House Update

I've been promising a house update...I even pinkie promised yesterday, and you can NOT break a pinkie promise.  


I think the last house update I posted was in August!  


Makes you say "what the heck, JK?"


So, here's a house update!
The picture above is me standing in the kitchen looking back into the living room/dining room area.  The short "walls" are where my cabinets are going to go.


We have all of the electric in and the heat and air has been installed.
The inspector came today and signed off on everything!  WOOT!
The plumbing is in and we already have our bathtub and faucets in the bathroom.
This is looking into Isaiah's room.  He's so excited about it.  Excuse the mess.  We've been using it to store some thing that had to come out of the attic in the old part of the house.  


Let me tell you, this house addition stuff is hard work and it's messy.  There are days when I feel like pulling my hair out because of the dust and dirt...and the fact that NOTHING has a place right now.  However, I try to focus on the good stuff.  I know it will be all worth it in the end and the progress is really picking up...that excites me!


For instance, today we got a sidewalk and front porch poured.

I like it!  It's a mess, but it makes me happy.

I promise to update more often.  Say a prayer and cross some fingers...and toes...that we can at least be partially in by Christmas.  That's my Christmas wish!

Hope you all are having a terrific Tuesday!♥

We built our first house and I'm surprised our marriage survived it. Seriously stressful!

It will be great, though. Love the open kitchen.

It looks great so far. I'm sure you are going to LOVE being in there soon. I'm jealous. We are just fixing up our place to sell it so we can find a bigger house. Bah.

Oh wow- looks like it's coming along nicely -I bet it is difficult at times though. I hope you get your Christmas wish!

I am green over your enormous kitchen. Seriously :) Although we're actually talking addition now. Not kitchen reno yet - too much $$ - but the addition will give us the space to do it down the road, perhaps ourselves. I have my fingers and toes crossed for you too!

It's looks great. Can't wait to see it all finished. It's my dream to design my own house and have it built. I know it will never happen :{
