We closed on our house Friday, June 29th and broke ground on Monday, July 2. Over the last 5 1/2 weeks, we have seen incredible progress.

No, this isn't our house. ;) This is my inspiration house. I am sure they probably called the police as I stalked their house several times before remembering my zoom lens to take a picture. I really liked the "barn" roofline.
Today we worked on the back porch and deck. Some dear, hardworking friends toiled alongside us. Well, the boys hammered while the girls picked up trash and swept out the house. There is something very rewarding about putting our own sweat and muscle into our future home.
