House Progress

Yes, we have finally made a decision on our living situation! We are building a house in Plain City, UT. Never heard of it? No one has. : ) It is north of Ogden. Yes, it is going to be a far commute for Steve, but it will be worth it. We felt really good about the price, which made us okay with the location. We also love the neighborhood where we are building. Here are some pictures of what's been going on so far in our build.
Our footings were poured the Friday before Labor Day. Look at that view out our back!

I couldn't resist a picture of my cuties!

Our slab (foundation) was poured yesterday (Thursday).
When we went back tonight our house was framed!
We are grateful to have a great builder (plug for Hawkins Homes!!!) that is willing to move quickly so we will be able to meet the deadline to get the $8,000 federal grant. We're going to be in before December, HOORAY!!!
