Not About Monkey

I know this is surprising to most of you... but I do have more going on in my life than how cute Monkey is (not anything that is more important though).  One of the "other things" in my life is the building of our house.  Yes, there is an actual structure.  I wanted to share with you the process as it unfolds.

This is our lot before anything happened - about one month ago. (Ignore the box in the lower right hand corner - this is a screen shot from google maps since we didn't take a picture of our lot before)

It was hard to see how anything was supposed to happen here.  But, 4 weeks ago, this is what we saw:

Our lot had been cleared.  And then we went away to DC and came home to this:

Then, this past Sunday, we had a walk-through of our house (well, Brian and I walked through and Monkey made it known to everyone how unhappy he was that he wasn't allowe to walk through as well).  And here is what our house looks like now:

This is our living room. The photo is taken from the inside looking out our front window.

This is one side of our house.  The elevated deck is actually a screened in porch right off of our living room.

The part covered in the paper is our dining room (downstairs, though French doors), kitchen (window over my sink), and slab patio.  Upstairs you see the windows of our master bedroom.  And you can kind of see how we already have shingles on our roof.

Apparently we didn't take that many pictures of our current phase but we'll keep on shooting.  The goal is that by this weekend we will have siding and all the inside stuff will start.  We still have a completion date of the middle of January so cross your fingers because it's time to leave the apartment and to stop paying to store the rest of our furniture.
