Our sweet neighbors

(Myk, Cindy, Yeison, Esther, and Abraham)

Well apartment life has its ups and downs. He is one of our ups! Our precious hispanic neighbors. Brent and I have both said that we want to keep the relationship going once we have moved. By the spanish is slowly getting better. I can now speak on a 5 year old level (around Christmas it was 4!)

Looking good!

Well I know it has been a few weeks, but only a little has changed on the outside and inside. We now have windows and a doors as well as electrical wires on the inside and plumbing lines. Not only that, but roofers have been shingling the roof. Hopefully this coming week the brick layers will be at the house bricking. We will just have to see how the weather behaves! So far things are running smoothly and building is becoming fun because we see so many changes and we get to start picking out what we want on the inside. Hopefully in the next few weeks, I will start showing pictures from the inside.

One last picture!

The building has started!

I am so excited that we officially have walls and a roof. It has been a fast process because each day the builders work, there is something new and exciting to see. On the other hand, it has rained a lot over the last few weeks. In the meantime, I have ordered and recieved a cool farmhouse sink for the kitchen and a free-standing pedistal bathtub for my bathroom. Believe it or not, I ordered the sink off of ebay and saved a ton of money on it and I ordered the tub from Vintage Tub and Bath. I also saved a ton ordering directly from the manufacturer. We have also ordered our showers for the masterbath and the girls bathroom. We decided to go with acryllic showers because they are nice and easy to keep clean. I originally wanted a tile shower, but decised I wanted more of a lighter, clean look for the master bath.
