A glimmer of light!!!

Okay, so maybe I am being a little dramatic by giving this post the title a glimmer of light but really in the past few days Zach and I have been given a little "light at the end of the tunnel" about our house that reaffirms the fact that we will not be living in a small room in my sisters house forever... so I guess my power of positive thinking is working...I will keep that up. But really we have seen a great deal of progress in just a short period of time... and yes I know there will be more slow times to come but...I am going to keep hoping for pretty weather and a good attitude by all involved! Here are a few pictures of the progress!

Okay so we felt as if we stayed at this point forever..ya know just the sold sign and the land...but really we were at this point for probably about a month and then the broke ground (which I don't have a picture of) but then we were at that point in the process for a while because of all the "winter weather" we had but then they moved on to the next picture.

They began our foundation probably on Monday of February 21st. This part of the process moved more quickly than expected! Also, when we looked at the slab we were like whoa! our house is really small, our builder quickly informed us that seeing the slab normally always makes you loose perspective and proportion...he was right because the next few pictures after the foundation pictures happened and it helped us gain our perspective back!

This is a picture of where our little front porch will be! We are really excited about it!

Just a side view.

Then to my surprise one day on the way to work they were framing it up!  This was on Wednesday

Still on Wednesday, Feb. 23rd

And more framing Thursday Feb. 24th. The bottom floor is almost completed.

Another view with the garage in sight.

Side view to see the whole thing!     

So needless to say we are pretty pumped! And because of all this recent activity I have had several projects that I have been working on for the inside of the house. But the biggest project we have been working on is about the outside of the house and it is the EXTERIOR PAINT COLOR! We think we have chosen the color and this will be in future posts! Hope your week has been eventful and that you have enjoyed being outside in the beautiful weather! Keep hoping for it because Zach and I really are!
