The Homemade Roost is getting a Makeover

Building our house and busy

The HOUSE {aka the reason I haven’t blogged much}
So I haven’t really known how to do the updates on the house– I don’t want to bore everyone to death with picture after picture after picture of us building our house– {cuz really there are a million pictures} So I haven’t been doing very many updates but my poor blog has been suffering cuz really this is what my life is right now- building our house.
So if you get bored looking at so many pictures of our house sorry– {really sorry} but I’ll probably be doing a lot more posts about it especially now that we’re getting to the fun inside soon!
So the last update on the house on my blog I left you with was this
we had just finished getting the foundation poured- oh it was lovely- it was still summer and we had yet to really start the work on the house– and it was warm 🙂
This is where it’s at now….
and it’s cold like only 34degrees out there cold, but we have most of the exterior finished Yay!
I may have skipped a whole lot cuz it was a whole lotta work to get to this– so here’s the quick update with pics {a whole lotta pics}
 We built a bearing wall than a floor
 Than some more walls with some sheeting
 They poured the cap to our porch
 Than we did some Trusses
 A lot of Trusses with a big hole in the middle
 A hole where we had to literally custom build our attic dormer {many much work- took along time}
 I got a little scared at how stinkin big it was getting
 Ya we’re just building a castle here 🙂 Had to be the tallest in the neighborhood ya know {ps this is much sarcasm I wanted a small home that would blend– it didn’t happen}
 Sheeting the roof and realizing that the backhoe as much as we love it was not gonna cut it we needed something that could reach to the top of that steep steep roof
 And ya we still got to see beautiful sunsets every night! {my favorite part}
 Steep Roof– I’m pretty sure I gained 10 pounds this month from the stress of seeing the people I love the most hanging by their fingernails and toenails on the roof.
 Custom building dormer roof area – Done finally Yay!
 Picking out the colors and I don’t think they could make those samples any smaller.
 The kiddo’s parade– They’ve love getting to spend so much time with Grandma and Grandpa Foster
 Snow and Slush and Rain in October before we could get the roof on– I love sweeping lakes of water off the floor 🙁
 We did one smart thing we hired out the metal on the roof- {hallelujah- I didn’t want to gain another ten pounds 🙂 }
 The Fireplace– I sit in here and dream about when it’s working — sitting by the fire and reading a book during the cold — Instead of working outside in it 🙂
 We got Power 🙂  no more generator noise– yay!
 Many Much Cold Days– defrosting the Lull so we don’t slide off it
 Sunset and the outside 90% done 🙂
 Stairs inside that we traded pictures for– Good Deal cuz we were so dreading doing them.
And now we’re on to finishing building walls so we can get the Subs in there– Yay!
Well that was the quick 90 second version of the last 4mo. of our lives 🙂
Now I promise I’ll keep you updated and maybe actually blog more
