House

The tar paper is applied over the plywood and nailed down with tin caps that look like half dollars on the roof. This picture is so much better understood if you click on it.




Yesterday, the windows were beginning to be installed, but I didn't get a shot of that.

Good morning Sally, I did enlarge your photo and the house is coming right along. I really like the design. It looks large. How exciting it is to build a new home.

Thanks for your comment on the entertainment center and basket. I am still thrilled to look at it each day myself. My dh wanted to put the BIG TV on the wall. UGH!

Have a happy day Sally.

Hugs, Jeanne

It's looking better and better! And I really like those round tin caps. Seems a shame to cover that up - you'd be the only people on the block with a polka dot roof!

It'll be Home before we know it! (I'm sure it will feel a little longer for you) :)

I hope you are in by Thanksgiving!
Looking good. Cindy

Mary said...

They are really moving along. It must feel great to know that the end is in sight.

Clif said...

Looks great. I really like the way they do the roof. Here in Scottsdale they hold the paper down with strips of wood. They rot and curl up and come loose. Not good!

bj said...

o Sally...I can't believe how fast this is going up...it is going to be so beautiful. I've never, even once in my entire long life, lived in a brand new house. It is going to be so heavenly.

I've been bad at visiting..repainting a couple of rooms and this ole gray mare ain't what she used to be...I can't find enuf hours in the day to get it all done...

Charli and me said...

Good afternoon Sally, I feel excitement in the air :>) They are really starting to move on the house. If they keep going at this rate I think you will be in for Thanksgiving. I know how excited you must be. I hope your day is going well.
