Here are photos from this past week.Â Today was THE most exciting day so far.Â The downstairs was framed in enough that I could walk through the house and see where each room would be – the bay window, the pantry, the dining room.Â I stood in front of my closet and visualized where I would put each shelf, I stood on the front porch and thought about how much time would be spent there in the future – rocking in rocking chairs, sipping iced teaÂ and watching the sunset.Â Fun, fun, fun!
ThisÂ photo aboveÂ shows the house just a few days ago.Â They were putting the floor in the downstairs.Â Notice what a “nice” crawlspace there will be.Â I’ve learned that a nice crawspace is very important!Â
Voila!Â Look at what it looked like today:
The main walls are up, and since the floor is complete, we can walk all through the house.Â I walked through every room a dozen times this afternoon/evening – imagining such things as where each piece of furniture would go and how I would organize the pantry and the kitchen cabinets.
The picture below shows the bay window in the breakfast area of the kitchen.Â I know I will spend a lot of time looking out the windows that will be here:
This is ENORMOUSLY exciting!
