Won’t You Be Our Neighbor?

Tom & I took a walk around the neighborhood last night to take advantage of some very pleasant weather (this week the temps have dropped as low as 37-degrees, then risen to a balmy, humid 77-degrees, and all accompanied by rain. Blech). The builder has opened up a new section of our neighborhood. We’ve been watching them work for months – removing trees, moving land around, etc. But we haven’t walked down the street to survey the progress for ourselves.

The blacktop was poured last week. It looks like a street now!

I could barely fit this machine in the frame. I have to give land engineers (is that what they’re called?) some props. I have no idea how they turn a hill and gullies full of brush and trees into a street. If you told me to clear some land an build a house, I would have no clue where to start!

6 Months Old!

We moved into our home 6 months ago today! My, how time flies!

Let’s take a look at the progress we’ve made since then:

Family room on move-in day (Dec 2011)

Family room today! (June 2012)

Kitchen on move-in day (Dec 2011)

Kitchen today! (June 2012)

We still have some “finishing touches” to add, but overall, I think it’s coming along nicely!

Have a lovely Sunday!
