WOW! I have a LOT to catch up on! I have been pretty busy this week with school starting, getting foster bunnies, and visiting my sister.

The view from the front of the house. As you can tell they have done a lot! All the walls are up and they are now working on the roof! Once the roof is done, they can start dry walling! 


View from back of the house. (there isn't really a wall on the left side yet because it will be mostly windows.)

Now for my room! I showed my already, but here is the attic room right above it! It is bigger then the lower room! Hopefully you can tell where it is, it is right above the latter!

I think I may have to steal the blueprints for that house and build one for myself

Omg, what a beautiful place! The view off that dock alone is amazing. Can I live in your yard in a tent? ;-)

I can't wait to see how it looks after you guys move in and decorate.

I kept forgetting to post pictures... sorry guys!

They finished putting plywood on the roof.


Today they are putting on the shingles (How would you like to stand on that ladder?)!


My mom asks me today. "How do you like the color of the shingles?" I was like "I don't know" Truth is, When I am looking at a house I don't even notice the shingle color! LOL It took my Mom and Dad awhile to pick them out though! Haha!

The are also making the kitchen wall today! (I didn't even know we were going to have one) Now that I see it, Our kitchen is huge! I was like, Oh my goodness! You can't really tell from this picture so I will have to get a better one later.

They are building the floors and walls for my upstairs bedroom right now! I don't have a picture of it yet because I didn't really want to crawl up there and get in their way, but I will have pictures soon! I am so excited! Windows and doors come on Monday!

Most of the time they put a piece of plywood down on the horizontal ladder so they can walk on it safely It's quite handy!

Monkeybun: No the other one isn't a latter its some sort of thing made for walking on but it is still scary looking! haha!

My upstairs room! They added the walls and the floors! (you can see our cat Emmet! haha! Don't worry! We got him down!)


The view from the other end of the room! ( LOL my moms in the picture! haha!)


And this is the hole where the stairs will be. It will be pull down stairs so when I am not using it I can pull it up and walk on top. if that makes since. I am a little worried that when I open it it might hit a bunny down below... Not sure how I am going to do that yet.


Here is a better view of the kitchen.... kind of....
View from above

Another view from ground level

And our fire place. This will just a gas one. Our wood stove will be in the basement.

Could you build a little fence around where the stairs fall mocha? Or nic cube temporarily. That way you don't have to worry about squishing them and they don't get scared by it either. The house looks fantastic. I remember how scary it is to walk through an unfinished house thought and how my parents obsessed over little details like shingle colors. lol

This is so cool! I love looking at the pictures from when my parents built their house before I was born. Especially the before and after pictures of what is now the yard- they live in the woods and had to clear trees in order to build.

The Windows, Doors, and Gas fireplace are in! We are still waiting for the upstairs living room windows to go in though. Here is some pictures!
Basement Windows


Basement living room french doors and windows.

Upstairs door (It will lead onto a deck)

Upstairs gas fireplace. They didn't put it together so all of the pieces are still rapped up inside.

 
Last night we had a neighbor over for diner. Randomly the lights start flickering, we look out over the lake and see some storm clouds! Me and my sister were excited for a good thunder storm and I wanted the electricity to go out! (don't ask me why, but I just think its fun!) Of coarse not for a whole day or anything, but for maybe a hour or two. Anyways, back to the story. So the sky turns dark quickly and soon their was rain and hail. My Dad was hoping the hail didn't get any bigger and crash through one of our brand new windows. Luckily it was just pea sized. The lightning was AMAZING and me and my sister took front row seats in my grandparents living room in front of their big windows! Sadly the storm didn't last long though. Today we found out that the storm was actually a gustnado and power was out for awhile in town. I hadn't ever heard of a gustnado but apparently it can be like a tornado with out the swirling clouds. If you type in "gustnado" on google you can find out more about them. Pretty interesting. Probably shouldn't have been by the windows....

My Grandma is very outdoorsy. She loves to hunt, garden, walk, hike, canoe, kayak, watch birds, swim, and just sit outside and drink coffee! Yesterday she tells me "Don't tell your mom, but when you guys move out I am going to miss the smell of your bunnies!" Of coarse she meant the hay and litter not the actual bunnies. My mom heard what she said and laughed about just putting a bale of hay in her basement. All'n'all Things are going pretty well!

That's hysterical what your grandma said! Whenever we go to the pet store and get there hay -- we always end up with a car that smells like hay and it's sooooooooo good. It sits in the closet though so only the closet ever smells like hay now. I grew up on a farm with horses and such so I LOVEEEE the smell of hay.

Of coarse this post wouldn't be complete without a beautiful look at the fall colors across the lake!



Best news yet, they think the whole house will be done in about 6 weeks! YAY!
