I got shingles…and a big deck!

This past week we got shingles… no not the virus kind, the asphalt kind! They are almost done putting the roof on, the front porch is in place and the back deck has been built.


Check out our front porch. I’m so stoked about it, I can’t stand myself.

Also these guys are always happy to see Andy on the job…


On to the big deck, or shall I say massive stairs. I’m going to need to have an elevator installed, no lie.

These about killed me. I should exercise more.



Plumbing has started and they installed my tub, so… I took a bath.

All I need in place of my phone is my glass of wine. I can picture it now.


The cabinet guys came out too and marked up my kitchen.

Here’s my RNGE (fancy for stove)


Dishwasher and sink


And my favorite part… kitchen island with pull outs and wine rack


Up next windows are being delivered and installed…and they are so pretty. Here’s a sneak peek:


Septic is being installed this week too. It’s all starting to come together and I can tell you this process is exciting. We finally sold our current house and we close on Monday. So we will be living at the lake for 2 months. I do not see any fun in this AT ALL, not one bit.

Now I’m off to take a real bath…construction zones are messy.
