"... the house allows one to dream in peace."
New Home 2015 Update

"If I were asked to name the chief benefit of the house, I should say:
the house shelters day-dreaming,
the house protects the dreamer,
the house allows one to dream in peace."
Gaston Bachelard,La po├ętique de l'espace, Ch. 1

As I mentioned at the beginning of May, we contracted to build a new home about seven miles East of where we are currently living.  The home is in the perfect location to all SC's activities, AC's work and the airport, church, family and friends.  It also has the benefit of being on a cul-de-sac with a yard large enough for a pool (both requirements AC had when looking for a new home).  Finally, it is larger overall and laid out differently than our current house, which will help immensely with storage and traffic-flow issues we are having.

It has been about seven months since we signed the initial paperwork, and it has been incredible to watch our house become a house before us.  This new neighborhood is actually on the path we drive multiple times a week to and from SC's school, so we are constantly taking a peek at what new thing has happened.  We are still about two months away from closing, but after so long it feels like we are in the final, downhill push!

Here is a pictorial story from bare land to where we are now!

So now here are some of the most up-to-date inside pictures, though it seems like something changes and gets done almost every single day, so more has happened already.  We popped by this weekend and there was a huge team working on putting all our light fixtures in.

It has been interesting (and exciting!) watching this house get built, and we cannot wait until it is finally ready for us to move in.
