The roof, the roof, the roof is on...

No, no, no. The roof isn't on fire (or at least we we hope not). But it is on the house. We've been hearing that it would be up for the last two weeks, but there were a few small delays. It's not entirely done, but we've got progress. And progress is good.

We haven't shown pictures of the back of the house for a while, so it seems appropriate to start there today. You can see that there is still more roofing to go in, but generally, the house is taking shape nicely. The smaller second structure is the detached garage with a granny-flat-type-we-
don't-know-what-to-call-it-but-it's-
cheaper-to-build-now-area. Clear as mud, huh? Let's just call it storage space for the time being. Storage space with some pretty decent views...



I love the fact that you can see the large palms at the front of the house. They are working out really well so far. And for the record, the smaller palm next to the dock started out as a wee 1ft Royal Palm on my back porch. He survived Hurricane Ivan and is still going strong. Apparently palm trees are the only plans that can survive Mrs. Big. :)



The front of the house is taking shape nicely as well. The roof will be finished and tarred (I didn't know this was done...) this week. With the tile order being placed on Monday, the roof may be complete in about a month. Here's to quick sailing on that tile delivery!



This obviously won't be our view for long (as there are regular murmurings about neighbors building), but we'll enjoy it for as long as possible.

So there are the weekly photos...we hope everyone enjoyed them!

It looks like it will be a very beautiful house! I'd trade Iowa winters for that location any day...
