::Someday:: ... we will will live here ....

The house continues to come along.  This whole process has required me to gain a level of patience I never thought was possible!  People ask daily when we will be done, and my reply, now is, "when Dan says we are done" .... and I hate that answer because it's out of my control.  We have now exceeded the time line given by the bank to build the house and now we get to pay an extension fee each month longer that we take {ugh!!!!}.
Here's an update since my last post 3 months ago {yes, I know I'm behind in blogging- way too much in life to manage these days}

Rough electrical, speaker wires, security wires and computer wires were completed.
Starting the exterior trim....
....windows trimmed ....
... insulation in progress ...
... always in the dirt ....
... he already attracts all the neighbor kids ...
... working on something ...
... drywall in progress ...
... back porch sofits in progress ...
... drywall is a mess! ....
... siding in progress ...
... cabinets delivered ... need to be stained ...
... drywall complete, textured and primed ...
... hardwood floors delivered {thanks Mom & Dad}
... siding in progress with my father in laws help {thank you!} ...
... hardwoods in progress ...
... front door installed ...


... McQueen still works ... even in the weeds ...
... hardwoods almost done ...
... garage doors installed ...
... and garage door openers and lights installed ...
... we need more help! ... we found a cheap laborer ;-) ...
... lights installed ... and they work! ...
... time to clean up .... there appears to be hands growing out of boxes ...
... up to no good ....
... siding just about done ...
...sofits done ...
... he's always good for a smile ...
... hardwoods complete, just need stain ...
We are getting close, I can see the light ... but at the same time still so much left.  ... There is definitely positive and negatives to Dan doing so much of the work himself.  Cannot wait until Move in Day! ... and no, I don't know when that will be ;-)
