We have basement windows now- and they have starting putting siding up on the ends of the house.
The idea for the bar in the pub.

They started on the front porch, all of the boards will be hammered by hand and they use copper flashing against the house.

Installed the Kitchen & Laundry room floor today- it looks great, will take a close up of the Kitchen when we can walk on it.

View from the master bath.

Countertops were installed yesterday, look really good. Today they dropped the sink in, will get a picture of that tomorrow.

Last week the slab was finally poured, (the day it was suppose to be poured the people never showed up so we got a different company to come out the next day.) there were quite a few uneven spots at first, but after they cut the slab for expansion and contraction there is only one spot that is still uneven that they have to come back and fix.

The pattern for the dog shower downstairs in the pub basement. We have just enough tile so keep your fingers crossed for us.

They have already framed the upstairs and sheet rocked, there will be a door at the top of the stairs (on the right of this picture).

The stairs leading to the attic.

The basement up to the main floor.

This is the master bath and our shower pattern laid out on the floor. There will eventually be two glass french doors right where the fan is, the shower is to the right.

No more holes in the ceiling- they repaired the drywall where the house came in two parts.

This is the layout for the upstairs guest bathroom floor, we had a whole box of tile break and this was the only way I could make it work with 1 tile to spare (the ones that broke will have to be cut to fill in the triangles.

The view from the pub door to the left.

I finally got to walk up the stairs for the first time today instead of a ladder- that was a great improvement. The basement bathroom was framed in yesterday.

The House is Set...

Well it was a great day, the house was set without any problems and it is huge!! The crew started about 6 this morning and we were able to walk through at 2- Joseph had to work, but he will get to see it tomorrow when the HVAC and plummer guys are there. It was amazing to literally watch them raise the roof...

Pictures above are the attic, master bath, and the view from the main road. There will be porches going on both the front and back of the house, so we will keep you updated with photos.

A Present

So our house arrives all wrapped up.. the perfect birthday present, these aren't the greatest photos because it was super dark, but it gives you an idea, there will be a whole bunch more tomorrow!

Action... Movie Time

Action... So the new software finally showed up and I was finally able to get our footage off of the camcorder to make a video. We have a basement and a house to put on top of it now! The house showed up this evening so I will post some photos of that as well, but here is a little video tour of where we started until now. They set the house tomorrow so there will be some more pics then!
