progress on our new house

i am finally getting these pictures off the camera and into the computer (thanks, S!). i did my best to put them in order, but blogger doesn't always cooperate. it is so amazing to see the house that mark and i dreamed up on some scratch paper at the kitchen table actually take shape with concrete, lumber and nails. we can walk through the rooms at this point and really have a feel for the flow of the house and we love it. it has a very spacious and open feel. the view from the back of the house is beautiful countryside...someday a lake? but wait, i am getting ahead of things!
lumber delivered and ready to go...please don't rain!
