Saturday the hubs and I went out on a day date. We pretty much drove around looking at houses, doors, brick, siding, and more. We started by going to a neighborhood about 15minutes away where we were told the exact house we are building was built. We were going to leave noted in the mailbox but when we pulled up the owner was outside in his truck. After talking with him a minute and telling him we would be happy to schedule a time to come back he invited us in. It was such an awesome thing to be able to see what it will look like (minus the changes we are making). They also did a more gray, white and black color scheme which was perfect! The kitchen cabinets were pretty much identical in color to what I have been thinking about but hadn't been able to find a picture of. They even had the downstairs finished! He was super helpful in telling us what he liked and what he wished they would have done different and offered for us to come back anytime!
Week 4 began with more digging, everywhere, like there literally is dirt everywhere! Pretty sure these first two are electric and water lines that run back to the house.
They poured the rest of the footers on Monday and drew the corners on the concrete. It is still so hard to get a good feel for where everything is going to be. I will be standing in the doorway and walk to the right and cannot figure if I am in Kinley's room, bathroom or spare bedroom...so confusing!
I looked over and seen this little square of concrete poured. I am assuming that is going to be our mailbox. I can't figure out what else it could be! We have a mailbox slab! LOL
We heard our contractor had a death in the family so I didn't want to bother him any more this week. After Punkin got home today from traveling for the week we went over there and there was a WHOLE LOT more block there along with a big pile of sand. I had asked our contractor on Monday when they would start laying block and he said probably next Monday! That means we will be getting basement walls in the week to come!! Really hoping the weather keeps holding out, it has been phenomenal here lately!
|Just a little game of catch me if you can around the footers!|
|That's a lot of sand!|
Praising God for being with us this far. It seems as though when we have questions or are confused about what choices to make he always puts something right in front of us and we both step back and say "wow that is exactly what we had pictured!" I am not worthy of his grace and answered prayers but yet he walks with us each step of the way!
Until next week!
