House Picture



It has been a long time since I showed you all a picture of the new house we are building. We started on this project last summer and this is where we are at now. SOOOOOOOOOO time consuming when you are doing ALL the work yourself! We started putting stone on the outside last week. Once we get a good chunk of that done I will post another picture!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather here was GORGEOUS....we worked on the house most of it but we did take some time out to spend with relatives that have flown in from Washington State! They are staying til Wednesday morning so if I haven't been around much lately it is because I am CRAZY busy!! So many other things going on too but you get the point....never enough time to get everything done!

Awesome. I am relatively new to your blog so I didnt know you were building your own home. That is so cool, I have always wanted to do that. Your home is gorgeous already, I cant wait to see it farther along.

Omg... Your house is looking terrific. Love the huge verandah/balcony out on the side and the wonderful Octagon window. A beautiful tree backdrop as well.

WOW!! I LOVE your new house!! My dad was a carpenter so I enjoy all things related to building a home since I grew up surrounded with construction information! (Along with building homes for others, he built my childhood home from the ground up himself too!) Please keep posting pictures of your progress...wish I lived closer and I'd come help you - ha! ha!

You really are busy. How do have the time to craft like you are. I just can't keep up with you;) So many great projects you've been doing, but what a gorgeous house! I love it. So beautifully tranquil looking. Can't wait to see it all. Great job to you both!
