The Elevations for our house.


I am not sure why this says North Elevation? This is the front of the house and it is actually South facing.


Our Master is in the background with the two french doors.


Now this says South Elevation but it is North facing???
We took the left double screen doors out of the screened in porch here, I just didn’t feel like we needed that many doors.


Met with a roofer today. We are pretty sure we are going to go with a standing seam galvalume.

Our really good friends came over today and took a tour of the house. It was pretty exciting to walk them around. And it was fun to walk through the barns and show my girlfriend all the crazy old things in the barns that just might end up in the house. :). The six wild kids running around were pretty fun to watch too.

Thanks for reading 🙂 H.

Merry Christmas

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas…..my first Christmas with this blog. 🙂

May your day be Merry and peaceful.


The pitch of the two story is up. I am so happy with the way it’s looking.

My hubs is cooking, the boys are playing with new Lego and the girls are playing with their new dolls. Oh and big C got a puppy. A border Collie…. He is the happiest little 9 year old boy ever. I figured it’s better to house break her this year in this house, rather than next year in the new house.

I am guessing sheep will be part of our new year.

Love H 🙂


We started framing……

Little T is standing in the doorway from the carport, that is our mudroom she is in. And the rectangle to the right is the laundry room.

And then we hit a bit of weather……….


We usually get a little bit of snow every year here. But this stayed for a week. We actually had four days of no school due to ice . The kids got to go sledding, something they had never gotten the chance to do here before . It was a fun week . Lots of breaking ice for animals, cold toes and fingers, hot chocolate and soup.

But the weather warmed back up and the guys got back to work.

The two story part….. The kids bedrooms on the right….girls upstairs…..boys downstairs.

Windows looking out from the kids bedrooms.

And how it looks right now. I can’t wait until the stairs get in so I can see that view from the upstairs windows.

On the left is mudroom, laundry room, pantry, stairwell, bathroom and boys bathrooms.
Our master is on the right…..and the great room now has one wall. (The rather large 16 footer that connects the two sections). The house is now starting to look very big . Bigger than I imagined. :). It is one thing to see a 16 foot wall on a drawing….it is a whole other experience to see it standing in front of you. But it is very exciting….I can’t believe this is going to be our home!

Merry Almost Christmas….. :). H
