Wow! I have a lot to catch up on! I took a little weekend off at the campground to try and relax (which was a fail) and I came back and so much had been done!

They put the main level floor on 



The also put walls on the outside of the basement



They put up ALL the walls in the basement (just the frames as of right not, can't drywall till we have a roof) This is the view when you walk in the big door from our basement. (they took off that sideways board,  in the picture above)



And now they are wiring the basement! The most boring part, Haha!



They have two of our upper level walls up today! at the end of the day I will be sure to post pictures of how far they got!

It is around 3200sq. ft. It is the biggest house we have ever had! My mom is becoming overwhelmed on how big it seems! She doesn't want such a big house to clean! Haha

It must be exciting to see your house being built! I've lived in the same house my whole life (21 years) and it was brand new back then. Now it's old and wearing down. I would love to see my own house being built, that would be neat! Maybe one day I will! =D

Oh and BTW, you live in a gorgeous area!! I bet the bunnies are going to love being outside in that green, green grass!! (if you let them outside?)

Oh they LOVE it! I have a very safe outdoor pen that I built last year but added a lot to it this year! I am going to make a post about it as soon as I get the video to upload!

I wish I lived there! haha my grass is dull and dying in my backyard but Rascal likes to dig in the dirt apparently so it's okay for him. I put the pen for the bunnies half on grass and half on the dirt/dead grass. I guess the sprinklers don't reach that spot LOL Poor grass. =(

Awww, I'm soo jealous! I used to live Western NY (a year and 2 months ago) and the scenery was always really beautiful with lots of outdoors and since I've moved to Pittsburgh I don't see anything but city life. Sometimes I miss not being able to lay in the grass with a nice book all comfortable with no noise but nature -- but I really enjoy the city too! And because of Pittsburgh I have my bunbuns so I can't be unhappy. We live in a condo that I love but I can't wait until we get older and sell this place and HOPEFULLY get a house with a yard! (He totally doesn't want a yard because he hates yard work!)

Wooot! I am so excited! By tomorrow my room will be framed in! They only finished one half of the house though, which is pretty much my parents room/closet/bathroom! Their closet is bigger then my room! Haha!  Now for the pictures!

All the upper walls are up but the one on top of the "jut out" not sure if that's what you call it!
View from the back of the house.

 
View from front of the house!

Garage (located just to the left of the other picture)

The laundry room on the left, my parents closet is behind it. The stairs and then my parents room on the right and their bathroom to the right of that ( but you can't see the bathroom in this picture!).


Dining room on the other end of the house


And tonight's sunset.

THis thread is called "Building with bunnies" So I thought I should give you a long overdue update on them!

They have been doing great! We had a struggle with finding hay that they would actually eat (why are bunnies so picky) but have now found the perfect kind! I think they are handling this better then me actually! I am SO stressed out that I can't be organized in that room that other things aren't organized that I just have to blind myself from it (I guess its my OCD showing in me). Its a storage room and half the stuff is ours so I have to realize its just temporary! I want to organize it all SO BAD! haha! I also feel like the bunnies don't have enough space! They have a 2x3 condo (which is to small for even 1 rabbit to live in, not to mention 2!) with a 4x6 pen attached so the main level is a 4x8! I know that's not terribly small but my bunnies (and me) are used to being free range in a whole room! 

They also have to be in a pen at all times so exercise is hard. For awhile they would go a week at a time with out any time out of their pen because its always bad weather outside or I am gone! I felt awful! So, the other day I used all of my NIC cubes to make another 3ft, pen the size of an xpen to create an area for them to run around in. Here it is!

The whole area you see in this picture is about is about an 8x10ft. which is about the same size as my old room, but they only get to play when they are supervised in the evenings.


If you turn around there is more pen.


and more pen when you turn the corner.


It wouldn't bbother me so much if the bunnies would run around when I let them out! But they just sit and stare out side of the pen, wishing they could crawl through those bins just one more time! ( they have escaped and it is hard to get them when they hid in between the bins) and then they furiously grab the bars with their teeth and shake the whole pen trying to move it! It helps if I block their view with a towel ( like in the first picture) but all their other bunny blankets are currently dirty.

Sigh....what to do what to do!

awww well it's only temporary that's what you have to keep thinking of. I know when I had my two bunnies bonding in the one x-pen they didn't have as much room as I'd like them to but I just had to think it was temporary and they would be in bunny paradise soon. lol

When is the house supposed to be done so you can move in and the bunnies can settle in?

Wow, when you and your sister are moved out your parents will have SO much room!!

Our house is 1800 something sq ft, but it's just Hubby and I, so it works out. We are gonna have to stop getting more pets though, or it'll get too crammed! At least you won't have that problem!

My grandparents have a pretty good sized house too and its was great for when their kids and grand kids came up! their was a room for everyone! So maybe that's what she was thinking! idk!
