A Roof!

Our roof is on! Yay! The kids and I drove by the house yesterday around 1:30 PM and were super excited to see the roof is complete and they are prepping it for shingles! Our PM says the framers are going to finish TODAY and the windows will be delivered and installed as well. As if that weren't enough progress, the plumbers will start tomorrow! WOW!!

Here's a rearview pic of the house. There will eventually be homes built behind us (and on either side of us, of course), but for now, it's just us! We're actually the 3rd home on our street. Man, this stuff is so exciting to me!!!

For the record, I will be returning to your "regular scheduled programming" of random posts about random stuff and not just all house-related posts 100% of the time. It's just that so much progress takes place over the first few weeks that I didn't want to miss a thing. Once they start working on the inside, I have a feeling things will start to slow down a bit and I won't have quite as many posts about the house. But thanks to those of you who are following along on our journey of building our dream house! It's so much fun to see how many hits I've had and, even though the comments are few and far between (no, that's not meant to be a guilt trip!), it's nice to see that my website stats tell me I've got a lot of you keeping up with us. It means a lot! :)


  1. I love the progress updates- keep 'em coming. :)

  2. I LOVE reading all the house stuff! Brings back memories of when we built our house almost 5 years ago. Keep them coming! I look forward to the DAILY [;-)] updates.
