Thursday: The House

Heading out to Storrs, we decided to take the highway so we could time it as well as estimate mileage.  We had an appointment with our banker for ten, which went well.  Then heading out to the construction site, I couldn't wait to see what had been done since I last saw it!

Preparing leaching fields

Dining Room Slider (facing South)

Walkout Finished Basement (facing West)

My new stone walls

Garage & Kitchen (facing East)


Almost HOME

  As you can see, they have made substantial progress.  In fact, wait until you see what they've done inside!

Knowing that we were coming, our builder made arrangements for the "tile guy" to be there as well as the "floor guy" so we picked out our tile, grout and hardwood.  The cabinets were, as you can see, already delivered and the granite is on "reserve."

Before you know it, it will be move in day!

How exciting! I love the stone wall and the color of your house. It feels like I'm helping you build and move.

it is beautiful and I like all the woods i see around it, living space outside is important to me with lots of trees.

Wow!! It's a house already. I'm sure it didn't seem fast to you but it seems to be just flying along from where I sit. Can you feel that tingle of excitement?

You are sure going to have a lovely home there. I'm really liking the way it's turning out. Computer problems have me playing catchup. It's good to be reading your blog again.
