The Walls Go Up!

The middle of May the framers were working to frame up the house. It took about two to two and a half weeks for the walls to go up. Then it rained the first week of June and nothing happened that week. The next step was the windows got put in.
This is the porch and front wall of house being framed. They put it together then lifted it up in place.
We have never built a house before so all this is new to us...and exciting!
Here is the side and below is the front view of the house.
We did go back with the original house plans but changed it up a little. We changed the things that we had already said we would change one day. The week of the 4th of July was one year ago that we had moved into the house. We were there almost exactly 5 months when the fire happened. So hard to believe all that has happened in a year! 
God gives us beauty for ashes, strength for fear, and gladness for mourning...
