Our New House...

Well, after alot of planning and planning...the house building is FINALLY underway! It seemed like it would never get started...but it is in full force now. Everyone keeps asking me to post pictures, and I figured this would be the easiest way to do it. Plus it gets me back into blogging again. :) I will post a bunch of pictures here, so you can see the progress, and then keep it going. I am going to be asking for ALOT of advice on things as we are at DECISION time...and some decisions should be group decisions, don't ya think?! :) So...lets get started!

So, here is Tony, as we are trying to decide where we want to put our house. As you can see it is across the road from where we are now. The house between the two tree's is where we are now.


First step...making a driveway.






Then...this is the beginning of it all!





Here is where the pictures might get a bit out of order.  And, alot with Ryan in them.  He is documenting the building process in his class, so I will take the pictures from there.  It is a good idea of what is going on.


The crawl space floor.  It ends up with a ton of rooms...but you have to duck to get into each one.


Walls are up...
1st floor...


Kitchen/Living Room

2nd floor is happening!

Entry way stairs...I love them!!  Later I will post what it will look like...

View from the back of the house...

Roof!!




There she is!  Isn't she getting pretty?!  We are so excited!  Now I have to run to go talk to the builder...Will be back!
