Awesome Weekend!!

We Have A Basement!!!

Last weekend marked the beginning of a very busy but exciting summer for us. On Saturday our house project went into full swing with our basement being dug and our driveway being put in. Above is a picture before they broke ground.

Another before breaking ground pic

Someday, when our house is finished, I will be so glad to have these before pics.

My husband helped dig the basement...he is a very talented man and is very handy!!!

I LOVE this picture...that's my husband shooting the grade.

We hired Lee Jay Norton from Norton Excavating in Spooner, WI to dig and excavate our site. We have known Lee for over 20 years, he does an awesome job!!!!

The equipment.

My husband also ran the bulldozer all day...he loved it!!!!

Lee in the Excavater....go Lee!!!!

A view from a far.

Getting a little further into it.

These pictures were taken on Sunday, the basement is dug and ready for the concrete guy.

Another view.

Our driveway.

Our house is going to be a walk out...this kinda shows that here.

And here is my hard working man, he really didn't want his pic taken but I took it anyway.


My daughter Kara and my son-inlaw Travis have done some updating in their home. Below are some pics of their beautiful bedroom.

My step-dad did the work...he made this cabinet for Kara, thank you Ray for all your hard did an awesome job!!!

Her tile shower

Her bathroom...almost finished.

My mom helped Kara get everything organized, she worked her butt off all weekend!!!!! Here she is ironing the new curtains Kara picked out.

Kara in her new bedroom.

After a very LONG day of shopping for all the finishing touches for Kara's mom wanted to play Yahtzee....are you serious...we were exhausted. Where does she get her energy???? Look at my sister, her face tells it all....she looks exhausted!!!!

Here we are after our shopping trip. We didn't have room for a hair in the car after we loaded everything up. My sister and mom had a lovely ride home surrounded by mirrors and curtain rods and who knows what else.

They are packed in like sardines.

Last but now least, I will leave you with this picture of my mom...she is such a nut!!!! Never a dull moment with her, I think I know where my youngest daughter Alyssa gets it:) Love you mom...thanks for all your help!!!!

Until next time.....God Bless...Rhonda

Isn't it exciting building a new home! I know there are some rough times you go thru but all in all the excitement out weighs that. Best of luck to you. I hope construction goes fast for you and may you not run into any complications or setbacks along the way.
