Here are photos from this past week.  Today was THE most exciting day so far.  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.  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 tea and watching the sunset.  Fun, fun, fun!

This photo above shows the house just a few days ago.  They were putting the floor in the downstairs.  Notice what a “nice” crawlspace there will be.  I’ve learned that a nice crawspace is very important! 

Voila!  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. 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.  I know I will spend a lot of time looking out the windows that will be here:

This is ENORMOUSLY exciting!

    It’s looking good…anytime you can get wood onto the site, things are looking up.

    I have horror stories, but I won’t tell them.

    I seriously can’t believe how fast that is going up. Having done building projects I know what it takes to get the materials and workmen there to do it and it usually doesn’t happen that quickly. At least not in my experience.

    Maybe it’s just that I’m not personally waiting on it that it seems to be going fast.
