The framers got three of the trusses up today. We were not sure how they were going to look when they were up. We could not be happier.

It was such an exciting day.




I think this is my favorite shot today.


We went over tonight after the framers (Artists with old beams, I will call them) were gone.

My husband and I looked up into these beautiful old beam trusses and he said “I can’t believe this is our home”. Which was exactly what I was thinking.
We don’t want a show home….we want a home to raise our wild little brood. We wanted character and warmth. These old beams, they have so much character and warmth……they are amazing.

We are a little in awe.

  1. That really is inspired – what a great idea (and beautiful to boot). Can’t wait to see what it looks like from the inside! Would have loved some exposed beams but house probably too small đŸ˜¦

    • Oh no, we have some beautiful 3×5 old rafter beams that we are going to put in our screened in porch. They would look beautiful in any size house. (If you like that style). And with your amazing views, it would be stunning. :).
