New Home Progress

Susan at A Southern Daydreamer is the gracious hostess for Outdoor Wednesday. If you'd like to join in, all you need do is to post pictures of anything that that might be found outdoors.

Two months ago we moved from South Florida, our home for over forty-five years. We're currently living in a rental while our new home is being built. We're close enough that we go "visit" every day.

This is a shot taken last week after the plumbing (the white pipes) was put into place. Then, the vapor barrier was laid down.

Last Thursday, we were thrilled to see that it had been poured! This shows our front entrance.

Monday, we were so excited to see the men beginning to lay blocks!

Yesterday morning, this shot was taken. The builder called us in the afternoon to report that all the blocks were laid. It's beginning to look like a house!

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly they can build a house these days.

I am happy for you.

I know the heart has to beating faster every time you go and see how far they have come...we will be looking for Christmas decoration there.

LV said...

Sally, what would I do without you. If I had checked it like you told me once before this would not have happened again. I did not and I was very tired last night after a long weekend trip. Thank you again. Hang in there. As you know ,when your house is all finished you will think it is worth all the wait and problems that may arise.

Knitty said...

If this is exciting for us to read about and watch, I can only imagine what you and your husband must be feeling!

Diane of Crafty Passions said...

A new house how lucky you are.
And to be able to watch it being built daily must be fun. And of course make you anxious to move in !
Take care

Loren said...

blessings and thanks for's fun watching it go up

Charlotte said...

Great Sally, I'm glad to hear this news. I have been intending to ask you if they are getting on with building your house. I know you're excited about it. I hope you have better internet access when you get there. I remember when we had the old AOL dial-up connection and a slow computer. It was maddening.
Happy O.W.

Cindy said...

Wonderful! Although it seems to me you just moved a few weeks ago, it must be a long two months for you.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Yeah Rah, Sally... I think you may have a new home sometime!!!!! That reminds me SO much of my son and daughter-in-law's home in Texas. They built their home ---and the beginnings looks so similar to yours.

I know you are getting excited.

Barbara H. said...

It will be so neat to watch the progress!

Hi Sally, hurray, your new home is under way. If you are like we were, you will be there very often. The homes around your lot are lovely. Enjoy the process.

How exciting. It must be fun to be able to visit and see the daily progress. How long will it be before you house is finished? I bet you are anxious.


Beautiful Pear Tree Lane said...

OH! Sally, I am so excited for you both, seeing this reminds me of when we built our home ten years ago, and how exciting it was to see, from day to day, it being transformed into this beautiful structure that we would later call home.
I am so looking forward to going along with you on this adventure.

Warren Baldwin said...

A new home! That is exciting!

I like the comment you left to my article "Lasting and Happy" on Family Fountain and would like to quote you in a follow up post. Would that be all right? You can check the blog later and let me know. Thanks!
