More Progress!

Progress is being made!  The house is being built by high school students in our regional building trades program.  They work under the guidance of a teacher who is also a professional contractor.  He hires other professionals to guide the students in the various aspects of construction.  Considering the fact that students work only 2 hours a day, the house is coming along rather quickly.  We've had a couple of weather delays to contend with.  (Hope the potential superstorm fizzles as have the last couple of other potential threats the last few years!)

Here's the front wall.  There will be double windows on either side of the front door.

And from the inside looking out the front door:

Turning around and looking out what will be a sliding door out the back from the dining area to a deck.

This is a view of what will be the master bedroom - also with a slider out to a deck!

And this the garage foundation being poured.  We will be able to walk into a mudroom from the garage, and then into the kitchen.  A nice change from 30 years of walking across the driveway to the garage --- no more soaking wet trips with grocery bags!

The roof trusses are coming Nov. 14 so that will probably be the next batch of pics!

I'm looking forward most to a more compactly and efficiently organized kitchen and being able to get those groceries in from the garage without having to haul them up some rather large steps. It's interesting how some things become so much more important as you get older, isn't it?

How exciting!
