The drywall is finally all up, as are the shingles. Hopefully siding will be next!
Great Room looking towards the foyer:

In our future great room!:
Snow covered deck (still waiting on stairs):
There have been some updates since my last post, although not all visible. HVAC, plumbing, and insulation have all been installed. Most of the windows have been installed. The upstairs window is not in yet because we are waiting for drywall to be brought in through there. Also, we decided we wanted a window in the laundry room, which is an add-on that we are waiting for. The garage door was put up, and the deck is up with the exception of the stairs. Didn't get a chance to snap a picture of the deck, but I will soon! In addition, I have been able to work on some projects including reupholstering the two end chairs for our dining table, and painting the mirror for the powder room.
Garage door put on (so glad we went with the insulated one with windows!):
Here is a picture of the footers for the deck (which is now up, but no picture yet!):
Here is the fabric I chose for two of the dining room chairs (the other chairs will be slipcovered, and we will be using a bench on one side of the table):
Here is the bench for the one side of the dining table, along with a pillow that is my inspiration for the colors that we will be using throughout the house..neutrals with navy blue:
Today we had our first snow of the season. Had to get a shot of the house with the first snow on it! Plus, the tarp was added to the roof, but no shingles yet.
October 30: The framing officially started this day and has been progressing quickly ever since!

Looking out of our future sliding door to the backyard:
Here is the rest of the timeline, bringing us up to present-day!
October 2: The wall forms were put up.
October 4: Foundation walls were poured & tarred!!
October 28: We finally have a garage floor! Now if only they would pour the basement so the framing can start!
"Decorate Purposefully, DIY Frugally" is my motto for helping turn our newly constructed house into a home. This is where I document the home projects my fiance and I are tackling along with our fur-baby bulldog!
