House Update: Is It Done Yet? {Sadly, No}

Have I blogged at all about us building a house? No? {grin} I'm just a wee bit impatient to be in our new dwellings! Things are moving along nicely, and it's starting to come together to look like a house! We've had lots of wet weather, but we appear to still be on track for moving in about 2 1/2 months.

So what's been going on? Well, let me just fill you in!

Stucco has been on for a few weeks and rock is going on as we speak. I have been blown away by the work that goes into getting these rocks onto the house. 2 men have been at it for over a week and are maybe halfway done? They pick up a rock look at it, look at the house to see where it might fit and then hammer and chisel away at it until it fits in its designated spot. Very time consuming and physically taxing!

Day 1 of stone work

Day 4 of stone work - working on the arch

Day 8 - arch is done and front is getting close!
One side is almost complete as well and the back was started.

Our garage doors were also installed last week.

Sheet rock was put up a few weeks ago and texture was added this week. Trim work and framing was also started and most of the doors have been installed. That was the biggest surprise to me. We actually switched our doors about 2 or 3 weeks ago, and I'm so glad we did. Brent and the builder designed our closet layout and that has been started as well.

Trent's room {we think} with doors! I LOVE them!

Coming up...painting should start next week, cabinets will be ready in 2 weeks, and then flooring will be around that time too! Brent and I need to go pick granite and backsplashes, and he wants to re-look at tile and maybe change it in our bathroom. So it's all coming along!!
