They started framing for the foundation last week – woo hoo! Some additional cut and fill was required and now that is done and they have started framing for the foundation. They will bring in some base and then start laying out the in-slab plumbing and electrical. We should have a concrete pour in the next 3 weeks.
Sweet hubby had sent a few photos of the framing but seeing is believing….. this is so exciting! Also in the excitement is our neighbors directly across the street are getting ready to map out where they will place their home – they decided they needed to go at Sunrise on Saturday to see where they might build – to quote Lilly “We went out to see the sunrise see what angle we may want to put the house and realized it is beautiful at any angle.” I think Lilly and I have some fun times ahead of us – can’t wait to meet her!
Lilly’s photo from sunrise – taken from Crockett Lane road – their property to the left – ours to the right.
Here are a couple of photos of our foundation framing……..
The inside of the house, the opening is the garage area and just to the left of that is my quilt from.
The cut in the hill side and a view of the back of our home – the area that juts out is the covered back porch
The view from the top of our hill….
Then we took the scenic route home to Houston –
Growing in the ditch by our road
This field of bluebonnets is just the other side of the subdivision – I did not realize bluebonnets smelled so yummy!
A bluebonnet – up close.
What are these bright red flowers? These home owners invited us to “come on in and take photos” We asked if we could come back next week with the grandkids – they said “Happy to Have You!”
Blue Bonnets, Indian Paintbrush and those vibrant red flowers!
Everywhere we looked!

A little more camera play

Yep – you have to get off the interstate and see life on a country road
What a beautiful front yard
Same front yard – different angle
That hill was gorgeous! And the horses were wandering over to say hi!
Next year I hope to take these photos while I am riding a bicycle through the areas that surround our new home!
