Watching the build

Some days the kids can’t wait to get over to the new house….some days they beg me not to drive over. But most of the time they have enjoyed watching the house emerge before their eyes.

Big C, his feet are on what is planned to be our fireplace mantle beam. The big kids think it’s pretty neat that this wood is so old. I told big T (Who is fascinated with history, especially Indian history) ” Indians and settlers walked by these beams when they were trees in Pennsylvania”. Such a neat concept for them to fathom. Interestingly enough our land was an indian campground at one time. But that will be another post when I have all the information. 🙂

Watching the framers, builders and Hubs standing around the plans, discussing things.

Hauling cut ends of beams to the truck. She insisted on doing it herself. (We are keeping all the cut pieces…..some diy to come I am sure 🙂 )

I remember my parents building our home fondly. I think these little munchkins will too enjoy the memories of building our home.
