It’s crazy to think about all that has happened in the past two weeks! We went from having form boards to….well, you’ll see.
While we were at Catalyst, we got a call saying that they were about to pour our concrete. We’d been out there on Tuesday (almost two weeks ago) and it looked like this:
When we got back from Catalyst, we went to see our house and it looked like this:
We had a slab! We also had a “SOLD” sign in our yard!
When we went back on Monday evening, they had the walls all marked out, and the lumber had been delivered.
It was so much fun to walk through and picture where everything was going to be. Michael “pictured” a little too much.
So these were the boards to build our house that we saw on Monday…
…And THIS was our house on Wednesday:
AAAHHH! We couldn’t believe it! We though that they might have the walls up, but we weren’t expecting all of this at all!
To say we were excited is a huge understatement. Here’s the back of our house:
I took this from far away so you could see how long our backyard is.
All of the extra supporting boards were still up, so we walked through the walls to get from one room to another.
So that was Wednesday…
On Saturday (yesterday), we drove up to find this:
YAY! It’s ready to have the shingles and bricks put on before too long! We’re really excited about our front porch–I think it’s going to be one of our favorite parts of our house. The little pieces of wood are going to be replaced with cedar beams, and the back will have brick and slurry.
When we walked in, we saw that they had removed all of the extra boards. This is on the back side of our living room. We’re SO excited about the big windows! The door leads to our back porch.
Here you can see our breakfast nook and through the walls to our bedroom.
On the other side of the living room are two bedrooms and our office (which could be a 4th bedroom). The middle room and office are shown here:
The back/side of our house:
I found this little weed flower while I was taking pictures, and decided to get creative.
Our house will be finished before we know it!
They should be doing the electrical and plumbing this next week. We’ll keep you updated!
We want to write some Bible verses on some of the boards before the sheetrock goes up. Do you have any suggestions?
