Was this week's construction an excuse to take more Qori pictures? Possibly. Truthfully although I am super excited about the new backyard deck that has been taking shape this week, and Hubby has been dreaming of BBQs, get togethers, and simply chillin' on the deck with a cold beer and outdoor speakers, I don't think anyone will enjoy this new deck more than Qori will.
I mean look at him. It's not even done and he has already found himself a special spot to plop down and sunbathe. It's been awhile since we've lived at a house that had a deck, but I do remember Qori taking full advantage of the deck back in those days. He loves them! Dogs love to have a lookout point, and decks are perfect for that (now if we could only work on a pool - then Qori's life -and mine- would be complete. LOL!).
We reached a significant milestone this week and passed our electrical and plumbing inspections! Yay! That means the house is ready for insulation, another inspection, and then closing walls (finally!) See all those piles of drywall in the middle picture? Can you tell we are super duper anxious to start closing walls?
You might also notice the new framing for our kitchen breakfast counter in that middle picture. We opted for a breakfast counter instead of an island, but it's basically the same thing to me. And I love it!
And that friends, is what Qori calls construction life! -Shirley
