Drywall is hung!

We can not believe that we finally have our drywall hung and now it's on to getting it finished!  It looks so great and really gives the house a more completed look.  It also allows us to imagine our stuff in the space.  We feel so blessed.  One thing that we felt really called to do was heed God's commandments found in Dueteronomy 6:6-9:

"These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates."

So we did that and found scripture to write on frames for every room in the house.  Many of them are our prayers for what those rooms will guide us to do in life!   So below are posted photos of the drywall and some scripture writings as well.

Electrical, Plumbing, Roofing and Windows Oh My!

It has been another crazy couple of weeks!  In the last 2 weeks all of the framing and roof framing were finished, our roof shingles were put on, house was wrapped, windows were installed, electrical was ran, plumbing was ran, baths were installed, and the heating and cooling is almost completely ran!  It's been really neat to see all of the things happening so fast.  We know that a lot of our outside trim is delivered and ready to be installed and we are also guessing we are getting close to drywall and siding time here in the next couple of weeks once all of the inspections are done!

It is so great to really see some progress happening and getting us closer to move in time!  Here are a few photos from the last 2 weeks!
