Under Construction

February 23, 2012

In our household, we like to rip off Band-Aids with one big dramatic rip.  That’s why we decided to have our second baby and build a house at the same time.  At some point in the early stages of both projects, I got a promotion at work.  I don’t know if I would recommend doing any combination of the above at any one time, but here we are.  I’m happy to report that Don and I are still married, both kids still get bathed daily, and I haven’t lost my job.

This is all possible for a few reasons:
–  We have an amazing architect who we also consider a dear friend member of the family.  His attention to detail, flexibility, design sense, and patience has made the process enjoyable and less stressful.
–  My parents have been angels.  We moved into the second floor of their house and, with the kiddos, have subsequently taken over the whole place.  They are generous of their time and energy in helping with the kids and are tolerant of our crap all over the place.
–  My workplace is supportive of working moms and has allowed some flexibility for my work schedule.

A shout-out to all of the above.

I’ll talk about the design process in future posts, but here are some pictures to get you up to speed of how the house has progressed over the last 2.5 months.  We’ve been trying to capture the progress from one particular corner of our lot so that you can see the build as it happens.

We’re expecting to move in sometime in October or November.  Serenity now.
