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!

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.

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.

We had quite the set up.
Sun, shade, and a great wind block.
The kids were dying to go swimming eventhough the water was frigid. They didn't seem to mind at all!
It was a great day! Really gets me excited for all of our camping trips this summer.

It's pretty much over Cruz's head now.
The boys were following their dad around looking for a flag that marked where the water well will go.
Emmy and a few of the kids came out. They had a ball throwing dirt and running, running, running.
I found this little stinker hiding behind a dirt pile. Eating dirt of course!
