Winter Wonderland

The beauty yesterday was breath-taking! Everywhere I looked, it was a winter wonderland! Even weeds were beautiful.

On another topic, our house was being shingled yesterday as well.

I can see the end of the contruction crew's job there and the beginning of our work. Hopefully right after New Years we can start working on the inside. I can hardly wait! I know it will be a lot of work, but so worth it in the end. I walk around in the house and picture how it will all be. Such a new experience for us.

The house has a SHAPE!

This is a side view of the front of the house...the front porch!

The back of the house.

The front of the house from the north-west corner.

Front of the house and garage from the north-east corner.

This is getting REALLY exciting! The house has a SHAPE! The front middle section of the house roof will have two dormer windows on it. Totally just for looks! A ranch-style house needs dormers, I think!

December 6,2010

The house has been progressing quite nicely the last week or so. The walls are almost all up on the house. It is starting to look a little bit bigger....when it was just the basement, it looked really small. Now I picture where all my cabinets will be and it seems to be a lot of cabinets. But that will be sooo nice!
It still seems unreal that this is our house! we had been dreaming of building for so many years and now its really happening!
