House Update - Construction

Well I haven't posted an update on what's been going on with the house construction since the middle of February so here it is!  

They laid the block foundation and put rebar (reinforcement bar to make it strong!) in it.  They built columns on the inside to hold the house up.  Next, they waterproofed all around the living quarters which is the black stuff on the block 





Then they filled the crawl space with this itty bitty stone.  


You can also see the back part of the house - the covered porch was filled with stone.  And floor framing happened last Wednesday!







Last Friday, lumber was delivered!

Yesterday they finished framing the floor!


Covered porch all filled with stone!  We will be out on this porch all the time!  From being in our current house, we know we live out back so we pushed the house towards the road as much as possible to maximize our back yard!



Today they are supposed to be going vertical finally!  I talked to the guys working yesterday and they said around 3 weeks to finish framing plus the roof.  We'll see!
