Farmhouse Framing Tour

 Good afternoon my dears,

Although autumn may not be one of my favorite seasons, mostly because of the shorter days, and early evenings, it is still in my top three. And there's no more beautiful backdrop to our farmhouse than the autumn glow

As you can see from the pictures, our farmhouse has now finished being framed - yay! They have also installed our windows and exterior doors, and the roof.

Because of the shorter days, it means its usually too dark to go see the progress after my hubby comes home from work, so we usually go on the weekends, when nobody's there to go peek and see the progress. 

We went yesterday, and they had poured the concrete on our wrap-around porch, and on three other stoops around the farmhouse. The wood columns are just temporary, we have white columns and a porch rail that will be added a little further down the line.

From the rising of the sun to its setting The name of the LORD is to be praised. 
Psalm 133:3

See what I mean about autumn glow? We are fortunate our windows overlook acres and acres of uninterrupted forest views. 

Last Sunday afternoon we went out for dinner and I took my yellow leather-bound-notebook, and pen along. I like to plan - way in advance - so I started 3 lists; Current home projects, order of moving, and phases once we've moved.

So far our planning has saved us thousands and thousands in picking out and selecting furniture in sales. Not a penny has gone onto a credit card, and I think in todays world, being 100% debt free and owning our current home outright, is an anomaly. We still have a few more pieces we'd like to get, but we'll get them little by little so when its time to move all the big pieces of furniture will be picked out and ready to move in, or have delivered. 

To say we are excited is an understatement! 

Thank you. To any of you who take the time to read my blog, or watch my vlogs. I enjoy seeing how other people live - and we all have one thing in common, we like to remember these little moments, because maybe, just maybe the little moments are what matter the most.

Okay that wrap around porch is my "dream" and I love the uninterrupted forest views! You know my hubby is a forester so we love our forests! I can't wait to see the finished project, and I know you can't wait either. It is really coming along fast now and the good stuff is starting now as they start working on the inside details. Whoa to being debt free too. That is definitely a huge accomplishment.
