Another shot of the front of the house. It is hard to see any big change, but every day there are a few more boards!

The biggest change is the addition of stairs to the second floor. I am so glad because there was this really creepy ladder that you had to climb to get up there- I did not like it! There are still no stairs from the ground level to the first floor. They are waiting to get things more stable so it will be safe for people to be in the house.

July 24th House

I have forgotten to take the camera several weeks now so there is a big change in the way things look. All floors are up- and the joist are going in on the top floor! There still are no stairs, but I think that is a safety thing. It is so high up looking out the top floor. I would hate for anyone to fall.

This is the view from the game room window on the top floor! It is like being in a tree house!

The framing is moving along, the first floor is finished and they are putting up the joist for the second floor! I can really get a feel for rooms now, and am anxious to spend some time at the house drawing furniture in with chalk. I would like to play in the kitchen, keeping room, and masterbath. The cabinets are so important ot me so I can stuff them full! I am also thinking about my craft room so I can get Blair busy on the tables I want him to build.

Here is the front of the house!
And a shot from the side.
It is amazing how quickly this is going up. We go down every night and place furniture, and hang out in 'rooms'. Everyone has told me, and it is true, that things look really small right now. I had dreamed up lots of space, and was worried we had gotten too big. Now I can see that the house will still be cozy and we have the space where I wanted it. Big pantry, laundry, craft room!

Moving along...

The framers have been very busy. There are interior walls on the first floor now! We go to the house every night and visualize rooms. They are starting to make sense and I am getting re-excited about painting and decorating.
