The walls are going up!

It's amazing how much changed since yesterday.  The construction I didn't understand was a wall, being built, of course, on the floor.  Several of the outside walls are now up.

It's cold and I told the guys it was time for a chocolate break.  Take 5 is popular than Mr. Goodbar.

Standing inside the house, all of the rooms feel small.  I think it's that there's nothing in the room to give them perspective.

While I was there, they put up the wall piece that will be the entry to the basement and also the ledge wall into the great room--and it was wrong.  It was framed to the ceiling instead of as a ledge wall.  I hesitantly mentioned it, and we looked at the prints together.  Just a misunderstanding of what was written—they were already fixing it as I left.

It's amazing to watch the house taking shape.

The master bedroom is in the back corner.  The bay window/sliding glass door is already framed in, as is the transom window. Looking towards the front of the house--the open area is where the front door will go. Artistic? Yes.  Useful? No.

The diagonal board is right near the kitchen window.  This felt like my first real look into my kitchen! Looking towards the garage.  The builder's wrap is covering the front of the dining room.
