Has it Been That Long?

Has it really been 21 days since I last posted here?, Wow, time is sure flying. It has been 6 weeks since we decided to build the new house. Alot has been taking place, we put down our earnest $, we got pre-approved for our loan, our BIL is going to rent out our current house, we picked out flooring and the other stuff that you do at the design center appointment, we met with a backyard landscaper/pool guy to get an estamate on the backyard, we also met with a house painter to get an estamate for the interior paint job (colors other than flat white paint) to be done before we actually move in. We have even met quite a few of the new neighbors (some already moved in and others that are in the building stage like we are). 

I have a few pics to share of the construction process so far...
This  first one is of our lot  after breaking ground  but before the foundation.

This one is before the foundation but at a different angle, to show just how large this first floor will be.
This one is after the foundation was poured, this is where my new quilt studio will be :0)

The rest of the foundation.
This is a pic of the framing that has begun of the first floor, it is of the 2 1/2 car gargae, the dinning room and the front door.

 And this last one is the framing of my quilt studio, it will be 2 for my desk for meet and greet and the other for my longarm and my sewing machines.

By the end of next week the second floor should be framed, maybe some windows added and the wiring inside the house started. It's been fun to see each week how much has been done on it.
