and of course, THANK YOU to all of our family who sacrifice their time and energy to help out on our house. All the time! We've decided to wait to move in until the house is completely finished...which will be awhile. It has its pros and cons, but I'm still excited about this thing nonetheless.

We also need to think of a name to call our little home. The previous owners named the property "Good-Bye Acres." Like, wut? No. Horror movie name. No. I keep imagining coming across a bunch of tiny little headstones in our woods. No. No. No. Nonono!! So. We have some time to think about it. Any suggestions?



Holla holla.


  1. Hooray for helpful young men and family! The roof looks lovely. Is the flashing/guttering/vent work done, too? Also, are you going to move any walls or widen any doorways while all your wall studs are in view? Now would be the perfect time to do it, seriously. Did you know that Cindy named her property Shady Acres? Who knew, right? She should put a sign up or something. Maybe you could think of something beautiful but in another language, like French, or Spanish, but not cheesy like "hermosa ponderosa"

  2. I had no idea! I will definitely be making a sign when we decide on a name. I can't remember what flashing is so I don't know, but Nathanael is going to have someone else do the guttering. They still have the other side to finish, but it's a third of the way finished! And yes to moving walls and widening doorways!

  3. How 'bout Some Man's Trash?
    Roof looks good! I can't wait to see more!
