Suddenly There Is A Second Floor!

I can't believe how quickly the cottage has sprung a second floor! I have heard that the framing is the fast part of building a house and the finish work is what takes a long time. It is exciting to be able to walk through the entire house and see what it will be like to live in it....what the view from each window will be and imagine cottagey painted furniture in the rooms. The kitchen was all sketched out on the sub-floor so the cabinet maker can take measurements and build the cupboards. By the way, there will be a front porch across the entire front, which is something I have always dreamed of having. The dormers are another feature that I have loved, so it is nice to finally have a house with a couple of them. So far things are right on schedule. We had to decide on the kitchen appliances and flooring this past weekend. All of these decisions really make my head spin!
