Maybe a better title for this post would have been "Buildin' on Up" instead of "Movin' on Up". There's been a whole lot of activity going on at our lot recently and every day as I drive by (yes, I detour so that I can check it out) there seems to be something new completed.
Matt and I made a trip to Omaha on Tuesday for official house business. We picked out everything from windows, interior/exterior doors, banisters, toilets, faucets....you get the point. It was a very productive day! Luckily Matt and I have very similar tastes when it comes to this sort of thing. It makes the process a whole heck of a lot easier.
When we drove by the house on Tuesday we were thrilled to see that the ground floor was starting to take shape. This part of the building process goes SO quickly and it's fun to watch the bones of our future home being constructed.
By Friday evening there had been some major changes. After work it's always a race to beat the setting sun, but it was just light enough for me to snap a few pictures.
This is the front view of the house. Going from left to right you can see the front-facing single stall garage, followed by the side-facing double stall. There will be big windows cut into that big mass of wood eventually. The first opening as you move beyond the garage is the front door, followed by a window opening to our office. The second floor is well on it's way and with another week of "mild" January temperatures I'm sure that we'll have a framed roof before you know it!
This week we're planning another trip to Omaha to check out flooring, shower tile, countertops and cabinets. So many decisions, but I'm loving every minute of it!
