Our fourth month of house building with a video update of our dream home that’s almost finished being framed!!
Remember how in the first month of house building everything was moving really quickly & then we had two months of rain in which nothing could be done?
Well, the season of rain is finally over! August saw the beginning, middle, & almost the end of the framing of our house.
Once they started they moved so quickly. I couldn’t believe they were able to frame so much of our house in one month.
The framer originally said that he thought it would take them 4 weeks to frame our house.
Then I heard it may be 5 weeks & I started to worry the weeks would just keep adding up, but no.
They were determined to frame our house quickly & efficiently, which you can see in this August house update video.
And I know what your thinking, wow, that’s fast, are you sure they did everything right?
We are pretty darn certain.
Our contractor went out to our house every day & Roger & I went 2-3 times a week.
Mainly because we couldn’t wait to see how much they got done every day, it’s so exciting!!
We often came later in the afternoon/evening like 5-8 pm & usually, they were still out there working!
This month we ordered 3 fireplaces, 1 wood burning for our living room & two propane fireplaces, one for our keeping room & one for our bedroom.
We also ordered our windows & exterior doors in August & as soon as they arrive the framers will be back to install them, hopefully sometime in September.
I can’t wait to see & show you the windows & exterior doors we picked.
They are going to be gorgeous & let in so much light, especially in the morning as the backside of our house has a sunrise view.
In August we also finalized our sink, shower, & bathtub faucet order.
I’m still working on picking out lights & fans, but we have a pretty good idea of what we want for inside our house.
I’m just struggling to decide on the design of the exterior light fixtures.
Plus, I’m slightly concerned as we may be over budget for our lighting budget. So I have my work cut out for me in trying to find good deals, discounts, & sales. Here is a peek at a light that I plan on having on each side of our two vanity mirrors in our master bathroom.
I can’t wait to see what changes & progress September holds for our house!

What were you most excited about once your house was framed?
I’d love to hear from you!
