It's Coming Along

Well, it has been 2 weeks since we last updated you on the house. A lot has taken place and it is so exciting. I never knew I could get so excited about wood, screws and plumbing! 

In the last 2 weeks our house has gone from one or two exterior walls to having almost everything on the outside done, including siding, windows and doors. The inside is framed out, the HVAC is almost complete and the plumbing is done. This week they will run electrical and then we go in for our pre-drywall inspection before we head to vacation.  What will be so fun is to come back from vacation and see what has been done.

This whole process has been so great and fun to go through. Matt always said he wanted to build a house because he thought it would be fun. I didn't place much value in those words since he thinks a lot of things are "fun" that I don't think are. This has been! We have been very blessed to work with a great company and a great guy named Micah, who is always looking out for us. 

So enjoy the latest on the house. We will see you in a few weeks. I will probably be blogging this week, but it won't be house related...you have to tune in and check it out.

Another thought on those windows... your boys are probably old enough to know better, but...

When we were growing up, my step-brother (now), who was 5 or 6 at the time, decided to make a swimming pool in his room. He pulled a hose through his basement window and had about 4" in his room before his dad figured out what was going on and opened his bedroom door, flooding the rest of the basement as well.

Thanks a lot Betsey!! While I am horrified at the thought, Matt is sitting here saying, "that's awesome!" Go figure!
