On April 5, 2013, I stopped by the house to check on the progress and I was so excited to see that they had installed our cabinets, framed our stair rail, and were working on the tile. But I was SOO bummed because I couldn't go in to check on it, as there was a big crew in there working and I had all the kids in the car. I didn't want to leave them, so I just snuck in the garage and snapped this photo. It was all I could see. And I was DYING!
So, on April 6, 2013 we woke up early, threw some clothes on the kids and drove over to see the house!! I couldn't have been more excited! They installed the cabinets, painted, put in the tile, and framed out the stair case. It was finally starting to look like a house!
Here's Aiden's Room. He loves his window!:
On April 8, 2013 we stopped by in the morning and they were putting the stone and brick on our house. Holy Moly excitement! We were super surprised because we thought they would paint the house BEFORE putting the stone on. But obviously they did it in reverse.
Everything was moving so quickly and we weren't expecting to see much else on the outside of the house, but on April 11, 2013 Mr. Howard drove past in the morning and saw them installing our rain gutters!
Later in the evening, we put the babies to bed and asked my mom if she'd listen for them while we went and spent some time looking at the house. We wanted to see if they had installed the granite (they hadn't). Here was the house later that evening when the rain ducts were all installed:
Here's Connor standing at our door:
I have a million things to show you inside the house, but seeing as though this post already contains 2.1 million photos, I'm going to have to do a part 2. I also have to show you the turned island legs we bought. They arrived a few days ago!
