The house is taking a real house-shape

I think today is going to be the coldest day of the year, or at least, I hope it doesn't get any colder.  It was bitterly cold and I didn't even want to get out of the car to walk around.   I can't believe the crew is working in this weatheróbut they're getting an incredible amount done, even if it is in single digits!

Driving upóthe roof is really taking shape. From the front, it looks like a houseówe can see the structure of what it will look like when done. From the other side.  The framing for the garage access door is in, but it's got wrap covering it.

The framing for the kitchen broom closet has been fixed so it is really a closet now. 

Kitchen window.  This window might or might not be the right size and it might or might not be in the right location.  Details to come. Study

Looking towards the front door.  The barrel ceiling is here. The breakfast nook bay area  

Lower level: there be stairs!

It used to say "Basement: there be stairs", but I'm trying to train myself to think of it as a lower level and not a basement!

Looking down the basement stairs. The rec room.  The windows in here are going to be great! The room shown in the back won't be finished.

Is this is a beam?  It is a mega-beam? Stan Peering out of Bethy's bedroom window.
