You may remember, a little over three weeks ago we drove by and found that they started on the foundation molds!
This is how it looked yesterday when we drove by. The whole house is framed and the tresses and outside are being finished!
Its always fun to get photo updates from my mom when she's out for her run . . .
Or from our future neighbors as they take pictures from their master bedroom!
It was pretty amazing that the entire first and nearly most of the second floor were all framed in less than a weeks time. We are still waiting for the subfloor to be put in for the upstairs and for the stairs to get up there to be put in so that we can walk through the upstairs and really feel how big the second story will be. We've only walked through a similar house as the one we are building and have never seen the second story, so we are pretty excited about that!
Meanwhile we are finding ourselves daily making decisions on decor or items for the house. Last week's lighting appointment didn't go really stellar so we have decided to purchase and pick out all our own lighting, which leads to spending hours in different light stores staring at hundreds of different chandeliers, vanity lights, and pendants. While it's definitely not the easiest route, I'm excited to be able to pick out exactly what I want. Here's a picture of the dining room light I picked out this weekend!
What do you think?
I'm sure we are in store for many more decisions light paint colors and overall design of all the rooms, but I am so excited to be making this house our home. My Aunt and Uncle are visiting this weekend from Chicago and I cannot wait to show them our new home . . . even if it's far from finished! Our builder told us he hopes to have the windows in this week and start the roof in the next few days. It's all happening so fast, and while I know the whole process will really start to slow down soon, I'm loving being able to see so much progress right now!
