What a thrill!

I was going to post more pictures, but I am still a little mac disabled or is that unable, and could not figure out how to upload a much larger slide show I created in photoshop to my website. So I've created a show with "slide" and this time, no music. I've now also redone the last slide show and taken off the music. Once it's cute, everytime, NOT! This slide show gives you a better idea of the relationship of the house to the neighborhood as well as the craft room and the drywall and brick work. I've worked on this waiting for a wind advisory to go down. I am just south of Macon and need to get out of the hotel and make it home, but after getting a comment this morning, I wanted to make sure that my friends had their dose of pictures, right Sharon?

The house is so amazing that I'm almost without words. You see I took a standard house and customized it quite a bit. I added 2 feet of depth to the craftroom, family room and 2nd owner's suite and vaulted the ceiling in that suite. Also, as a tribute to my 6ft2 husband, I did 9 ft rather than 8 ft ceilings on the main floor. And boy does all of that have an amazing effect on the house.

I got to see them do a lot of the brink work on the outside and was amazed that they dry-walled the whole first floor and most of the second floor in one work day. I am sure that as we speak, they have finished or nearly finished drywalling the whole house! I left yesterday morning and drove down to one of my favorite stopping places, Warner Robbins, GA. Not very far off from I-75 if has all the eateries and hotels and shopping you could want on a stop, including... wait for it... a Hobby Lobby!

Anyhow, it looks like I'm going to have to drive through bad weather this morning, I just heard thunder, so I guess i'd better get dressed and on my way! Talk to you all soon!
