January 3 - 9, 2011

WOW! We actually have building going on... shock and awe. After 4 years of waiting, we have to pinch ourselves when it comes to believing that this project is truly happening...

This angle shows our bedroom - we will have a fireplace on the outside wall.

They GUTTED the whole old stone house this week....

BARE FIRST FLOOR - this is where our kitchen and dining room will be.

Starting to take out the upstairs floor - this is where the kids rooms will be.

Looking out from upstairs... the curve will be the screened porch.

We've got basement walls!

And a sub floor goes in for the first floor addition.

On Saturday we took the girls out to see the progress...

Elle and Sophie

Checking out the master bedroom view.

The stone house is completely gutted - it looks HUGE!

For perspective... Carey in the basement.

After checking it all out some mistakes have been made already - walls aren't tall enough so they will have to be re-done this week. Hopefully it won't hold up progress too much . We are working on door and window picks right now and spent time choosing fireplaces this weekend. So many decisions to make! Will post more updates soon...
