A continuation of the home building blogs…
With this series, I’ll keep you updated as we go with insight into the process, and maybe help you make a decision if you’re on the fence about building! Read here for the previous post in this series.
STICKS AND STONES WILL… BUILD MY DREAM HOME!
Since we last talked… the concrete jungle has become a stick palace… we’re moving up in the world people!
Once the foundation cured (slowest weeks everrr), the framing FLEW up. I understand the “hurry up and wait” aspect of home building more and more each stage of this process. First, it looked so strange… what were those weird small pieces?? (Hint: the main floor flooring/ceiling of the basement level.) After that point though, it really began to look like a house!
WAIT… IT’S GREEN??
As someone who obviously has never built a home before, it was interesting (and mind boggling) to see each stage go up. Who knew the inside of a house was green?! Heyyyyyy Irish pride over here.
SNEAKING INTO OUR OWN HOME
Once the roof and windows/etc. were on, it felt a bit like sneaking into an abandoned house whenever we went by to check on the progress. Whereas before we just breezed right in, now we had to creep in through the garage doors… but it’s our house! Haha, it was still a funny feeling to get past.
The best part was seeing the inside begin to really take shape. Walking through the “rooms” and envisioning what we were going to do with them, where we’d put furniture, etc. It’s as if the light at the end of the tunnel is now visible!
THE NEXT STEP… DESIGN DRAMA
Did I mention HGTV before?? Because now I know why people use design teams… HOLY HARD WORK BATMAN!
