Windows and doors oh my!

Yep, that is right, we now not only have a fully shingled roof but also windows and doors!!  I love being able to see a little bit of progress each week.  Our stairs were also in our kitchen so my hope is that during my next visit they will also be installed meaning I won't have to climb a ladder to check out the progress on the second floor.  :-)  With only a little over two months left to go I am hopeful that the house will be completed on time.  I have heard from other people that once a house gets started Richcraft (out builder) is pretty quick in finishing.

Avery is now fourteen months old

Unbelievably Avery has reach 14 months old.  She is now crawling like a pro, pulling her self up and is able to walk around by holding onto furniture.  She is also getting much more talkative even though all that comes out is either "ba", "da" or some combination of the two. It is quite fun to hear her talk and try to figure out what exactly she is trying to say.  Needless to say there is never a dull moment with Avery around.

Framing has begun!!

After waiting what seemed like forever our house is now almost completely framed.  Our house went from being just a floor to framed in less than a week.  I can't wait until my next visit now to see how much more progress has been made.  Also on a good note all of the structural changes we requested seem to have been made which was great to see.  Now on to the pictures...

 

First floor added.
