Roof is almost done!

Should finish the roof today!

Almost have another side of the house finished.

Started the siding on the back porch! Can't finish until we pick out the doors.

Plumber has started and he will be ready for sinks, toilets, showers, baths on bad we don't have them picked out yet!
Things are coming right along. The builder said he will be finished in two more months if we don't hold him up...I guess he was giving us a hint to get on the stick!

Pictures By Wes

They finished the roof on the back!

Wes' picture of the roof...

More of Wes' pics..

They finished the ceiling on the back porch and they are just waiting to hang the ceiling fans.

They are suppose to finish the cieiling on the front porch. Electricians should come tomorrow and finish running the electric. The plumber came yesterday, but got sick and went home. We are suppose to be in the 100's today and through the weekend so I am guessing there won't be much work getting done! Got to love summer in the South!

And the color is....

The poor new guy on the crew got stuck sweeping the house...It looks fantastic and I am so excited that we are not going to have to clean this weekend since we are suppose to be in the 100's!

The ceiling in the Master Bedroom..

One side done...except for the painting...anyone want to volunteer...we are offering you the first to know what the color will be!

The back porch is framed and waiting for some screen!

Getting ready to start the siding!

AND THE ROOF COLOR IS (Drumroll please).....

Burnished Slate ...Can't wait for this afternoon to see how it looks!
I know the suspense was killing you on what our roof color was going to be...I know it kept us up at night..In other news...Plumber is suppose to start today and they should get a good start on the roof at the back of the house. Everything on the outside should be done by the first week in July...I heard a hint of maybe a move in by the end of September...but I am not holding my breath!

Better To See You With...Windows are in!

The new view as you drive!

Starting to frame for the backporch screen!

Hardi-plank is starting to go up!

Closer view of the house.

View from my kitchen sink.

View out the middle dormer.

The other side of the house that I never take pictures of because the grass is to tall. I guess we need to bring out the "lawn moooers" (that is cows for you city folk)!

Can't wait to see the changes that happen today! Tin goes up starting tomorrow. A friend is coming this afternoon to help finish picking out colors and making some final decisions and then I can just sit back and enjoy...

Coming..but slowly.

Getting ready to do the under pending.

My new columns...I couldn't tell the difference from the old ones.

The Hardi go around the bottom.

Looks like a prison..

The wall as you walk in the front door.

Garrett..of coarse.

Garrett in the upstairs shower that is in place.

Garrett testing the strength of the walls..

Kitchen side of the wall. If you look real close you can see Garrett sweeping...I wonder how long that will last.

The back of the house. Garrett is sitting at the picnic table.

I started my summer 4-H program today so no time to worry about a house. I guess that is good, because I have a feeling it is going to be a long slow process.
