The lot after they first staked it.
The hole they dug for the foundation.
The footings with the forms for the rest of the foundation.
The foundation with backfill.
The first floor goes up. They delivered the walls already put together in sections, so they go up fast.
The second floor also was put up that day.
Shingles, windows and doors.
Now it has the brick and the first layer of the stucco facade. (I skipped the picture with the weather wrapping, I hope nobody minds.)
Exterior with the color. I think I need to take another exterior picture because now it has most of the soffets and the garage door as well as the exterior lights. (The garage door is still white so I am guessing that they will be painting that soon.)
Ok, now just a couple of interior pictures. The kitchen is my favorite part.
Nyla is working on crawling and can now do it at the house now that they have laid the carpet.

Here the foundation has been poured and they are laying the plumbing before they pour the floor. (Our house will not have a basement because of the water table, so the plumbing has to be buried in the ground before they pour the floor)
The next time we came back they had already poured the floor and were framing the main floor. The first floor was framed in one day.
The next day they finished framing the second floor and now we are only waiting on the roof and the stairs for the framing to be complete.
This if looking from the back of the house to the front. You can see the small entry room as well as the archway to the main room. Through the framed in walls you can see out the garage. The diagonal 2x4 is where the stairs will be(of course the lack of stairs didn't keep me from climbing up and looking around the second floor.)
This is the view looking east out of our bathroom window. It will be nice to see sunrises on lazy weekend mornings.

Many of you know that JJ and I have contracted to build a house in NSL. After weeks of thinking, more weeks of designing, a scary day of signing and then more weeks of waiting for a permit, we are finally ready to dig.
This is what our lot looks like today. I can't believe how a few stakes and some spray paint can make me so happy.
More pictures to come as the house grows, target completion date is July and then we are gladly taking visitors. :-)
