Ready for a roof

So our little house is framed and looking just great. We slept in her Saturday night. That was fun though I wish we would of gone in earlier than midnight so we could enjoy the house a little longer with the lights on! Our roof will be here this week and we're still waiting on some bids for our windows. After sleeping in it we decided to make the loft windows on either end larger. I don't really like it from the outside, (it's fine, just not as cute) but from inside, it's definitely the way to go. Yay for remodel framing!

After we get our windows we can finish all the trim and install the battens. Can't wait!

Blogging & Building

It is SO much harder to blog or social network while building and working. I wanted to keep a better blog diary of the build, but it's just not happening. After work, then building 'til dark, my energy is sapped, but in a good way. I am so thankful to be doing this and to have the support of my wife in such a "crazy" endeavor. She's a good woman. I only wish I could share it more with our readers...

Our beautiful home!

Our house is looking so good I can't stand it! Man, this is exciting! I've built so many houses and buildings for others but never for us. (Other than the occasional shed, greenhouse, chicken coop etc.) With each new board, we can see it more clearly. It is just awesome...

The walls go up

Too tired to say much but I've heard a picture is worth a thousand words :)
