Our house progress

We are so excited to be building a home! They started to dig our hole on August 15th and oh how we loved that hole :) 

One week later, on August 22, the foundation was poured.

Then, they didn't do anything again for two weeks (that was a long two weeks!).  They poured the cement for the garage and installed the window wells.

Then finally on Sept 17th they started framing!

Framing has gone really fast, four days later they had the basement completely framed, and the first floor started.

On Sunday, the 29th we got to go in it for the first time.  The first floor was finished but there were a few mistakes that they made, so they still have to redo those.  It was frustrating, but hear its just part of the building process and you just have to be patient :)

 Yesterday, the 30th, we went back up and they had started on the second story. Wahoo!  A few more days and the whole thing will be framed!

The only downside I have been able to find about building up here is there are a lot of spiders (black widows and tarantulas are the ones I am most afraid of!). Well, we had our first encounter with a tarantula when we went up on SUnday.  EWWWW! But, it was kinda cool to see one in person :)
