Tiny Builder!

Hi everyone!
Another warm and muggy night here on the prairies. We decided it was time for another visit out to the acreage to see the progress on our little house in the big woods.
Bug spray before heading to the site. We've been very lucky to not have a lot of mosquitoes this year but we still take precautions as there are so many trees and flowers.
Wow! It's really looking like a house now! We look so tiny next to the house. And this is before the roof!
Our builder really wanted to get our little guy to have fun with the build. He approved the house design, signed the official documents and then tonight he was encouraged to give a hand with the actual building. B has his arms crossed, declaring himself "too little!"
But then decides to give it a try! Big builder teaching the tiny builder. Such patience. Can you tell he has kids?

Nailing the wall where the bookcases and fireplace will go in our master bedroom. Can't wait for our first blizzard. Just imagining turning on the fireplace and watching the snow fall outside our window. Then snuggling down to enjoy the warmth of the house and the pretty fireplace. Winter might not be so bad now!

And at the end of the building session, boys will be boys by throwing rocks into the new basement. Thanks big builder for teaching our tiny builder!

Oh my goodness! you can already tell it's going to be a beauty. Not exactly what I would call a "Little House" in the woods..this home is anything but small. It sounds like it's going to be a dream come true!
I am so happy for you! When you mentioned lighting the fireplace and watching the snow fall.. :) I was right there.

I may have to change the name of my blog! But it did start as a small cottage for the two of us, then grew to include family. For now. One day, we'll have our little house again! Thanks for visiting. I love your blog!
