The house is framed!

We're on a roll! Within a week, our piece of land went from a huge pile of concrete to a completely framed house! It's amazing to walk through and actually see the room layouts and details, instead of only visualizing them. What a whirlwind this has been so far, yet I would do it all over again at the drop of a dime.

The house last Tuesday, day 1 of framing. This is standing to the far right, looking into the garage:

And here is what progressed within two days (last Thursday):

What a difference! Now I'm rushing to pick out exterior colors, roof colors, shutters (we're still not sure we're going to use them at all), column design, stone, trim colors, etc.
I finalized the cabinet choices last week, and I'm thrilled about the choices! The electrical, roofing, heating & air, and plumbing rough-in (thanks DH!) will be complete by next Wednesday, then it's insulation, sheet rock, and we start the fun stuff! (Painting, trim work, flooring, etc.)
