So... We are building a house. It is going to be in Hooper, and we are SO excited about it, and it's fun to watch it progress.

Here are some pictures of the house from the beginning.

Our lot before we started building.

When they started digging our hole, the kids and I ate a picnic in the van while we watched them dig.

Our hole.

Our contractor, Brady and Casey checking out the footings.

Foundation forms.


Digging the trench for the water line.

Casey and his dad doing the plumbing.


After gravel.

Flatwork (cement in basement and garage).


It rained for a few days before the roof was on. So Casey squeegeed all the water out of the house.

Benson helping.


After the roof got put on.

 Our little family.

Done with framing.

We still have a LO-ONG way to go! But every time something new happens, we get really excited, and we get closer to having our dream house!!!!
