House Progress

The last picture I posted of the new house was pre-foundation, so I thought I would post some pics of the progress.  It's coming along, and so far, so good.  Everyone has horror stories to share from their building process, but we've been really pleased.  There are a LOT of decisions to make along the way, which I think are fun, but hubs does not share that feeling.  We have a third (and hopefully final) meeting tomorrow to nail down our tile options.  Brick/rock should go up soon, cabinets have been designed, plumbing fixtures and appliances have been selected, and countertops have been chosen (not the exact slabs yet, but the colors).  Next on the list is selecting paint colors and shopping for lighting fixtures. for me, beat down for hubs. I've got lots of ideas in mind, so hopefully these selections will be somewhat easy.  Now for some pics.  The first two are from several weeks ago, and the rest are from last week.
G drove out bright and early to check out the slab being poured.  The truck is right in front of our back porch.
View from the front door.  To the left is an office, and the right, a dining room.

The kitchen is off to the right of the living room.  It will have a bank of cabinets across the back and right walls, and a big island in the center.  This is probably the room I'm most excited about.

There she is.  The front porch will look different once it's bricked.  Those openings won't be so tall and squared - they will come down quite a bit and be arched at the top.  It's fun to see it take shape.


  1. I had to go out to Stuard and drove through your new neighborhood!
