Getting there.....

Oooooo, it's getting so close!!
We went by the house last weekend and showed the's some pics!


~*My Kitchen*~

Today the electrician is in there putting up all the lights!! Then next week they're hoping to get all the flooring done, or a good start at it at least!
I'm praying that we will be able to start moving in the weekend before the end of the month...that would make it only 22sleeps!!! We'll see! Pray, pray, pray!!!!

More Pics!!!

These were taken today, about an hour ago!! I love technology!!
Bill snapped a couple on his cell phone and emailed them to me.......

painting the trim in our room

kitchen cabinets are going up

More painting and cabinet putting up for the rest of today and tomorrow. Unfortunately the Church(our sponsors) had to cancel for Saturday due to a lack of volunteers...bummer....we're so close!!!

I've been busy setting up address changes and cable/electricity stuff and of course packing like mad!! It is freezing cold in our house right now (the one we currently live in) it is so bad that my curtains move from the wind blowing OUTSIDE. Brrrr......I will be so thankful when we are all snuggled and warm in our new house!

...But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.Isaiah 40:31

...I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

Have a blessed day my friends!

A Long Overdue Update!!

Gosh we have been so busy!!
First off, here's a sweat equity hours update!!
We need 89 more VOLUNTEER hours (these are the ones that can be done by friends/family and Bill and I)
I have 52 more hours to get for construction hours. the difference is, now Bill has been able to take over my construction hours. We decided that for health and safety reasons (my placenta issues and just being 8mos preggers!!) it would be much better for Bill to take them over for me. That's it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now here's for the house:
-basement is completely framed out (thankyou, thankyou Uncle Ross for hammering away at that!!)
-they made use of the space under the stairs and beside the bathroom to create a storage area (I am sooo thankful I spoke up about that and asked!!! It would've been such a waste of space otherwise!!)
-the majority (or all by now) of the heating and electrical has been done!!
-the outside is complete except for the rock decoration on the front and the veranda needs to be completed
-we have chosen the carpet/lino/paint and have decided where we want carpet and where we want lino
-the eavestrophing (ok don't know how to spell that other than phonetically!!lol) is done!

It doesn't look like we'll be able to move before Christmas and new baby, but it shouldn't be much longer after that. possibly the first couple of weeks of January.
We are still praying for a miracle though!!! I guess the next obstacle will be waiting on the guy who comes to do the 'mudding' for the drywall...apparently sometimes he is on the ball and get's her done and other times he takes a while to get moving.....guess which we're hoping for!!!
We were pleasantly surprised to find out about the heating and electrical though, because we had heard the same things regarding that and it worked our quickly!!

I'm hoping Bill will be out there tomorrow, but we'll see!!

For now, here's a pic:
Our house number is up!!!!
We have a house number!!!!

Thankyou to Uncle Mike, Aunt Elaine, Uncle Ross, Aunt Linda, and Val for putting in some hours for us!! We appreciate it immensely!! You can never know what a difference you're making in our lives!! We love you!

God bless!!

Finally, a long awaited update!!!
First here's some recent pics!!
We have steps for our back door now!!
The stairs that lead to the living room
*stairs that lead up to our living room*

the basement
*our basement*

So here is the wonderful blessings we've found out!!
-We will have a dishwasher!! Originally the homeowners had to purchase their own, but they recently decided that homes will come with dishwashers and we will have one!!
-we will have in-floor heating in the basement!! A company donates 6 systems per year to Habitat and we are one of the lucky ones this year!!!
-Our basement is being framed this week!!! We also learned yesterday that they will be adding a 3rd bedroom in the basement for us to make room for the new baby!!!
This is a wonderful blessing and brings the total to 6bdrms for us!

We will also be picking out our flooring and paint this week, as well as out counter tops!! Soooo very exciting! We also get to to choose where we want carpet and lino.
Both Bill and I will be able to work on our house this Saturday, so I will take pics and update after that!

Exciting things!!
God bless!!

Hours Update for August 5th 2008

Hurray!! Bill worked so hard this weekend!!
On Saturday he worked on our house and yesterday he got to work at the other site.
So, as of today, we need 301 hours!! I joked with Bill that couldn't he have just pushed the crew for ONE.MORE.HOUR! lol Next Saturday, they are planning on being at our house again. It will be awesome when I can start getting some construction hours logged, we're not too sure how we're going to be able to swing that......need to brainstorm on that one!
