So We’re Building a House

It’s something we’ve always wanted. A home to call our own. Being me, I’m particular. I wanted a new construction home.

A lot of paperwork is still pending, but hopefully, we will move into this house next year.

I was fortunate enough to photograph the progression of our future home early. I think these photos will make for great historical content.

I noticed the frame went up quickly. Looking at the scenes above with piles of wood everywhere, I couldn’t imagine how it would all come together, but it did! And very fast!

I’ve found myself watching Matt Bangs Wood on YouTube to understand what it takes to build a new house. It’s an incredible process. I want to experience every moment of it.

Since I check the house weekly, I miss out on the actual building process. So I watched YouTube to see what that part would have been like.

I noticed the whole block is being assembled in stages. Stage 1, from what I observed, was the foundation being poured. Some land clearing and the streets were being paved, but I didn’t witness that. I came in much later.

Stage 2 is framing. Stage 3 is putting up the paper sheets (I forgot what they’re called).

I checked out some similar houses in the neighborhood to get an idea of what our home would look like when further along. I’m super excited! I can’t get enough of this stuff!
