This is my first blog, begun in 2007. It chronicles the building of our house from 2007-2008 and also covers the first 3 years we lived in the house. I have since written 2 other blogs, Whitehaven and Pretty, Please.

Feel free to peruse the archives and watch the house go up!

I might not have to look at TYVEK on my neighbor's house forever!!!

The house sat from August 27 to the middle of December with no activity at all. Then windows were put in in one day in December. Then the house sat again for 2 months until two days ago when the brick came. I have hope that soon I will not see the word TYVEK any longer.

Finally got it done!

Was just driving around Buckhead and it's always a pleasure to come home to such a pretty house. As always we are grateful to our architect (Brad Heppner) for designing well.

It's been almost 3 years and I still love it as much as the day it was finished.

The pumper trucks and concrete truck showed up at 5:45am today (Saturday)! These photos were taken from one of our upstairs bedrooms looking down. The first image is of the master bedroom (which will be under the garage). The second image is of the main part of the house - one big loft like room with kitchen/living/dining.

These are just the forms for the concrete. It has taken 2 weeks to build them. Once the concrete is poured the forms are thrown away...

There is rumble of trucks next door on the empty lot. This bobcat tractor showed up at 7:30am today. I think the permit is complete...3 years to the day that we got our permit.
