House Progress

This is my first house progress update-the foundation has been poured and we are on our way.  We have been experiencing some beautiful weather here in Dallas.  In sum, so far so good-we are on schedule and it's full steam ahead.  Framing will begin shortly.

The concept of the lots is that they are narrow and long in order to accommodate a side yard/courtyard.  This makes for a pretty view when you are looking out the windows of your living quarters.

I love that these guys (girls?) greeted me today upon entering the neighborhood.  They don't look as happy to see me as I was to see them!

  4. How exciting! Must be daunting and thrilling at the same time to be building a house! My in-laws built theirs from scratch and the wonderful thing is that their home is so much more personal because of that. Cute cows, though some do look a little menacing ;-)
