The Red House

So our house is RED...... I kind of missed a few pictures, of our siding and other things, but it is coming down to the wire and we are almost about to move in. I don't know if you can see in the picture, but our yard has been trenched and we are putting in sprinklers. Jess and I are way excited.

My new neighbor, Sway-- We took a picture because we wore matching shirts from our tennis class this summer.

Royce in his beautiful, new garage. Oh-- so exciting!

This is just to prove that I build too. Somehow I've been designated to be the photographer of the family.

Framing The House

Framing the house has been long, but lots of fun. We had quite the experience learning new ways of putting wood together to build a house. We had lots of help from friends and family. Here are the pictures from start to almost the end of framing.
Here is the first look of what our house will look like.

We used Chris's Crane service to fly our trusses.

This is Monte. He is the crane operator. He really liked to flirt with Jessica, but I wasn't to worried.

Flying trusses.

Here is our neighborhood watch dog Loyd. Becareful he has his eye on you.

I had a lot of other help from the Bear, Scott, Ben and Kim working on the second floor. Jessica's family helped out a lot too, I am not sure why she only snapped pictures of my side of the fam.

Momma King nailing the floor down.

Here is part of the crew. Andy Smith, Tyson Frandson, Katy Frandson and yours truely. A lot of Hot and Ready pizza was eaten on saturdays.

Building the garage.

Right when we put up the front door I was required to carry Jessica through it.

Here is a the first floor.

Our Foundation and Lumber Drop.

Each Step was more exciting. Getting our foundation poured and lumber dropped off was lots of fun.

The Hole

We got really excited when they dug our basement. Here are a few pics of the beginnings of our house, our hole.

Our Lot

So we have gotten started late with this whole blogging thing, but we want to share what we have been doing all summer long. If you didn't know Jessica and I have been building a house. We have been doing it for 6 of the 8 months that we have been married. It is looking good. So I will start form the beginning and show you pictures of our house going up. Back in April we purchased our lot. So here is your lot. Its a nice big corner lot.

I'm tired of not being able to comments on the blogs I read because I don't have one. So I'm making one! Plus-- I have to take "royceandjessica" before someone else does! I can't just hang around waiting for a baby to arrive or something blog-able to happen. There are probably tons of Jessicas married to guys named Royce that want this blog address....right? Okay-- no more excuses. I've given in. Besides-- we're building a house! That's blog-able, isn't it? We'll see if I use it...
