Drywall above the pantry and bathroom. That area is being prepared to accept the air to air heat exchanger and associated duct work. Photo taken at the back of the house looking toward the front door.

I love the windows on your front door.

And the exterior of the front door and storage room door, and the front door looking across the front of the house and trombe wall. Can you tell I like my front door?

Oh, there are two photos on the previous page too.....of the front door.

I will have gutters and 6 downspouts with catch basins draining into a 1200 gallon underground storage tank.

Photos are of the inside of the front door.
Love the door, Beth!

GG, it is so exciting. The workers are very kind to me, what with my multiple daily visits.

That is shaping up to be one fine home for you Beth! Nothing like the excitement of building. I'd do it again in a heartbeat - especially if I was close enough to make numerous daily visits. Goes a lot smoother that way.

Can't blame you for your love of your front door. It's a beauty.

Oh this is so very exciting! I am very happy for you! The view is lovely, and I like your front door very much!

I do love to see people get these nice houses! This makes me smile very much. I am sure you are unable to sleep well because of this lovely home getting ready to take you in and shelter you.

With love,
~Cat

My builder says he may have my house completed in 6 weeks. The wood staining starts on Monday. That includes the interior and exterior doors, porch posts, trim around the windows inside and out, and the window sills. The interior wall plastering starts on Wednesday. The first 2 of 3 exterior coats of stucco went on this past week; the final coat with color won't be applied until next Spring.

The photos are of my bedroom closet doors, all the interior doors look like this, and the new exterior stucco.

Party at my house New Years!!!
