House Progress Report

Back view of the house from a distance.
The trees will come down in the front.
The driveway will curve in off of the cul-de-sac.
The front porch before the steps, railing and front door are installed.

The view from the back porch.
Another view from the back porch- it looks like a treehouse, huh?
The beginning stage of the back porch.
Part of the basement.
More of the basement.

Here's the Sycamore Tan. There's more painting to do and the trim will be white.
Back view of the house.
The top level will be the back porch and the bottom will be a concrete patio. The door at the bottom leads into the basement.
The great room. There will be built-in bookcases on either side of the fireplace. There will be a mantle over the fireplace and a flat screen televison mounted over the mantle. The door on the right side of the picture leads out to the back porch.

I am still not sure that we can be done with the house by Thanksgiving, but there has been some serious progress in the last few days. They have started painting the outside of the house, the front and back porches are being built, the fireplace has been installed, the insulation is in the walls, the plumbing and electrical rough-ins are done and the drywall is being delivered tomorrow. I will keep you posted with the progress.
