Progress in the form of walls
In his defense, it's been really hot in these parts. I can't blame him for wanting to do something--anything--to keep the sun at bay.
We've been making quite a bit of progress on the house, but Hubby's been torn in more than one direction. Not only does he have house stuff to care for, he has farm stuff that requires his attention...plus his regular job. Pray for him. I get worried that he takes on too much.
At this point, Hubby started asking me if the house was looking bigger to me now. He was increasingly frustrated to hear that my answer was still no.
I wish I had pictures to show you the number of concrete trucks that came through to pour the walls, but I'm at a loss. I can tell you that my little barker consistently warned me that someone was outside. Good thing they weren't trying to rob us, because I'm pretty sure one concrete truck could demolish this trailer.
On another note, look at my man. Isn't he really impressive? If you don't think so, it's because you're not looking at that picture closely enough. He's a magnificent display of health and vitality. Makes me jealous.
This weekend, Hubby and a variety of help will be digging in the plumbing and getting that stuff situated so the next group of concrete guys can come in and pour a floor. After that, we welcome the carpenters and an actual look at the house.
I'm excited, but apprehensive. Looking at a plan on paper is a different animal than seeing it live and close up. Again, Chris keeps telling me how big this space is. Again, my spatial problem keeps me from seeing it. I know we won't be disappointed, but I'm a little stunted at this point, I guess.
One more picture at the bottom of the whole she-bang (which is a little difficult to get a picture of considering it's all in the ground), then stay tuned. More updates to come.
