Moving on in....

No, not us. Construction. The outside is done....

And is Gary ever glad the plumbing is done so we can fill in the trench for the well (you can see him here shovelling sand into the trench). Every time it rained in the last eight weeks it filled in and he had to dig it out again...accompanied, I am sure, by a few choice words and phrases.

I took a few pics of the outside now that it is done. They were taken at night, but turned out pretty well. My mom's cousin lives at the end of our road. I ran into her the other day, and she admitted that when she first saw the house she thought it was so odd looking and ugly. Then we put the verandah on, and she fell in love...said it is just like the Walton's. I love it...we just won't have that many kids....lol

Heidi,
It looks so nice!
I love the color.
Who's designing your kitchen?
I'm glad you are looking at all this coming to an end soon. Any chance you'll be able to be in by Christmas?

Thanks...we had originally chosen "Brownstone" but then at the last minute decided on the colour and we are glad we did. :) Kent's is doing our kitchen too...it is quite a big space, and we did get designs and estimates from other places, but we really liked theirs the best and it was the best price. Shaker style in white-washed birch...

Not in by Christmas, but hopefully soon after...actually we had to order the kitchen cabinets last week to have them by Christmas, but wanted to wait until we get this draw, so we'll order them this week and get them right after!
