the house

We have finally started to see some progress on our house! This has felt like such a long process and we are not even nearly complete.

After leveling the ground they poured the footings and prepped to pour the foundation.

The framing has started!

The living room window. We love the view out our back windows, minus the power line.

The fireplace. The boys love going out to the house to play around. Caleb always finds scrap wood and pretends to fix things. Ethan calls it his "bat cave."

We finally have a second story.

The view into the kitchen and dining area.

Front view of the house. They will still be putting a dormer over the study window so hopefully that evens out the look of the house. Honestly, the outside of this house isn't our favorite but the inside layout was exactly what we wanted.

They even started on the siding this weekend. 

We are really excited to see this house start coming together. We are also really anxious and nervous to see our design choices.

We have been doing lots of projects around my Dad's house to get it ready to sell. The biggest project was replacing a lot of the old flooring with a new laminate/wood flooring. The boys have been helping, mostly with the cleaning and earning money in hopes to buy a Batman robot. They have a little ways to go but hopefully by the end of spring they will have saved enough.
