I could have gone with She’s a Brick House, but I’m calling back to some good ol’ Ben Folds for this post. If you ever sneak up on me while I’m cleaning there’s a 99% chance, you will catch me belting out that tune. I digress. So back when they were putting on the roof, they were also putting up the brick. (Sorry for jumping around, but I really
wanted needed to talk about the kitchen.)
**Look how gorgeous the clouds are in that picture. No photoshopping on it at all.
They placed the piles around the house. That’s how we knew it was go time.
It was crazy to see it climb the walls from day to day. The color was hideous, but the plan was always to paint the brick cream so it was no big deal. Although looking at this picture, the color isn’t that bad. Trust me in real life it was much worse.
Baby Beckett was still cooking at a basketballs pace. 37 weeks and 1 day a mere 15 days before he arrived. Funny there was a time when we thought we’d be moving in before or right at his due date. Ha.
Notice they didn’t brick around the windows. More to come on that friends. A little architectural detail we included.
And a little of this too. I just noticed my hand in the bottom left of this picture. I’m holding a pen and no doubt my notebook. A girl’s gotta be taking copious notes. Always.
Happy Tuesday friends! If you need me I’ll be singing some Ben Folds while vacuuming and such.
