Let's Build a House

The rest of our wood arrived today.  Tomorrow they will pour the basement and garage and Saturday they may start framing.  They started framing the lot next to us today.  We are expected to get rain on Saturday and maybe a flurry or two.  But next week looks clear at the moment so hopefully they can get the house up and under roof before it rains again.  My heart skipped a beat today thinking how real this all feels now that the wood has arrived.

The 2nd half of our wood

Yup, that would be ours.

Garage is ready for concrete


  1. Congrats!! We just got our lumber delivered today also. :)

  2. Congrats on remaining half of the lumber!! We were right there on the lot when our lumber truck arrived. However because of this rain I don't know when they will start framing our lot.

  3. so jealous! Stupid rain held up our schedule. But I will be right behind you with ours coming next week.
    Congrats and I know what you mean about the "holy crap I'm building a house" feeling.

  4. So exciting! When my mom and dad built their house 10 years ago (not with Ryan), my mom always said the framing looked like a popsicle-stick house. Take plenty of pictures, because before you know it, you will have a house!

  5. Congrats on the lumber may get a little delayed waiting for your neighbor's home to finish framing, but once they start you will be under a roof very is amazing how fast they do the framing, but that is all part of the Ryan Homes experience...our house was just about finished and another home in our development being built by another builder still hadn't gotten thru drywall yet and we started around the same time.
