Moving right along

Today we met with the plumber to go over every sink, tub, and drain. It is so exciting to really think about how each room is going to look. I feel like we are getting closer- even though we are still a long way away! One thing I did that is a huge help to me...I got a sketch book (a notebook would work) and I sketched how each wall in each room will look when we move in. This is hard in some places, but a general idea is good. Then when I walk through with the plumber and the electrician, I have already thought about each cabinet with sink, light, plug...It makes the guess work go away!

The king and his castle! David is posing for the picture.

Today they worked on inside stairs, putting sheeting on the back of the house, and finishing the porch.

Mom and Dad came to see the house for the first time! It was fun going thru the house like giving a tour. It helped me look at it with different eyes. I see that I need to raise the door height, and open a door that I had closed off. Not too many changes!

House is moving along. Last week I found the perfect counter top for my kitchen. I found it at G&L Marble in Birmingham. It was on hold for someone else, and when they decided they didn't want it, It became mine!!! The colors are perfect, and it is a good granite that has movement- which I like.

The house is moving along- faster than I can keep up with the pictures! This shot is from last week. Today they are finishing up the sheeting on the roof. David opted for solar plywood to help keep the attic cooler! Cool!

See what I mean about going up quickly- the very next day...

Blair climbed to the top of the attic and took this picture. You can see into Jones Valley from up there! David wants to put a window in the attic so he can look out!? Whatever!

The rafters are quickly going on! The poor guys are on the top of the house on the hottest days we have had this summer. I don't know if they agree, but this part seems to go fast, so maybe they won't bake for long.
