Construction... {just house building talk & pics}

This is looking towards our Master bedroom, ensuite & walk-in closet.  The large opening in the wall will eventually be garden doors.

This side is the dining room (with the large opening for another set of garden doors), and in the far corner with the window will be our laundry/furnace room.  The doorway comes in from the garage into a mudroom, which will lead into the kitchen.

I'm excited to see what they get done today.  I think most of the outer walls should be up by tonight.

This is from the lakeside/front of the house, with our master bedroom closest in the picture.

The part that juts out will be our living room with expansive windows.

It's actually starting to look big now.  It looked so small when it was just the foundation.
Just think, eventually there will be another floor on top!

These are views from across the other side of the lake.  You can see that we are up a ways and will have great views when we're done.  There's a nice wide trail down to the water, where one day we will have a dock. 

Well, I don't have any crafts to share.  I've been feeling under the weather lately and just not in a crafty mood.  Hopefully soon whatever is ailing me will pass and then I can get crafty with it!

Building a new home is so exciting, I remember doing that once upon a time and remember the feeling that it was looking so small to begin with. Beautiful spot overlooking the lake, I'm sure you will love it!
