Jordan has been at work non stop on our house! It's looking so good! Only a couple of weeks until I get to see it in person! We've been so blessed to have family and friends pitch in to help Jordan with the construction.
So, here are the pictures - be prepared to be amazed!
Second story beginnings...
Corners going up...
Lifting the last long logs
Cedar porch posts
Mudrom roof on + house roof beginning
Joists and rafters for the top story
Won't we have a lovely view from our upstairs porch??
2nd story inside
Looks quite a mansion, doesn't it?
Possibly my favorite part is the *huge* porch. I had no idea it was going to be so big. I know I plan to spend alot of summer time on that porch! :)
Putting on the metal...
Sub flooring on the first floor
In between logs in - window openings prepared
Windows!!! (remember when we found these?)
Wire mesh goes in the spaces to hold the chinking (mortar)
I LOVE the windows! I think they fit our house so perfectly. Looks like home already!
I'm so excited! I know I'm going to love living in this house Jordan has built. Not only for the beautiful design, or because it's wonderfully old fashioned, or sturdily built - but mostly because of all the time and love Jordan has put into it over the last year and a half. That is absolutely beyond price.
This may be my last post before the wedding! Only 16 days left to go...!
Prayers for Jordan and I as we prepare to begin our new life together would be so much appreciated!
Next time I'll be blogging from Tennessee....! :)
