I swear I did not intend to be one of those people who shares every single detail about some random life event! But the whole house construction process has been so exciting that I can’t help but share it with you all! I drive by our construction site daily and sometimes A and I go over after to work just to walk around. I’m not even kidding with y’all, we are like little kids on Christmas Eve: so stinking excited.
I mentioned last month how all it seemed we were doing was waiting and that we’d been stuck at the foundation point for what felt like forever. Maybe the construction gods heard me or maybe it’s just how construction goes, but this month has been like a time warp. Overnight our dirt lot and foundation had one floor. And then two. And then a roof! And doors and windows! And now we have plumbing and electrical and HVAC ducts all over the dang place!! There’s even a bathtub in our bathroom now!
The framing process definitely made things seem real, more so than it’s ever been leading up to this point. We’re really lucky to be so close to our construction site and oftentimes walk over after dinner to check things out. Plus we’ve gotten to bring B by a few times and let him sniff around, both literally and figuratively.
Coming up in the next month or so, we have our inspection, a pre-drywall orientation and then drywall! I think that’s when things will really start taking shape and we can start to visualize furniture placement and actually living there. Eek!! It’s so hard to believe that at the end of June, we’ll have a brand new place to call ours. But the pictures don’t lie! It’s happening.
I couldn’t help but include one last photo. All of our new windows are the perfect height for B to put his paws on the edge and survey his land. And he’s already gotten the hang of it.
