Moving right along...can't wait to move in!

The roof was finished being built today. They put the felting on and the shingles will be added soon. Here is some update pics taken earlier today. I feel like it's just coming right along! Next week we'll get the doors & windows installed, we'll get the rough-in for the plumbing, electrical and HVAC. My cabinet guy will come out and measure for our custom order and I have to narrow down my choices in the color of the exterior! What a huge choice, it's not like I can change it in the (anytime soon) future! They will also have the siding up in the next two weeks I believe. We'll get our brick mason back out to do the front brick, cultured stone on part of the front and the fireplace in the greatroom. Probably next month Steve and I (and many inlisted friends and family) will start the finish work on the interior. That is what will take the longest in the building process. I plan to finish the built-ins in the greatroom and my kitchen island. I ordered it raw wood so I can distress it just the way I like. Those extras cost so much more, and why pay it when I can do it myself?? ;)

It's hard to get a great shot of the front, there are several trees in the way from the road, so here is what you see when you pull into the driveway.

Here is the back. You'll soon see there is another set of french doors and tons of windows to the left of the other opening, they have not put up the header boards and framed that area out yet. So, the tyvek isn't cut open like the other spots.

This is a view from the greatroom into my kitchen, I can't wait to cook our first meal there. And many more to come. Please help me pray that I can cook on Christmas morning a HUGE breakfast for our family in there! (That's asking a lot! - Bradley's my little prayer warrior for this one!) The old hymn just popped into my head "Nothing, Nothing, Absolutely Nothing! Nothing is too difficult for thee..." God, was that a sign???!! :)


  1. I'll be praying with you for that! Anything is possible with God! The house looks great! Can't wait to see it someday!!!!!!!!!

  2. Look how fast it's going up! I think you'll be in for Christmas :)
