I am posting later in the week because next week I will not be posting at all. The kids and I will be heading to Cape May. Zeke will head down later in the week. This was a big week. The siding is very close to being done and the roof is now complete. The basement steps are now in, as well as all of the windows and 2 of our exterior doors. We think we may be in before school starts, which would be great. This heat this summer has been crazy! Is it me, or is the summer we picked to build the house the hottest one ever?
The room with all the windows is the kitchen/dining room. There is also a picture taken from inside of the kitchen looking into the living room. The picture of Abby shows the basement steps. The video is of Abby and Paul at home. I could not 'turn' the video to be viewed correctly, but I thought it was so cute I had to post it. Be sure to vote on the color of our front door at the bottom of this blog.

Zeke with the siding we have stained. The color of the wood is a little more red then we expected.
I have been busy staining the siding for the house. The color we chose is 'Abbey Brown.' The electrician and plumber have been busy putting in wiring and pipes. Jeff has been working on the retention basin. Zeke has begun digging a ditch for the electrical wires. In the next week we hope to have the electrical and plumbing rough-ins complete and hopefully the septic will have begun. We also hope to soon have a front porch. We are happy to be done school! The kids are happy (and so are we) that summer vacation is finally here. It's nice to finally be able to concentrate on the house. The kitchen cabinets are set to arrive any day now.

It has been a busy 2 weeks. I apologize for not posting for so long. We have been very busy with the house and the end of the school year. I also turned 30 last week!
The house is coming along beautifully! The sheathing has been completed. The frame of the kitchen/dining room is now up. The entire house has the first layer of insulation. The second layer of insulation will not be added until after the electric and plumbing has been roughed in, which should happen this week. The framing for the interior walls just went up this last week and the kids are super excited to be able to go into their rooms. Abby is planning where she wants her furntiture and Paul is busy building and destroying things.
We took a little family trip to 'Wood Heat' to pick out our wood stove and pick up some piping. Good times!
