It's fun to see the progress

This is how the house looked when we left for our ten day travels to visit the Duncan's, in Iowa, and Alaina, in Florida.

The sheetrock was up and the wholly smooth coat was finished on all the walls and ceilings. 

It's amazing to see how each step transforms the house. 

 I love how the basement is turning out.  The flow is wonderful.  The size of all the rooms seems to be just right.  It's cool and it's bright.

 I'm excited to be able to get our little kitchenette installed.  The layout has changed a little since we initially designed it with Curtis.  But I think the new layout is going to be more functional. 

I don't know how quickly it will go in because our priorities are getting the bathroom and bedrooms finished.
 I love the natural light these large windows let into the basement.  Because our backyard is so private, I don't have to rush into putting up window treatments.

It's nice and bright upstairs too.  Most of the glass is on the north side, so that will help keep the great room cooler without having to keep the window treatments closed during the hottest part of the day.

It's so fun to see the finished rooms and start to imagine how they will look once they are furnished.
