Roof, Windows, Doors and Siding!

        Today was a great day. I got to spend time with a special friend making meals for our 2 families while Daniel worked hard on the house before the big snow storm hits tomorrow. Weather reports are saying that we may get as much as 12 inches! It has been an exciting last couple of weeks for us on the house. We now have a competed black metal roof, most windows and doors in and the Hardy board siding partially up! 


You may remember that God graciously allowed us to find
all of our hardy board siding on Craigslist for less than the
cost of vinyl siding. Thank you Jesus! 



God also allowed us to find our front door on Craigslist!  I am
planning to paint the door part red and the side lights white.

My sweet husband has worked so hard on this house and making our
dreams come true! I am continually amazed by what he is able to do
by himself! He is such a hard worker!

French doors in dining room. I decided to do a mixture of some
windows and doors with grills and some without to add interest.
So far I am loving it! 

Dining room windows are in except for the big picture window in the
 center. The side windows have grills but the picture window in the
middle will not. 


You may be wondering why there are no windows on the right
side of the house... That is where our future garage
will be!
It is hard to see, but I chose a black metal roof in hopes of giving our house a "farmhouse look". I love how it turned out! It is amazing how much more complete the house is looking with all the recent progress. We are getting so excited to move in! It is still hard to believe that this isn't just a dream and that soon we will live here. We feel so blessed!

Bad weather has a huge effect on the progress of a house construction. It was a good thing that your husband was able to finish most of it. Particularly the roof, because that will be your house's first defense from the snowstorm. Also, it was a good choice to choose metal for your roof. It’s very durable, eco-friendly, and can last up to 50+ years if properly maintained. These are the qualities that could really help your house to stay strong.
