Door, Windows, Siding & Roof

Lots of progress has been made, I am just slow at posting photos...

We have siding, a (shingled) roof, windows and exterior door. The inside is all insulated and the electrical work is complete. Drywall is here and installation will start ASAP.

In other news, I am now 33 weeks, 4 days pregnant so a sweet baby boy's birth day will be upon us before we know it. We are so excited!

I have been super busy with lots of custom orders lately. Here is one large one I finished recently - 14 "School Days" paper bag albums. It has been good to be busy because it keeps my mind off some of the stress of this adding on. Have I mentioned how tired I am of mud-clad boots in & out of my house??? I'll be so glad when the guys are done here!

We have been busy figuring out paint colors, flooring options, lighting, etc, etc. So many decisions - not good for someone bad at making decisions!

We are BURIED in snow. We have somewhere around ?18-20 inches of snow on the ground. Laura is on her third snow day in the last week. Even the base is closed today so Jeremy is home also.

Stay warm & I'll be back soon with drywall photos.

Up & Up

Things are REALLY moving along! The projected finish date is February 18th-ish. (Just because we know there will likely be a few more hold-ups.)

We now have an upstairs and a roof. They will be starting shingles and siding in the next day or two. The windows and doors have arrived. Our bathtub is in the bathroom. Drywall will start shortly also.

The guys worked until late tonight so the only photos we could get were in the dark but hopefully it will help you get an idea of what's going on! We are really excited about our upstairs "bonus room". I love the peaked ceiling. It will have closets along the whole short wall for plenty of storage. This will be the space we have waited a long time for - a place for the girls to hang out & have friends over, etc.
