A Little Tour

We are back in NoAla after our trip to the Little House. It is always exciting to see how it is progressing. We met with our contractor on Saturday morning and we picked out a pretty blue green color for our metal roof. We also changed a few things up inside to give us a bit more room. Here are some pictures from our trip.

Here is Marvin inspecting the progress. He is so excited about this project.

And here is Brother Bruce, who has been a tremendous help to us in this project. He told us that he comes home from work each day eager to see what has been done!

I took this picture as we were leaving the site Friday evening. It is a very peaceful place.

We were back Saturday morning to meet with Mont and to just enjoy some time there.

On the porch...pond is visible in the background.

We are planning to do a rustic mantle and surround.

This is my dream. I found it in a magazine.

We plan to use this old Beam for the mantle. My Daddy reclaimed it from an old house in the area. You can see the ax marks where it was hewn.

Bruce is saving us some old wood from the barn.

Sister Kristi took this picture yesterday.

The sky is a beautiful blue.

Hopefully the roof will go on this week! After slow progress for over a year, it is exciting to see this dream taking shape.
