We thought we could do all the work ourselves, but two years later, we realized we don't have the time or man-power to get this done in any reasonable time frame (it took us a year to do the foundation). So we hired subcontractors. We hoped to be moved in during summer/fall 2011, but finally got moved in December 2011 (weeks before new people would be occupying our old house). We still have LOTS to do! The house wasn't even finished when we moved in. There were no shelves anywhere to unpack our stuff. Stay tuned to all we have in store. We have lots of plans. Welcome to our home!

Master bedroom (dark dressers have since been painted light gray):
Other half of master bedroom facing the 2nd bedroom:
"Attic" space (accessible from 2nd bedroom). You can actually stand up in it once you go through the short door. Still need to put up plywood and put down flooring so we can start using this as storage and get boxes out of the garage.
**Update** This is done and is now full of boxes.
