House Update 3- the one with all the progress


Its probably time for a house update seeing as the last time I talked about it we were in the middle of the golden hours of fall.  You can read that outdated update here or my even more outdated update from last March, it is interesting to see how my plans have changed.

So to summarize,

First there was a chunk of agricultural land with nothing but trees, rolling hills and a couple horses roaming it that we completely fell in love with. (see photo above)

Then we put in a driveway and brought in a water line because we decided we wanted to put a house smack dab in the middle of it.

We picked a perfect cozy area for the house, right in the middle of a forest of poplar trees.  Some  trees were cleared and the land was prepped for the eventual build, all the while we were finalizing the drawings which have been perfected to utter perfection.  Every drawer has a purpose, every need has been thought out.

before- that's where our house will go

after- now there's a spot for our house.

The foundation was poured this spring,

Now we are currently in the framing stage, while I keep busy curating ideas for lighting and flooring and finalizing appliances. I get excited every time I got out there and see the progress.
