The continued saga in building a house

Here we are a year later after starting the building of our new house. It has taken a lot of hard work, sweat, and long lonely hours of seperation between my husband and I to build this house. WE still have so much more to do before we can actually move in. I know it will be well worth building this home, but I am soooooo looking forward to it being done!

Even though these are not the latest pictures of the progress on our house, they are pictures you all have not seen. Since taking the pictures, the kitchen island is in, and the upstairs main bath is almost done.

The first pictures are of the kitchen. I am thrilled with how it is coming out. Besides the island being put in, the double ovens, dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave have all been installed. They also all work! Yayyyyyyy

Next is of the lighting that is in the entry way . I am so excited about these lights. I knew what I wanted for lighting, and searched all over the web to find the perfect lights for us! I want the inside of our home to have the feel of a log cabin. Very cozy , comfy, and welcoming! I am going to be filling our home with handmade quilts and my very own paintings of animals and woods.

The last picture is of the master bedroom. This room I am hoping will be our very first grown up bedroom! You ladies know what I mean when I say this. I want a very nice bedroom, one that we will want to be in. Not one where you look around and see hubbies junk is piled up on the dresser and in the corners. No bikes, tools, or office things allowed in this bedroom! laughing.

Hubby will take more pictures soon. He has just been so busy between building and work!

What a beautiful home you have Mysti. My home is probably about the quarter of yours ... with about a 3meters by 3 of garden.
It is a blessing and you will enjoy your time there.
hugs for you.
