John and Leslie's New Home

I finished breakfast early with my friend, Juanita, this morning so I went out to where my son-in-law, John, and daughter, Leslie, are building their new home to take some pictures of the progress. They have been gone four days to market in Denver and the builders have progressed some while they were gone.

They had hoped to get in by Christmas but I think it will be closer to February before they get to move in.

John has a store he is opening in September next to their present house. I will take a picture of it when I go out there next. But for right now, at least, these are pictures of the house which is going up.

You can just barely see the wall of the second floor going up on the back of the house. The finished house will be about 2100 square feet.

I will post additional pictures from to time.

This is the house they are building but they have reversed the plan.

The garage will be on the opposite side from this picture.
They made a few other changes but this is the way the house will look when finished...only reversed.

I love the house and the porch on the front. I have always loved a porch and don't have one! When I lived on the farm I had an upstairs and that was great, too. You can leave the mess upstairs and keep the downstairs clean.

That's a great idea, Judy. Although, knowing my daughter, that will not happen.
