New Construction Begins

The Demo was almost done and we took one more tour around the house before we saw every piece of the existing frame gone.

Then the real excitement started. Tad and I have been looking at these flat drawings of our future house for so long... it was so exciting to see it start to come alive.
Boys room

Kylies room and Laundry room

Family Room
Kitchen/great room

Guest Bedroom

Framing one of my favorite rooms in the house... the huge bonus room.

Let the roofing begin. We chose to go with the presidential composition roof, color Black.

This picture was taken Feb 6 2013. Only 2 months after they started demo. So Amazing.
 Feb 6th I left to go on the famous Carnival Cruise ship that got stuck out in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico. When I came home I saw this house below and started to cry. I felt so incredibly blessed.

 Once the trim and siding were done it was time to choose a paint color. AHHHH... let the stress begin. All the decisions for the the finishes. I searched and searched and painted and painted. I finally found a house in HB that I liked and I went and asked them what their paint color was. They told me it was a custom color so they gave me a sample of it and i had it made.
The white is Dunn Edwards Whisper and the siding color is the custom color.

March 11th... outside of the house almost done.. inside of the house begins.


  1. It is beautiful house! I can't wait to see what you do to the inside. So exciting Amber!

  2. It's great that you exerted effort in capturing every progress in your home. Seeing the improvements makes you feel more excited because you'll realize that you're closer to achieving your dream home. How was it? The last photo suggests that your house is almost done, so I assume that you've moved in early this month.
