Yet More Progress! Rocky Mountain Woman Builds Her Dream Home – Part XV

Progress! Some days it seems like nothing at all gets done (probably because Dick never even showed up), but some days the house looks entirely different when I get home.

As the outside sheathing goes up and the house starts to take shape, I can’t help but be excited. I race home every night to see what progress has been made and some nights I sigh with disappointment because I can’t see any progress.

Some nights, however, I can see actual progress and I run around with my camera and take pictures, trying to imagine what it will look like when it’s done.

Those nights make me believe that this might kinda sorta be worth it someday…

    Yowser♫♪ To build your own home is awesome! Curious whether you are incorporating energy saving/green tech. Good luck!

    Fantastic view, what a fabulous position for your home. It must be really exciting to see it go up. GG

    It is so going to be worth it with that view. Dick however sure knows how to take the pleasure out of what should be an amazing adventure for you. Hopefully someday you can put that man behind you, the house will be finished and you can sip your wine while enjoying your new home.

    It really is starting to look like a house! I’m excited for you, and I look forward to seeing the finished product!

  14. Jenny Matlock Says:

    Wow. It’s really starting to look like a house!

    Those views are going to be staggering. I can’t even imagine sitting inside on a snowy day and waking up to that jaw-dropping vision every morning.

    Building can be so frustrating. I think Dick might need a little kick in the behind!

  15. Judie McEwen Says:

    Ha!! It IS taking shape! I know you are excited, and I am excited for you. We need regular updates/photos!

  16. Andy Says:

    How long has it been now? You’ll probably get through a few more bottles of vino before the house is completed! (LOL) I’m just awestruck by your scenic views. Thanks for sharing.

    I’m hosting the next Blog Hop Saturday! on June 2nd. Hope you can join the fun!

    You Are Perfect To Me
