Another house update

I hope all you people affected by the Great Blizzard of 2011 are staying warm. I know you probably don’t want to hear this but we are having an unusually mild winter. In fact, it’s so mild that we haven’t had one day of delay in construction.

We went over today to see the progress and were really excited to see how much has been done in such a short time.

This is the first view we have when driving up.


The first thing we noticed was that the windows were installed.


And the roof shingles are on in the front of the house.


And the plumber has been busy.


The heating and cooling guys are working their magic too. This is the ceiling area in my nest. Kinda fun to see what’s “behind the scenes”.


The fireplace framed out.


These are the windows in the great room. That’s a covered patio outside those windows.


Back views.



I’m loving the look of my nest up there. Can’t wait for it to continue taking shape.

So, there you have it. Lots getting done.

Friday we pick out flooring, tile, carpet, and granite. I’ll try to remember to take pictures if I’m not too overwhelmed. Smile

Hugs, Anne

Wow your house is looking great! Glad there are no delays.

Your house is moving fast! I am so excited for you. The one thing I would change about my house is a sewing room. I sure do wish I sewed before I bought it.

Wow, moving right along!!! I love looking at homes in progress, seeing whats in the walls and all. Perfect winter for building a new home, at least these last two weeks. I'm not so sure about water this summer but we have time left to hopefully getting some snowpack.

House is coming along beautifully! I love the back of the house. All those windows to enjoy the view!!

Colleen said...

It looks great!!!

Loris said...

Looks like alot of great progress! Thanks for sharing the pics. I love seeing it come together.

Carol said...

Anne it's looking fantastic...that was one of my favorite times...when I could see where the rooms were and all the wires, pipes and AC/heat stuff that we never see. Oh you're going to have so much fun picking out your flooring and, fun, fun!

Stephanie said...

Congratulations on the timely progress. A rarity I'm sure. My head spins when picking out paint! Looking forward to more progress photos.

Anna said...

oh I love the progress shots...may take a detour today and drive by! I love the roof line! You are sooooo going to love it there!

Lori said...

Fantastic Anne!! Can you believe our weather?! Perfect for getting your house built!!
I'm going to have to come over and see it in person one of these days and finally meet you!

Your house is looking so nice, I can imagine you are in a hurry to fit in your new nest !
Thank you for sharing the process of construction with us. We are thinking to build our and as American houses are not built as French one, it gives me an idea of what to expect (and for timing too)

Crispy said...

WOW they are really cruising along on the house. I have a feeling your are going to be pretty dizzy after picking out the tiles, paint and much to think about!!


Darlene said...

Wow, wow and wow - they are definitely moving right along. Can't wait to see more of your nest.

Karen said...

It's looking amazing and at this point it's also fun - seeing your dreams on paper become a reality. Are you planning on where things are going now :). That nest - is awesome. Keep those pics coming


Candace said...

I think your sewing nest will be the best room in the house, Anne! Actually it all looks great - the back is so wonderfully open - and a covered patio is genius! Can't wait to see the finishes you pick!

Cindy said...

OOH,'s becoming a beauty! And that's just the outside,,,the inside is sure going to be a pleaser.


Sandy F said...

That is really looking great. I think someone knows that you really "need" to get off the hill. Have fun picking out your tile, etc. See ya on Tues.

Oh what a beautiful house under construction. I am enjoying watching the progress. We have cold and snow but the sun is out there shining in those pretty blue skies. :)
