It is amazing what sheetrock can do to the inside of a house under construction. The rooms start to have a real perspective in size and shape. I am starting to visualize where all the furniture will go...we are excited.
I am standing in the kitchen looking into the living room. The dinning room.

Windows and doors were installed on Friday. The front door is a "dunnage-dummy door" (construction door) it will be replaced when the inside is complete.
We met with the cabinet man...again...we are making some adjustments to the kitchen. Moving the pantry, the oven, the stove....
All of the appliances have been shipped. Thankfully Chuck - one of the builders - is allowing us to store our appliances in his barn.
This is what Adam does for "fun" when we go to the property. He walks on the ceiling joists...it sometimes scares me!

Every time Adam and I go out to the property the house is starting to become "ours" with we want in our house. It is amazing how the house is starting to take shape...
If you were wondering...yep, I hurt the cabinet budget but, it is now repaired!
The house has been "wrapped". Soon we will have siding. Also, the roof is in the process of being felted. We have shingles and..
windows (and doors)! The windows should be installed sometime with in the week.
On Wednesday, we met with Dennis - the cabinet man - he is amazing. He left with 20 plus pictures of things I would like him to incorporate into the house...cross your fingers that I did not kill the cabinet budge...

On Saturday Adam, D, and I measured the rooms to get an idea of the final dimensions since we made some minor changes to the floor plan.
We had a road trip to Akin's Furniture in Dogtown, AL. What an adventure! The prices were amazing...you pay wholesale and no tax. We did not purchase anything but, we got some great ideas. On the way home we ate dinner at Petro's In Cedar Town...it was wonderful!
All of the windows have been cut-out!
Back of the house - that porch cannot wait to have it's first gathering!
