Filed Under: home building


 The house is coming along slowly but surely. I am really excited to share this process of building my home with you all. Its been raining lots this summer and it has delayed some of the framing, but finally its all done.  During this process my husband and I have been going through each room making any changes in sizes of closets or little things like the positioning of the vanities tubs and toilets. This is the time where you make the changes at  no added cost. But once the framing is done you really can’t make any changes unless you pay extra. It’s really amazing to see how the plumbing and electric is all pulled together.

The framing process feels somewhat real and you can start actually visualizing where everything is going to go. Even though I don’t own a golf cart its a great little room to have for storage. I’m going to use it for my bikes. There is going to be a room above the garage that will be unfinished. We have the option to finish it, but because of our budget we won’t. Possibly at a later date.

Kitchen framing

Excited about the open concept plan where you can see the living room, dining room and kitchen all in one area.

My favorite place is the master bedroom, my sanctuary where I escape to relax.

Here is the back view of my home. I’m really excited about the view! It’s a big screen porch with lots of view of the nature and there is a horse farm right behind me.

Next stage is picking out the color of the concrete flooring. Once that is picked out they will clean the floor and stain it. Cover it all up to protect it from damage. Its done early so that the stain won’t interfere with the sheet rock and painted walls.

I’ll be back with more updates and let me know whats your favorite part of this house build.
