Dream Craft House update Day 15-17

Day 15 was this past Thursday (6-18-09) and there was only two workers the whole week. They finished painting the outside and added the trim to the inside and finished out the windows. The lights were added on Friday and touch-ups made to the sheetrock.

Scarlett likes the porch but she didn't want to wave at me. She's pre-teen and just wants to be cool!

Scarlett and I went swimming after I got off work today. I have to say the water was a warm 90 degrees. That's what you get on a southern summer day! It was still nice. We played in the water by me pulling Scarlett as she floated on a tube. I guess I was the horse....

I can't believe my cute little porch is here. It's just soooo cute! I love it! Scarlett loves it too. We had to sit on the porch and test it out today. It faces the west and the trees manage to block the sun so I expect it to be pleasant to sit there while we read or cook out. It measures four feet out from the house and 15 feet left to right. The house is 21.5' long with an eight foot ceiling. Dark green metal roofing will go on the porch to match the roof on the house. Won't that be so cute?

Scarlett helped get the old craft room torn down. It's been taking days to pack up everything. Tonight we took the rolling carts out from under the L-shaped work table and cleaned it off. It's going to be a doozie to take apart... I think. Now that it's cleaned off I'm thinking I may be able to take it apart. Some great friends that I used to work with put it together for me and for some reason I didn't watch.
The laminate floor is possibly going down tomorrow and hopefully the roof on the porch. Then all that's left to do are two gutters and some underpinning, the sink and some shelves to be built. What a wonderful journey. The last time I had anything to do with a new building... I was six years old. My parents built a house when I was in the first grade. It was so exciting to see what was accomplished every day.
Okay... I hope this post wasn't too long winded and I sure hope you are enjoying the journey with me. I can't wait to show you the inside after it gets filled up with the fun stuff. Whoo-hoo! I am truly grateful and so fortunate to have such a blessed life. (Thanks babe!)
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I really appreciate it.
Have a great week and come back and sit a spell when you can.
