Even MORE progress has been made on the house, and I know that's kinda the whole idea behind BUILDING A HOUSE but I still find it amazing and miraculous!
It probably doesn't hurt that this particular progress has quickly made it actually look like a REAL HOUSE, and to a visual person (like myself) this has quite an impact.
September 4th: The framing starts to go up!
September 5th: They bring out a HUGE CRANE to put up the roof trusses. The drama! The excitement!
September 13th: The ROOF goes up, and suddenly - MAGICALLY - it looks like a real house to me.
September 15th: Now there are even WINDOWS! GASP!
Ok, look, I apologize for the crazy excitement and all the exclamation points, but seriously this is how this whole building process feels to me. If it wouldn't be super-duper creepy, I'd just stand in my backyard the whole time with my mouth open, staring at whatever the construction crew is doing that day in wide-eyed wonder.
As it is, I've so far managed to rein it in to just staring out of my window every once in a while and taking a few pictures when I let the dogs out.
