|Deshi Deshi Basara Basara!!!!! [There you go, Batfans!]|
|From a distance you can see the front window, front door, garage, and staircase window!|
|We told you that this machine would play a big role in the building process!|
|Check out the guy on the second level!|
|That large pallet of wood only has this remaining...well, at this spot.|
|A piece of the second level sits in our neighbor's yard and that worker is now at our level.|
|Again, from a distance. Overkill on this angle, sure, but it was fun!|
|From the left side of the house. It waits the second floor!|
|This will soon be a view of our stairwell and down our hallway!|
|From the back you can see the living room windows, kitchen window, and sliding glass door.|
|All the way from the backyard. See the Pisa Torre in the distance? It is coming along!|
|From the backyard on the right side of the house.|
|A view into the kitchen. You can see the struts that are the start of the second floor. That will be the master bedroom soon enough!|
|Closer view into the kitchen. Remember that storage room window? Now it is covered with house!|
|Okay, this caught our attention. However, some workers noticed as Bryan snapped some pictures and quickly got this one in line. It was probably not an oversight, but they were taking a break. It was over 90 degrees out there!|
|This little ledge will support our fireplace soon enough!|
|Even more of our house on the neighbor across the street's land.|
We were starting to get some strange looks, so we hopped back into the car and sped off to what will become our daughter's middle school. There we learned some negative news. First, there is no real accelerated options at the school. We are leaving a community that has the option for middle schoolers to take advanced courses in specialized areas such as Math, Science, English, and World Languages. Well, this is not the case in her new school. We were told that there was a gifted program before we even put down money on a lot in the area.
While that was a major blow, we did see one bright light. It is the smallest middle school in the area. So, there will be more teacher/student interaction at this school. That could be a really good thing. Also, they do have a form of a gifted program, but it does not appear to be as advanced as what she is currently in during her 5th grade year. In all, we realize that we are going to need to continue to supplement her education. It was just the initial shock of being told one thing by the school district and finding out another. Bummer!
|You said it, kid.|
We got back on the road with just enough time for our son to wake up in the backseat. He said that he really wanted to see the "house bones". So, we turned around and went back to the site. We were able to get some in-action pictures this time around.
|Putting down the supports for our son and daughter's rooms.|
|Careful, worker guy. It's not a soft landing on those rocks below!|
|More wood being delivered for the flooring.|
|From a distance you can see everything!|
The next stop will be another visit on Friday. Until then, RISE!!!!!!!!!
