Construction Week Six


Monday of week six, I came home to a mountain of dirt and a tractor in my backyard.

I love construction.


Unrelated, the next door neighbor must have tossed this can into my yard, because Casey came running in with this treasure, hid in Rusty’s crate, and did NOT want to let it go.


Getting ready for the garage floor.


Another day, I came home to the window in this room (my office/craft room/guest room) having vanished, with a re-framed, sheetrocked new wall!

There was some wall missing on the other side….


And the next day I had this……..



The greatest, most beautiful door in the history of doors.  It has blinds inside the glass that you can open and close.  I almost cried when I came home to discover this!

Oh, and we’re up to four walls in the garage!

There will be a garage door in the back of the garage as well, so that there will be better yard access.

    Looking good! The blinds inside the door are kind of genius. I have to admit the garage design was confusing me, but now I’m getting it. I can’t remember, but were there sketches posted on here of what this was all going to look like?

    Looks great! I would love to hear how the inside the window blinds work out. I love that idea.

    Woo hoo! So excited for you, Kara! That window is fabulous. Pure fabulous. I predict that you won’t leave that room. Everything is coming right along.

    P.S. I’m seeing some kind of flowering vine growing on the garage wall you see as you look out the window.

    Wow! What a difference with that door and the framing! I actually can picture what you’re talking about now. Before I felt like I just did a lot of head nodding and squinting. YAY visuals! Will they be out of your hair in time for you to plant for spring/summer?
