The Stairway to "Heaven..."

We came back to check out the second day of framing at the house, and noticed a lot of work being done. The workers didn't leave until 7:30 p.m. tonight, and got the entire first floor ceiling tacked in. We also noticed this...

Yep, the stairs have been installed. From this angle, it almost looks like, well, let's just say it makes me think of a song:

(Aw, c'mon!)

The stairs weren't the only exciting development. With all the wood in place downstairs (well, except for the guest bedrooom, but that's coming...) we got a better sense of just how it might look. 

 This is the view from the driveway today. Progress is a beautiful thing.

The picture above is a better picture detailing the work that was completed - notice the ceiling and other work in this view from the kitchen looking back to the front door.

Hannah in the kitchen from what will eventually be the guest bedroom (and full bath) downstairs.

A view from the kitchen looking into the family room and study. 

This is one of my favorite pictures, because it shows just how deep our house will be. This picture was taken from our front door, and Hannah is standing at the edge of the kitchen (that will make for a long hallway, but the french doors just to the left of the entrance will open it up a little). 

Lauren caught me in one of my Jack Handey moments, having a "deep thought." It's amazing how much our house has changed in just a few days. And there is more to come.
