Framed House

Our house is framed and we are soooooo excited!

We’ve spent many, many months looking at our house plans on paper, but the plans never seemed real to me. I am a visual person and the plans just looked like a bunch of lines. I had a hard time visualizing what our house was going to look like. Josh had to keep reassuring me that it was going to look good:) He was right, because I LOVE our house! It turned out even better than I was expecting and it is only framed. I can’t wait until it is all finished:)

Two Peas and Their Pod House

During the framing process, we visited our property almost every day. The boys loved watching the workers and loved seeing each part of the house be built. It felt like every day was Christmas morning. Every day there was a new surprise. I had a hard time sleeping because I was so excited. I would wake up in the middle of the night thinking about the house. Josh would find me looking at my house boards on Pinterest and tell me to go back to bed:)

We still go up to the house almost every day. We even put camping chairs in our future living room. We sit and pretend we are watching football…ha!

Now, they are working on plumbing, electrical, and the roof. Our home builder warned us that this stage isn’t as exciting because it will look like nothing is happening on the outside, but we are still excited. We like watching each stage of the project.

We will do another update when the windows are in! In the meantime, we will be busy picking out tile, countertops, flooring, doors, hardware, etc. So many decisions! You can follow me on snapchat for behind the scenes videos. My username is twopeasandpod!

Have a great weekend!

Get the best of the best!

  1. Don’t flip out when the sheet rock/dry wall goes in – everything will look WAY smaller than what you imagined and it’ll make your heart stop. We’ve built and renovated more homes than I can count, and it gets me every time! Fret not, it will be fine – it’s just an illusion! Your home looks lovely – congrats!

  2. I love that there is a covered front porch area, it seems!! Can’t wait to see all of this come together 🙂

  3. It’s looking gorgeous! I can never visualize anything for the life of me so I can only imagine going through the stages of building a house!

  4. Looks great so far and I’m sure the boys are very excited….lol about Josh having to tell you to go back to bed…

  5. Take pictures! Once all the wiring and plumbing is in a few days before sheetrock goes up, take pictures (or a walk through video). That way you have record of where every pipe and wire is in case you need to track an issue or move a wall or hang something heavy, you will know where EVERYTHING is. Our builder gave us this advice and it has been helpful on several occasions. I forgot to take pictures of the ceilings and that has been an issue at least once. 🙁

  6. Hi Maria,
    How exciting for you & your family!! We are also, in the building phase but our home is a villa as we are empty nester’s. We will have to maximize every inch of our 1500 sq ft One level home when our grandkids come to visit but we are up for the challenge. Your recipes will keep me grounded!!!!
    Blessings to you and yours,

  7. We live down the street and have been patiently watching the progress on your house (I pass it on the way to the grocery store or the coffee shop or the yogurt place).  It fits the neighborhood which is nice.  Congrats
