WEEK TWO


Week Two

Here come the trusses for the roof...fun to watch.

 






I know I heard a "this is too short" and a "this won't work"
once or twice.




Once the windows and roof were finished ( 2 weeks),
things seemed to go very slowly.




Besides the construction on the house,
there was a lot more going on having nothing to do with this house.
PPL (electric), Verizon (cable), and a carpet installer. 



Sometimes an average day around here.

There were workmen here on and off all summer, fall 
and half of the winter.
All of this outside my bedroom window which was open
 a lot of that time.
 The new house has a gabled roof, larger kitchen and an added powder room.
It has the same footprint as my cottage and to do that ,
they had to make the bedrooms very small.
The new occupants moved in last week before I could get good
finished outside pictures.



 This is the Florida room that was added and a little patio.
I don't think that plant is going to make it.
Not a great picture but I had to be a little sneaky to take it.
It's in the back behind the dining room and next to the garage.
Remember the shirtless roof guys??
Now there is snow on the ground..It took almost a year !!



Hopefully they aren't bothered by bugs because they are very bad.
I would never be able to sit out there..I guess they'll find out.
I hope they are happy here....

It looks very pretty, now that the construction is finished.. It is nice they have a garage and carport. I think the new occupants will be very happy there.. Happy Friday and have a great weekend, Missy!

It is really happening! It will be so nice when it is done and I bet you will be glad to see it finished.

Ummmm..glad the POH-lice didn't spot you sneaking around behind the house....visiting you in jail would NOT be fun. xo Diana

Tessa~ Here there be musing said...

if they don't know that patio will be "useless," they aren't from around that area. or haven't been present, during summer-bug-weather. -chuckle-

perhaps, about end of july, there will be a screened in something or other, going up there. ,-)

I don't think that plant will make it! It is a foreign language that you can't sit outside in the evening because of bugs. I do see lots of screened in porches while watching house hunter on TV. We might have a knat or two but just light a candle and they are gone. Love my evenings outside!!

It's a pretty home and they are fortunate to have you as a new neighbor. I have to sneak to take photos, too. I am always afraid I will offend someone! I've started a new blog, just yesterday. Hope you can stop by. Mildred

This two posts are a nice contrast - and building always seems slower then demolition!

Bem...operários competentes fizeram um belo trabalho.

Espero que seus novos vizinhos sejam felizes na nova casa.
