Building with the Beckers – Part 2: The Dirty Work!

These last couple of months have just flown by, and so has the progress on the house! We have come a long way and it’s so fun to see it all evolve through the images that we snap on our iPhones every time we are out there! We started digging in late June, and at this moment they just finished framing up all of the walls and will start putting the roof trusses on this week! It’s really starting to take shape and it’s so awesome to see our vision come to life.


First things first: Drive out where we wanted the driveway to go! 2015-08-17_0002 2015-08-17_0003 2015-08-17_0004  2015-08-17_0006 2015-08-17_0008
