house update

I am way behind on these updates.  They are finishing the sheet rock this week and then it's on to flooring and cabinets.  I am really hoping we can get in in February before I go back to work.  Fingers crossed!
from the front right corner, garage in foreground

same angle, framing

same angle, roofing is being started

view from the back
this is our favorite.  we will have to bring in more dirt to complete the back yard and pool

siding (will be white) is almost done now

view as you are driving in
due to elevation issues, our front yard is small but back yard will be where we hang out
we are very isolated and have ten acres to ourselves

and the crown jewel - the back porch
it runs almost the length of the house and is 14 feet deep
we have one sitting area with bolts for a swing, dining will be in the space above
past that is the outdoor kitchen complete with bar
there is a pool room and full bath past that
outdoor fireplace with more seating as well
the steps to the pool will be located in that corner
when i get overwhelmed with all we have going on, i picture being out here with an adult beverage and a happy baby after the craziness of masters is over.  it'll be here before we know it!
building a house is insane.  we plan to be here forever so i wouldn't want to have anyone else make the decisions but it is never-ending.  thank goodness brad and i are pretty much on the same page with everything.  we have tried to stay in front of most of the decisions so as not to hold up progress, especially since the next few weeks will be crazy.
we are so happy with the progress so far and cannot wait to get in!!
