walls going up

the framing goes so quickly.... yeah!!! so cool!

room for the little porch off of the room, so we can be outside, and see the lake too!
this is the view....

I think we will need to take the tree out that is weird and scraggly looking though!

starting the work

finally! amidst the first snowfall of the year (YEAH!!!!) the guys ripped off the roof of the garage, and started work.

They have the floor down now, and will be building walls tomorrow. I climbed up the ladder to stand on it, and see where we should put the windows to get the best views. It was great because we could also see where to cut down some little trees to be able to see the lake. And also to leave up some trees we were going to cut, so that we don't need to look at the neighbor's houses!
I LOVE doing this stuff!

surgery again

been having some excruciating pain in my abdomen. finally got in to see my doctor today. I had called her at home last night, and she scheduled a CT scan for me this morning. Then I saw her this afternoon to find out that I have an internal hernia and I will need surgery to avoid having some serious repercussions. sucks.

I worked on making most of this so that we can store things from the garage during the building process. I liked that I did alot of it by myself. I did need help on a few places, and Adam used the brute force that I didn't have to drill the anchors into the ground on the corners.
The garage is completely empty now and it feels good to have had a reason to go through all of our 'stuff'.We have lived here for 8 years and it is great to overhaul. We are using it as an excuse to overhaul most of the areas of the house, as we rethink our living space.

sunny morning

the lake we live next to is so fantastic to look at in the mornings when we drive by on the way to school. On mornings like this one, I just have to get out and take a photo....

new office

Adam got a bunch of stuff from IKEA and spent a few days building it all. It went from a chaotic and messy room, to being awesome and very presentable! yeah! all for about $1500. It is now a great space to work in, and even to have a client meeting.

and even the boys love their new flat screens to on their side of the desk.....
