Now that construction is underway I feel more anxious than I was before I think.
These photos are from the week of Thanksgiving.
On Black Friday we went to the house to meet with the electrician and I ended up adding about $1000 onto our total. Oops :)
Originally when you walked into our front door you walked into a door in front of you and a closet door on the right (living room on the left.) I thought that seemed a little closed off and cramped. I asked our builder if it would be possible to open up half of the wall later on and expose the staircase. He told me it would be better to do it now. The doorway in front of the front door leads to the attic.
My vision was to open up half the wall and have a banister and just open up that area a little. Tim asked how much it would be to open it up so I asked. I was told $1500 so I said never mind and then our builder went down to $1000 because I think he knew I really wanted it. He went over to Tim and told him it was cheaper than a divorce... he is a funny guy sometimes.
Tim is loving me in this process. He told me it needed to be done before I get any more ideas.
These photos are from this past Saturday. The roof is all shingled and the siding should be going on today. The windows and doors were put in yesterday.
I am trying to be patient, but it is very hard. I just want my own home again.
Have you ever built a house? If you could build a house what would be one thing you had to have in it?
