Windows and doors and railings! Oh, my!

They delivered on their promise... we have windows and doors. So shiny and reflective!!

I love the little square ones. These are in our laundry room... so cute!

Our front door...

When I walked around the back of the house, I got another surprise... our railings on the porch are up! I am in love... see the high ceiling?

Our back door...

I think someone has been four-wheelin' in our back yard. Hmmm...

Green wrapping for Christmas

We are getting ready for windows and siding to be installed, so the house is all wrapped up in a green wrapper now. They timed it just right for the holidays.

The roof shingles are piled up in the front and the windows are leaning up against the wall in the garage. They told us to come back tomorrow... the windows should all be installed. Exciting!

They installed new lamp posts on our street too. Aren't they cute?!

Framed on Lasilla!

Holy cow! Andrew went to check on the house today and... umm... it's a HOUSE!! Last week it was concrete in the dirt, this week it's a house!! I feel like we missed a whole step.

It doesn't look so small anymore...

Look! They even built our stairs!!

Here's a look at the back of the house. We can't wait to enjoy our screened-in porch. No more flies in our barbecue!!

Dry Foundation

Today was the grand opening of the new clubhouse, so we took the tour. It is beautiful!

It feels like a lodge with a fireplace and cushy furniture and balconies overlooking the pool. My favorite part was the fitness center on the first floor with brand new equipment. Andrew's favorite part was the game room on the top floor with a pool table, poker tables and a fooseball table.

We swung by our lot on the way out to find that our foundation is all dry.

It seems kind of small with no walls.

Can you believe that all this wood is going to be our house?

Andrew is standing in our garage. Can't you sense his excitement?

Pre-construction Meeting

Today we met with our Field Manager, Chris, for our "pre-construction meeting." He showed us all the blueprints of the house and also verified all our options. He is a really nice guy and made us feel totally comfortable about the stressful process we are about to experience. After our meeting, he brought us down to the lot where the workers were leveling our foundation.
