Pretty as a picture

Yeah!! They started framing our house today. Cameron called this afternoon to tell us that the first floor was mostly done. They think they will have a roof on it by Monday, as long as the weather stays nice.

I waited (rather impatiently) for Nate to get home and then we headed out there to take a look. We were so jazzed to see it finally look like more than a hole in the ground; it looks like a house!! It suddenly seems very, very real and we were both grinning from ear to ear the whole time.

Standing in the driveway, looking at the garage. All that wood is the rest of our framing kit.

That's a lot of wood!

Standing in the garage looking toward the great room and kitchen.

Standing in the foyer looking at the living room.

Standing in the kitchen looking into the great room. The fireplace will be in the left-hand corner. Nate is checking out the view from all the windows. This room is very open and bright. I love all the windows!

This is a terrible picture of me (showcasing the fireplace) but I told Leah I would post a pic of the top I found to go with these green shorts. (PS. If anyone knows where I can find a skinny white belt to cinch the top, please let me know).

Can't stop smiling!!

We finally have our builder meeting scheduled (you know, the one that's supposed to happen BEFORE the house gets started!). It took three or four tries, but barring disaster, we'll finally get to sit down with Park next Monday and get the time line for the rest of the house.

If you want to see more pictures check us out on flickr:
