Another house update...

I don't mean to bog you down with "house" details but honestly, that's about all I know right now. I'm also really grateful to report that Shaun's dad got to come home from the hospital Wed. night and we are so thankful. He is doing so much better and that makes us all happy. So he wanted to see the progress on the house so I thought I'd share it with you all too. Hope you don't mind.
I think it is starting to look like a "farmhouse" and that is exactly what we wanted. You can see the front porch is being put on and the main construction of the house is about done except for building the garage and putting the roof on. We've had so much ice and snow that it has been to slick up there on the rafters- absolutely no need for someone to get hurt - it is not worth that.
An exciting addition this week was around back where there is going to be a small sun room with many windows. I can't wait to sit back there and watch it snow - but as for now - I wish the snow would just move on along.
A side view of the sun porch...
...and inside it.
This will be the view out the back. Snow is 'bout gone but it is still freezing....brrrrrr....

You can see the front porch coming along. I can jus' imagine sitting there on the porch swing. Hopefully there will be plenty of time for that - I sure hope so.
Now, honestly - I'm gonna go try and accomplish something - REALLY. It is a lil' project that I'm gonna share with you in a couple of days - Lord willing and the creek don't rise - hehe.
Have a beautiful week!
Cathy

Glad to hear Shaun's dad came home. I know that is a relief in many ways. I cannot imagine just how immersed in all of these house details you are. So many choices!

Cathy, just know you could never bog me down with the house pics and updates---I LOVE IT! You’ve really got me thinking about the sunroom. I have a screen porch I’ve wanted to turn into a 4 seasons room but it’s a little smaller than I would like. Love your sun room layout and it looks like high ceilings? Wonderful!

Wow looking good....I would be excited for the sun room and porch as well!

Tamara Jansen said...

It's going to be absolutely gorgeous when you're done!

I love seeing all the picures of the farmhouse. We built our house when we were 22. Yikes, we were so young(my husband had just started a construction company) and we had no idea what we really wanted at that age. This is a great time for you to build a house. Keep those pictures coming!

I love seeing the progress of your farmhouse. It is going to be a great house for your family. Look forward to seeing the inside details too. With the weather you have had back there you are fortunate to be moving along so fast. Happy to hear your FIL is improving.
