(wish the current SNL was that funny...)
We came back for Day 3 of framing (thankfully the weather cooperated) and all of the kids got to see how much the house has progressed from the outside. It also gave us our first glimpse of the upstairs too.
The above picture shows the view from the outside today. (Editor's note: the girls look sad because we were leaving as this picture was taken).
This is the view from McKenna's bedroom (Bedroom 3).
This is part of our bonus room modification, but the closet shown will be pushed back about six feet and span the back wall.
This is Hannah's room (Bedroom 2).
Here is Alden walking into the family room.
Here is the view coming up the stairs into Hannah's room (Bedroom 2).
Our hallway looking toward Alden's room (Bedroom 5 instead of loft).
Our garden tub spot. (we'll be using the shower a lot more though).
We were especially excited to see the bonus room, and realize that yes, we think the furniture layout will work just fine. There will probably be a bit of a traffic jam between the laundry room, bonus room (bedroom 4) and Alden's room (bedroom 5), but we think it's worth it for the bonus room and to keep the bedrooms the same size. (yes, the kids have measured it out). We are hoping that the roof will go up soon upstairs, so we can see everything as a family. But, the way things are going, that won't be long.
