Just a Little Update

Here is what the front of the house looks like right now.
This is the back of the house. Love those big windows.
This is looking at the kitchen and the big island. This will be party central.
This is looking at the living room and the fireplace. Entertainment center goes on the right.
This is the water feature in the back yard. Just kidding! Penny and I went to Greer today to do an inspection and one of the lakes is over flowing into another one creating this awesome waterfall. I should have taken a video because the sound was so cool. Maybe we'll go back and do that. There are alot worse ways to spend an afternoon!

Happy Easter

All dressed up Easter afternoon and ready for church. We had a great Easter weekend at Cameron & Bethany's house. It was fun to have the little cousins together.
Here they are looking very sweet and innocent. This is just before Haylee toppled over and her head hit Tyce in the jaw and made him cry. Don't they look cute in their Easter outfits? Haylee has little green earings to match her dress. It's all about the accessories.

Settin' Trusses

This is fun stuff watching the big crane set the trusses. Penny wouldn't let me stay all day and watch, so I ran over for a few minutes and got some cool pictures.
I'll go back this afternoon and get some shots of the finished product with all of the trusses in place. It's really starting to look like a house now!

Here are the big 'ol trusses that just got delivered. It's finally dry enough to get the truck in to the lot. Can't wait for the crane to start lifting these babies on!
Here's the front porch that was just poured yesterday.
Here is the back porch where we will live in the summer. The concrete is stamped to resemble stone and is stained a dark brown. It will look really nice with the final finish on it.

Tyce loved the skid steer and I think he was trying to figure out how to start it up and move some dirt around!

Ready for Concrete

This is where Penny will be spending most of her time. It is a 6' oval tub. Her little slice of heaven!

The weather has cooperated and the ground finally dried out enough to pour the garage floor and the concrete porches. All of the outside walls are up except the garage. The top photo is looking through the garage at the front of the house. The next photo is looking at the front porch and the front door.

Movin' Along

Here's an update on the house. The outsided walls are going up and the master bedroom walls are framed. That's me chillin' in the doorway to the master bedroom. That's Penny inspecting the work (lookin' intense). The weather finally decided to cooperate for a few days and the guys really made alot of progress. We got some snow flurries today but they didn't last long and the sun came out. The trusses get delivered this week and I will get some pictures of those massive trusses being hoisted up by a crane. Cool. I love watching big machines working.
