Meeting in the Mountains

As I write this, my other half is on a multi-day backpacking trip. He and five of our friends camped out on our land before the start of their adventure. A quick phone conversation revealed that the roof is enclosed and the rooms in the house are framed! There’s even a ladder leading up to the loft—at which point I tried (unsuccessfully) to convince him to sleep in the “master bedroom.”

When I asked how everything looked, “small” was the answer I received. Yikes! I was reassured by others, however, that even the biggest houses look disproportionate at this stage of the game. Let’s hope so. There’s not even drywall up to close off the rooms yet!

Yours truly will be joining her other half later in the week. He’ll be coming off the mountain the day we meet with our builder, finalize some changes and (I think) walk through the house with an electrician.

I’m so thrilled with the way the house is coming along, despite the snow and now rain New England has received. Expect lots of progress pictures when I return.

Best wishes for you all in 2010!


  1. I can't wait to see pictures! Have a wonderful time:-).

  2. You are right... houses always look tiny during the framing stages... don't worry... it will work out great. I'm looking forward to pictures too.

  3. Small is good :) Easier to heat, to clean, and you're never far from your loved one(s). Can't wait to have a sleep over!
