A Truck with a View

by Kay~Kacey on 7/11/2012

Or some new construction updates:

view from a truck

This is how we spent our 4th of July. Sitting in the back of the truck with some ice cold beer, talking about the house and watching the sunset.

sides up

We got sides of the house and inside framing finished. (but why oh why do they park in front of the house to mess up my photos??)

back of house

Back of house…with SuperGuy most probably discussing the rocks with The Impish bay window

My office with the bay window that will have a window seat. :heart:  Right after that, they put up the trusses and the roof.

where does the island go

Here is where we spent a day dragging that piece of wood around the kitchen floor trying to decide the best place for the island so the plumber could put in the drain…

back view

View from the island…now that we’ve decided where it goes… (right after I took this, they put in the windows and exterior doors. I’ll have to update soon. Again.)

pantry window

Last, but not least, my beloved pantry window. Isn’t it cute??

Well, there it is, the promised update! This week we’re supposed to get a/c – heating ducts put in, some more plumbing, the shingles on, and maybe the siding. I will say it’s been fascinating watching the house go up. I’m sure I’m driving the builder nuts with all my questions, but he’s such a great guy, he patiently explains it all to me.

This brings back memories. We built 2 houses and now I feel ready to do another one.

Man! You’re moving quickly! Can’t wait to see it! (Home Aug. 1 – 9 – hope there’s an hour to get together.)
