Houses are built of brick and stone…

November 8th, 2015

…but homes are made of love alone!

Thanks to two professional and several skilled volunteer framers, the structure is going up rapidly now!

These photos were taken over a period of three days.

They may seem rather dull to some, but they are absolutely gorgeous to me!

Because to me they look like love, giving, hope, and joy.

Ben might remember the backhoes, bulldozers, cranes, and cement mixers in our back yard, but he probably won’t remember our house without Josie’s room.

Forty-five days and counting!

    Framing is just fun to watch – you go from nothing to something so rapidly! Thanks for taking the time to share photos of how it’s progressing!

    It is exciting to watch the progress. That picture of Ben is precious. He looks so full of life and knows he is loved.

    Aunt Mary, besides Verity, Ben is one of my most affectionate toddlers–likes to give hugs and kisses and still puts his head on my shoulder and lets me rock or hold him for a long time. Soooo sweet, and I’m soaking it in while it lasts. But Verity outshines them all in cuddliness. I call it Verity therapy. :)

    It’s coming right along! I love seeing the pictures of all the progress.

    It is wonderful to watch dreams come true. Is that Josie’s room and bathroom?

  8. Susanna says:

    Yes Missy, that’s Josie’s room! Isn’t it marvelous? I just went out there this evening to walk around and visualize the finished space. :) She and Laura will be sharing the room, so Josie’s not down there all by herself, and because the two girls have already begun to bond.
