Stone Fireplace reveal!

After a long three weeks in the new house, we have internet and television.

We are finally moved in---although the house is far from complete. We are still "roughing it" with only a fridge, microwave, pizza pizzaz and a crockpot.


Here is an example of us roughing it the day after move in:

(before floors, obviously)
Lawn chairs and plastic tubs for furniture and Uncle Buck in the dvd player...thankfully that was only for a week.


SO many more things to update you on!

But when we left off, we were still working on the fireplace. It is finished. And more beautiful than we could have dreamed. My dad did a wonderful job and it makes it even more special that he did this for our home.




Adam think he is being classy by putting his golf trophy up there...

Move in day, which is why we look like bums.

Me and my dad with the finished product.
Scout on the first night "But, when are we going back home??" 

 Stick around, many many updates and photos coming soon to you.

  10. A new house before the year ends? What a great way to welcome 2013! From a construction site to your dream house, you definitely had a good team in building this. We all know how hard house construction is, from floor plans to the construction process itself. I'm glad you successfully went through the stress. How would you describe your experience all-in-all?
