Just thought I'd post a couple fixtures here, since nothing is happening at the site this week. This fan is currently our top pick for in the stairwell and our bedroom, and we have ordered three of these wall sconces for the master bathroom. It's so [...]

We were out of town this weekend, but from what we hear, we had 5 inches of rain! A brief stop at the land tonight showed that the garage footings have been poured, but are covered by about 6 inches of water. The house foundation walls have been [...]

Despite all the rain, progress was actually made today! The foundation walls for the garage and posts for the porch and entry were poured. It is a mudhole out there - and 3 year old boy's paradise. Once things dry out a bit, foundation work can begin - [...]
