Farm House Timeline

I wanted to share today the progress we have made on the house build.  A lot has been done since we began in December, I actually am quite amazed at how quickly it has gone!  

The few things that I have concluded from building a house is one, it goes a lot quicker than a remodel, probably because there is no demolition to be done or big surprises and two, this is the only house I want to build, for myself that is! Three, it's a full time job, no wonder I'm pooped!

While I am enjoying the process, I am also exhausted!  My husband more so than me, but he tells me that when it is done he will sleep for three days straight!

On to the fun stuff, pictures!  A brief picture timeline or flip book to show the progress to date.
NOTE: Lots of pictures ahead!
