Concrete & A Little Encouragement

7:22 PM Katy 9 Comments

Trying to remind myself how far I've come, because we're stalled on framing and I feel like I will be an old lady before this is done. (My mom told me to quit whining. I HAVE NO PATIENCE. 2 YEARS OKAY!? TWO...YEARS...)
my parents took a day trip to the island and took some better pictures of the finished foundation...(yeah that's my mom)

my sweet builder and his lovely supervisor, Missy, carved all the kids' names in the concrete for us.

And something to remind us why I took this leap:

  6. The names! So cute- not many builders would do that!

  7. You're doing it Katy. You're REALLY doing it! So happy for you and glad you're letting us all come along for the ride. Not being funny here... I think that conc. and masonry in place look's beautiful. And like Mollie D., I really love the names.

  8. Just keep reminding yourself that one day you'll be enjoying that view with the project completed and a margarita in hand. Go Katy, go Katy, go Katy!
