Yesterday after work, Aidan and I headed out to see the progress. It really looks like our house now! From here you can see the beginnings of our front porch: I also took a bunch of photos inside, but now that I look at them they really look like a hot mess of 2 x 4s. Actually I don't even know if those are 2 x 4s LOL. Wood. Yes, lots of wood. Made into walls. Standing in there I could totally tell you what we were looking at, but little photos, ha a little trickier now.
I am about 90% sure I am standing in the kitchen looking at what will be the wall that has the dishwasher and such. You can see the steps in the main room going up to the kiddos' rooms.
I am standing in our living room for this. My phone only zooms out so far so it is kind of an awkward photo. Also, Leroy and his partner were upstairs with nail guns and saws so we were trying to avoid their general area, you know, for safety reasons...
This is standing in the kitchen/eat in area. I think. LOL. Somewhere in the vicinity of our kitchen at least!
Here is standing in the middle of the living room looking towards the front door:
It was really beautiful out yesterday and the views were fantastic. They really remind me why I am so excited to move out to the country (Sarah, I know that sentence made you fall out of your seat in shock. Breathe.) This is actually the view from our living room. We have some giant windows there looking out. I am so excited with how things are turning out so far.
It took me like 10 minutes to figure out what the heck I took of picture of here, but then I figured it out :) This is standing in the eat in part of the kitchen looking down the little hall. There is the garage entry, a bathroom, closet and laundry room down there.
Also I felt it was important to note the footwear I was sporting while I was hobbling around a construction site:
Oh yes. And I didn't even fall down or injure myself. Leroy had a good laugh at me out there.
So there it is. Our house as it sits. We are so excited for this. It is so amazing to go out there each week (or more often if I get my way, hehe) and see what is happening. I love that Aidan can see all of this too and understands what's happening. He asks lots of questions and wants to go out there any chance we will let him. I am just going to assume that Elin is excited too :)
