Taking shape

It's been 10 days since my last post - we went to the site over the weekend and walked through the skeleton of our new home. As you enter - the dining room is on the left and a coat closet is on the right. Down the hall on the right is the entrance to the guest bathroom with bedrooms on either side. The bedroom on the left opens into the screen porch (not built yet). Back in the hall continuing on is the great room which will have a gas log fireplace and built-in cabinets and opens to the back deck. The kitchen, pantry and utility room are off the great room. The master bedroom and bathroom are located on the left side of the house.

Big steps

Wow, what a difference a week makes! When we last spoke with our builder he said they we're pouring the foundation last Tuesday. We didn't expect to see so much progress after that. I went out to the site the following Saturday and was amazed at what I saw. The house is beginning to take shape. Take a look at the pictures and you'll see what I mean. Remember this is the structure for the flooring. We can hardly wait to see it next week.

Crawl space - more like walk space.

Right front - bringing in utilities

Back - porches not in yet.

Left front - garage to be poured soon.

Front - porch not in yet.
