Today lots is being done on the house.
Yesterday, I went to work with Tom, so I didn't get to see what they got done, but they finished this side of the garage. I'm also amazed I was able to get everybody to look and smile at the camera at the same time! AMAZING!
Here's the first wall of our dining room!
It's the wall between the screened porch and dining room.
I can't believe how exciting it is to see each wall come up and this house come together.
They are also putting up the roof on the girls room.
Yesterday they put on the roof on the other side of their room.
We peeked at Dan working on the wall from Tommy's bedroom.
Then I took the kids down to splash around in the creek while I took a few more pictures.
Then we headed back home for lunch.
After lunch we headed back out. They had done quite a bit more on the roof of the girls room.
They also have the beams up for the Screened Porch.
These guys can really crank out some work! I love seeing the porch take shape.
Can you guess where else the kids wanted to go?
I think we'll end up spending many days playing outside this summer. I couldn't drag the kids away from the creek!
Dan is connecting the beams on the last side of the screened porch/dining room wall.
Daryl is adding a second header beam to make it strong.
They've also built the ceiling up so we can have a drop ceiling in our dining room. I can't wait to see what it will look like.

I remembered that the wall from the dining room to the screened porch is supposed to be long enough for our china hutch so I finally had to force the kids back inside to measure it. I also measured the piano so I could tell them how long the wall in the kitchen needed to be.
I ran back down to talk to Dan and Daryl, so we measured the walls and figured out how to move the doorway over a few more inches to make room for the china hutch. Apparently there was supposed to be a header beam (non-supportive) to separate the dining room from the kitchen, but I'm ok without it, so we're scootching the door over where the beam would have been.
I also got to take a few pictures of what our screened porch will look like.
Then I ran upstairs to watch the builders upstairs put on the roof for the dormers.
I also got in a quick peek of the dining room all finished up. Well, minus the ceiling, but that should come tomorrow.
Anyway, this is where we've finished at for today. :)
