The Report from days 5-17: Photos so far

I cherish Christmas. It’s the only way I make it through the long, cold winter. But I’m looking forward to the holidays being over and normal life resuming. I am, however, looking forward to decorating OUR HOUSE next year for Christmas!

Things aren’t moving quite as fast as before Christmas but we do now have an honest to gosh basement. The walls are dry, tarred and covered and the steel beams which will support the first floor are set and grouted. Because Evan and Chris were so sick before Christmas they are a bit behind on their other jobs. So work on our house is on hold for a month or so while they catch up. Until then, here are the photos of our progress so far.

Just breaking ground early in the morning.

About halfway there.

It was so cold outside, but Cora could have watched all day.
