Guys -- after waiting three months for building to start, it is AMAZING how fast things move once they get going.
Yesterday, I gave you a sneak peek at our slab:
Two days after that picture was taken, we saw this:
WHOA! That looks like a HOUSE! (insert choirs singing here)
Let's walk through the first floor, shall we?
This is the door from the garage:
|Garage door (where box of nails is); beyond that is the mudroom.|
Here's the Hub's office:
And the family room looking into the kitchen:
Here's a view of my pantry:
And the breakfast nook:
|It had just rained before I took these, thus the water.|
Here's a shot of the dining room:
And the front porch:
As we visit, we are writing Scripture on the studs as a symbolic (and literal) way to follow this command:
"Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth." - Deuteronomy 11:18-21Here's the first verse we put up (on garage door):
Remember how I said in a previous post that we're taking pics of the boys in/near the fireplace each time we go? Well, D-bug wasn't with us this time, so Beebee got to go it alone...
We also let him write his name on the kitchen window:
On the home selling front -- we had a surprise showing this past Sunday. That makes NINE showings so far. Now, if one of these sweet families would purchase our home, that'd be great. :)
Thanks for sharing our adventure with us! And, please pray that our current house sells in time for us to be able to get this new one we're building. We know whatever happens will be God's best for us, but I'll be honest ... we will be pretty heartbroken if we don't get this one. I'm already imagining life there and decorating in my head (and on Pinterest). Trying not to count my chickens before they are even in the eggs, but it's hard not to get caught up in the excitement sometimes, you know?
Thanks for the prayers and encouragement! Y'all are all ROCKSTARS!
