Grandma and Grandpa Rhamey give their stamp of approval

Garrett explains to Grandma how his room is going to be.

Wesley explains to grandpa how the "great room" will look.

Grandpa and Wesley look over the living room.

Garrett being Garrett...

Mom and dad arrived last night and of coarse we ran them over to see the house. They finished the window and door frames. Today, if the rain doesn't stop them, they have a few things to finish up and they are suppose to start working on getting ready to start the second floor. We should get another electrician bid today. Daddy said, "it is built bull strong" I guess he approves.

But the house just isn't ready yet.

Interior Walls

I can't tell what this is..

Well we are getting a better look at what our house is going to look like. Somethings I really am excited about, but there are some things I am not quite sure if we made the right decision. I guess time will tell. The good news is...I have LOTS OF CLOSETS!

It's beginning to look like a house!

Garrett trying to be the second accident of the day. The first was one of the builders fell off the house...No major injury, but I am sure he is going to be sore.

The neighborhood kids..

My closet!

Our bedroom!

Interrior Walls to go up today!

Look from the front...

My picture I take "every day".

Builders working on interrior walls..

Another look..

It was like Christmas yesterday when I drove by the new heart was racing it was so exciting. It finally looks like a house. You can start to see what we did right and what we may have done wrong. However, the good news is we have started. We even had the neighborhood come to visit...The third bedroom has been called by Emmy who requested it be pink and Luke who just requested to come stay with us. It sounds like we should have built more bedrooms!

Floors and Counter Tops

Floors and Counter Tops are ready to go.


We should have a dance with the large dance floor we now have. The crew promised me walls tonight when I get home! Of coarse I have a 4-H Club Craft Class until 5:30 pm...I hope I don't get caught speeding!

We have lights, switches and plugs being installed.

More Dinner Guests...I am starting to see a trend!

Saying the blessing!

Enjoying the boys 4-H project...ribs!

Saturday night (March 28) our neices Emmy and CJ joined us for our Saturday night cook out. CJ helped pick up lots of blocks and Emmy enjoyed rolling in the dirt with Wes and Garrett.
I am hoping that our Saturday night cook out starts to become a trend and that during the construction and when it is finished we will have had lots of dinner guests!
So let me know when you are coming so we can add another plate to the table!
