Home Building Project Framing


Major progress has been made over the past few days. The first floor was completely framed today. The second floor should be completed tomorrow.

This is the front left angle. The front left side of the house is the master bedroom, master bathroom, and master closet. We were also excited to see the “SOLD” sign in our front yard!

This is the front of the house on the side of the garage. You can see the outline of the bonus room above the garage, and the window outline of the two story foyer.

This is the back of the house. I love all of the windows!

The great room and the master bedroom on the left (taken from the dining room). At the last minute, we decided to push the fireplace to the outside of the house, thus creating more usable square footage in the great room. In the original plan, the fireplace extends about 2 feet into the great room.
Finally, my favorite part of the house! This is the kitchen and keeping room. We added the two windows to the wall on the right, which will allow for wonderful views from inside the kitchen area.


Framing Part II

Framing of the second floor was completed today. The staircase has not been installed, so we can’t actually go upstairs to see the work yet. Hopefully, they will be in place soon! Being able to see the roof line really allows us to see the house take shape.

Back of the house. We still aren’t sure what we want to do off the back of the house. Maybe a deck, patio, raised patio, covered deck…
We do know that we want either a fireplace or fire pit, and a great place to grill!
