Let the building begin!

The building of the new house has begun. I am amazed at how fast this process is going, which is a good thing because I am also amazed at how 1,000 square feet can make 2 children almost intolerable! They broke ground September 5th and estimated it would take 90 days to complete. I was a little skeptical about the quality of work with a completion rate of 90 days but so far so good. Andy has been by the house almost everyday and has been documenting the process in pictures along the way.
Nothing but dirt and an empty lot~September 2
 A couple of days later~September 7~a foundation and some sticks
 A few more sticks
 Starting to look like a house on Saturday, Sept. 21
 Looking even more like a house on Monday, September 23...yes, just 2 days later!
 The roof is on and the windows, heat and air, plumbing, and electrical wiring are in!!~October 2
We are supposed to be in by December 1. At this rate, I think it could happen. It would be awesome if we could spend Christmas in our new house. I'll keep you posted. :)
