I better get out the Halloween decorations

They put in insulation this week.

We got a lovely septic tank.

The driveway, sidewalk and porch have been framed up for concrete.

And all the drywall is up. It really looks like a house now. Trick or treat here we come!!!

It's starting to look like a house

I am beginning to think we might be in by Halloween at this rate!!!

Friday they poured the basement floor and the garage floor. And then if rained for the first time in months on Saturday.

I hope this is the last time I ever see water in my basement!!!
Monday they framed out all the exterior and interior walls. You can actually see where the rooms are going to be.
Today they put up the trusses and some of the plywood for the roof and finished the interior framing.

They also put up our covered back porch!!! Yipee!!! I am going to enjoy sitting out there in the evening.

I think the roof will be done by the end of the week.

Stacy, I added a link to a country living website I think you might like. You can get the magazine for free.

Titan "The Country Dog"

Titan sure is enjoying country life. There is a pond on each side of Dave's parents' house. As soon as he gets off the leash he makes a mad dash to the water. He loves to fetch his tennis ball in one pond and there are lots of frogs to chase in the other!!!

Don't Fall In

Things are moving faster than we had expected. They were supposed to start digging around September 6th, however we showed up the other day and saw this.

At this rate maybe we will be in by my birthday. Happy Birthday to me!!!

We went and picked out all the stuff on Thursday night. That was fun, however it is really hard to pick stuff when you only have a sample. I am a little nervous about the kitchen choices. Hopefully they turn out okay. There is another house they are building that has the same counters and cabinets so I think we are going to go check that out to make sure we like it.

I added a link to the builders website so you can see what it will look like when it is done. We made some changes but this is the basic floorplan.
