Since last update….

Driveway rocked and ready.

Footers dug.

Footers poured!

This weekend they will be doing the block work for the foundation and basement. Soon–framing!!! Sooooo cool!!! Want a sneak peek at the plans? Go here. We’re building it with a walk-out basement to provide extra square footage for bedrooms and storage.

    Great looking house, even at this stage. :mrgreen:

  15. leanne says:

    Wow Suzanne, the house is going to be great when they get it finished. :hug: Are you going to do any flower beds around the house or flowering bushes? As for the book drawing, don’t enter me. I have it already, and guys, it is really good if you like indian romance. I would recommend Linda Conrad’s entire Night Guardians series. :thumbsup: Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Leanne :purr: :purr: :purr: :purr: :purr: :purr:

  16. Suzanne says:

    Leanne, I definitely want lots of flowering stuff around the house! I love flowers, love lots of color. I want to do a little herb garden near the house, too. The vegetable garden will be down in the meadow so I want a kitchen garden! :sheep:

  17. catslady says:

    I have the book so good luck to others. It is so cool seeing your house built!

  18. Jordan says:

    Suzanne, That house is so cute. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’ll be nice sitting out on that porch when it’s done.

  19. Lis says:

    Already have Linda’s book so don’t put me in the drawing, but wanted to say BEAUTIFUL house Suzanne!! Love that porch :butterfly:

  20. Melissa McClone says:

    I love the house plans! The walkout basement will just give you that extra space you need, too! Wonderful. Am looking forward to watching this progress!!!!

  21. Fannie M Wiggins says:

    Anyone who couldn’t be happy in that house has serious problems. :sick: I am sure you and the children will be very happy there. I am almost envious as I live in a mobile home and don’t have a beautiful porch like that. :wall: Everyone have a great week-end and :hug: to all.
    PS: I want to be in the drawing, please. :mrgreen:

  22. Angie T says:

    The driveway view is so cool! We live in the country, but right on the road. I wish we had a drive like that. I can’t wait to see the finished dwelling, so I know you can’t! :snoopy:

  23. TeresaH says:

    what a beautiful home! Please enter me in the drawing. :friday:

  24. Kim A. says:

    Wow, fabulous, Suzanne! I’d be ready now too, if I were you. ๐Ÿ˜†

    I hope it comes in on time and on budget! (Uh, does anything? Ha!)

    Have a great weekend, everyone. And as I have Linda Conrad’s Night Guardian series, please do not enter me in the draw.

  25. Kim A. says:

    How wonderful, Suzanne! I have porch-envy.

    Please don’t enter me in the draw; I have Linda Conrad’s Night Guardian series.

    Have a great weekend, everyone.

    -Kim :catmeow:

    P.S. Sorry if this double-posts; I seem to have having problem at home with the super-slow dial-up.

  26. Loreth Anne White says:

    I don’t know how you can possibly be getting any writing done, Suzanne. This way too dang cool! It would be consuming every moment of my energy. Um … now about a guest room in those plans …

  27. Dru says:

    I love the house plans. Can’t wait to see it once it’s completed. Add me to the drawing.
