Yardage Chart ~ House Progress

I found this fun yardage chart at

LeAnne has made these in various colors and explains how to print them. Great to have one at your cutting area and another in your wallet.

Here are some pictures of the house ~

This is the entrance into our community. Even though we are the only ones building at this time they still decorated the entrance.  There will only be, at the most, 15 homes, each on 18 + acres.
This starts the 3 mile drive to our place
Still driving to our place...

Turning off to our place. Can't see the house yet -
You can barely see the house - though you have a good picture of the dash mat for my car!

 The sheet rock is almost all up and they have started doing the tapping and sanding. This is the living room.

 This is a close up of the brick.
 They are painting the hardy plank the same color as the roof. The soffits are all up. We are going to put a non-skid tile on the front porch.
Sewing room!!! They finished hanging the sheet rock yesterday. I will be putting laminate flooring in here, easy to clean.

The solar guy starts next week, the septic tank goes in on Tuesday. The walkway and retaining wall in the front of the house will be constructed next week.

We ordered the flooring yesterday, The cabinet maker we met with does beautiful work, but I wasn't crazy about his door fronts, don't want a raised panel on the doors. I need to find a door I like and see if he can make it.

We ordered the moving trucks (three 26 foot trucks - We have a lot of big bulky items that can't be stacked) for Thanksgiving weekend. Not sure if the cabinets will be finished by then. If we need to we will keep the minimum of items and live here until the cabinets are in.

So fun to see the house with the sheet rock up, starting to look like a real home.

Hey, Dee Dee, where is this place? We are looking for land to build in East TN, but we don't need 18 acres! House is looking good.

The house is beautiful. I didn't realize it was 3 miles from the road.
