposed to be great room, but I like family room better)

Roof trusses on our front "lawn", lol



Front view today!! YAY!

Kristi, it is so exciting building a new home. That brings back so many memories for me. Your house looks huge. I guess that is the keeping room angled at the back. How large is this house?

Wow, it is going to be fabulous and I know you are just thrilled with the progress. I know I would be! I am so excited to be able to see this all come together since I have never had a house built before. I got my awesome book today and I bet you can guess what I'll be doing while my son is napping. Thank you!!!

It's looking good! And it looks rather large...lol. I like the angled room on the back and am anxious to see it all decorated. I know you'll do a wonderful job!

Kristi,
I don't know where to start. I'm so, so, so excited for you. I know what a journey this has been and I really truly feel joyful for you. I was looking at the pictures and I actually got goosebumps and was gasping when I got to the the exterior. Your house will be gorgeous and wonderful and as much because it's been built with love as because you have fantastic taste. So happy for all of you and looking forward to watching every step of the way my sweet friend.
