Our New House Progress

I would be lying if I said this was a nice relaxing summer, free of projects.  This has been a rough summer.  And I feel exhausted.  I have barely blogged because I don’t have the energy to.  However, I thought I’d check in with you guys and share with you some of the progress being made on our house.

(To see our floor plan, see this post.)

They dug our basement, and that was fun to watch.

Then they poured the footings and the foundation.

From here, the framing went really quickly.

My favorite feature during framing was seeing the grocery pass through door from the garage to the pantry.  We call it the Costco Door.

We’re a lot farther along in the construction process than this post suggests.  I just didn’t want to dump it all in one post, because that would be a lot!  There have definitely been hiccups along the way.  Up til this point things went relatively smooth.  The next post I’ll talk more about builder issues we faced.

For those of you who have asked, our house is said to be done on October 15th.

Also, in case you missed it: I had another contributor post on All Things Thrifty last week.  Check it out!
