Some Progress

Despite the recent wet, windy weather, progress on the house has been coming along pretty well.  Here are some pictures I've taken over the past few weeks.

Thursday, May 12 
The basement walls are formed and we begin the 10 day wait for them to dry out.

They were able to start framing on Wednesday, May 18.  That night it stormed and rained quite a bit so they didn't work on Thursday.  Then Friday it rained a little too, so no work was done then either.  Go figure.  We've had a "drought" for months and now here comes the rain!

Sunday, May 22nd
The view from the back of the house.  The exterior walls in the basement are done.

Monday, May 23rd
The walls in the basement are framed out now and the floor trusses are in place.

This if the view from the front of the house.

Sunday, May 29th
The view from one of the kitchen windows...

And this is the latest view from the end of our driveway.
Eventhough we've built a house before, it is beyond crazy to actually walk through rooms we've only visualized on paper for the last several months.  Everything is pretty much as I imagined it would be.  I would really like to move a couple of doorways, but other than that things are looking great.

Looking great! Nice view out the kitchen window....sure beats looking at the side of your neighbor's house like I do.
