We start framing tomorrow. I will for sure be taking pics of the process. I may need to sneak around because I hear that the guys really don't like having their picture taken. Oh well guys, you are going to just have to deal!

Until then, I scanned in our plans. They were on big sheets of paper but with some folding here and there I got them to work. There are some minor changes that these plans don't reflect.
There is a front porch. It is hard to tell because most of it in the picture has been removed. Also, the peak above the garage will be bigger. Our builder thinks it will look better aesthetically. It serves no purpose really. There are no dormers there on the inside. I just wanted it there for looks.

This is obviously the 2nd floor. There is a door in our closet which will lead to an attic space above the garage. We plan to eventually put drywall on the walls. I am so happy about all of this storage.

And this is the main floor. The washer and dryer will be switched to the outside wall. And the cabinets in the kitchen will come out to the sliding doors. Which means we are flipping the door to open from the other side. The great room and the dining room will be hardwood and the kitchen and mudroom/laundry/bathroom will have tile. We will probably put the same tile in the entryway.

And there you have it. Sorry it took so long Brandi. :)
