Home Tour

OMGosh!  Our house is really coming along.  I know I've been neglectful posting photos, but between packing and packing and packing, there hasn't been much time.  By the time I sit down, it's not long before the zzzz's start!  And I haven't gotten the Win 8 version of blogger perfected yet. 

I'll start with photos from a couple days ago.  The following are mostly the garage.  Scooter inspecting his cool, HUGE garage/shop.  He had not been home for three weeks, so it was a big change.

 This is looking at where my car goes.
Scooter didn't think the mud looked wet.  He was wrong.   

Putting on the shoe that was sucked off of his foot!  lol

Looking from the back of the garage to the street.

More inspection. 
Looking outside from the family room.
This is a couple days later.  They started to side the house!  All the windows and doors are trimmed. 
(the pieces of sheetrock were NOT there when he stepped out)

These are our bedroom windows!

Seriously, there is siding on the front of the house.  Pretty bright out.  There will be rock around the bottom of the siding and around the posts.

You can see the siding a little better here.  I can hardly wait for the exterior paint!
The inside of the house is all textured and I think they start the interior paint today!!  Once the painting is done, up go the cabinets.  Oh, oh, oh!!!  I am so excited!
Hopefully, more photos tonight or tomorrow.  I think you'll be able to see the texture when it's painted.

Walls, Walls and more Walls

The sheetrock is up and they are taping!  It looks like a real house.  They also put paper on the floor and it really makes it seem so clean and ready to go. 

Here are the photos:


I tried to caption and it moved everything around.  So...I'm trying to figure this new win 8 version of blogger.  You get the idea, though! 

Until next time!

Looking Good!

I got a new laptop with Windows 8 and touch screen.  I've been trying to update this blog and have been having problems.  I'm pretty sure it's the Win 8.  Argh.  So look at the photos!  Front porch being poured and insulation going up.


The following were taken July 13.  Sheet rock is going up!  The rooms are taking shape.


There you figure out this win 8 stuff, you get the just the photos.  Maybe that's a good thing???
One last photo.  This is an owl I saw when I was leaving!  I couldn't resist and I can hardly
wait to live there full time to see and photograph the wildlife!
