Playing Catch-up

I've been pretty bad about posting pictures lately, so I wanted to get caught up. As I mentioned in a previous post (okay MANY posts) the big delay on starting construction was putting the road in. So although its just some asphalt, it was a huge deal to me once it was paved.

Here are a couple of shots from before the road was paved.

This one is looking down the hill to our right.

This is the culdesac road across the street from us.

Here's what it looks like now!

Looking down the hill.
The culdesac road. (BTW the houses on this street are starting at $20K more than our base price!!!  They are great lots!)

Here's our house all staked out.  It looks soooooooooooo small!  I should've zoomed in...not a great shot.

Here's me standing where I'll be spending countless hours over the years...the kitchen.

Okay, I know this isn't exciting, but here's our first delivery!  That's the $850 egress window for the basement that was the "upgrade" that really wasn't an upgrade.  That $850 dollars could have bought me my extra morning room windows ;(
Fast forward a couple of weeks.  Here's the foundation.  They are not great pictures either.  There are these huge mounds of dirt/rocks at the front of our house that were preventing me from getting great shots.  But, you get the idea.  I'm really liking the brick!

And finally, here's the rest of the house!
We were told framing would start today and it did!  I'm so excited!  We are right on target now.  These next couple of weeks are going to be so exciting.  And the best part?  Tomorrow is my last day of work until 2011 so I'll have lots of daylight opportunities for pictures!


  1. KM.....Great Pics!!!! How often are you gonna visit the site?

  2. India, I'm a bit obsessed. Can you tell? While there's progress to see on the outside I'll probably go every other day or so. I know its a bit much, but I have plans for a photo display to show the house's progress, so I want to get as many pictures as I can. When the outside is finished, I won't go by as often. Maybe once a week. It is so real now. I can barely contain my excitment!
