Hello! It’s been another little bit. For whatever reason, this is just not my season of blogging, but, no worries, I’ll pop in now and again until the urge to get back into it full force hits.
Part of my absence, of course, is due to a busy schedule. Just like every summer (despite my best intentions!), I’ve been a wee bit busy since school let out, and it’s not going to slow up for at least another couple of weeks. I’ve been working like crazy on my new project which I should (if everything goes right) be able to share with you guys in about two weeks.
Dad and I are leaving for Colorado tomorrow to run. We’ve got a race on Saturday, and we decided to turn it into a mini-vacation so we’ll be out enjoying the mountains for a few days. You guys know how I feel about the mountains so I’m stoked to get into the high country. Summer has hit full force in our neck of the woods, and I’m already over all things to do with humidity.
The biggest thing we’ve got going is our house build. It is moving along at a pretty nice clip, and I have some updated photos to share with you guys today.
Dry wall and texture is done, and you’re looking at the living room from the kitchen. That little piece sticking out at the bottom left will be a counter top.
This is our bedroom, and this wall is actually going to be floor to ceiling chestnut. We got this really beautiful reclaimed wood that came from a barn in Pennsylvania built in the 1890s. I’m really excited about this part of house, and I’m anxious to see it put up.
Both of these are from the back of the house. The top one is the garage, and the bottom is our awesome back porch! This thing is going to be so cool, and we’re anticipating so much time out here.
The front! The siding hasn’t gone up on this side yet, but it will also be the green that’s one the back with a little bit of rock…..
……which you see here. They started the rock yesterday, and it really is turning out nice.
The build is moving so fast. We heard yesterday that the cabinets will be put in on Thursday. I told John not to send me pictures while I’m gone-I want to just get back next week and see it!
So that’s what’s going on around here! I’ll be back next week with a race report and a house update!
