Part of the siding is up! I think the contractor was excited to see a different color come into the neighborhood. We chose James Hardie Boothbay Blue and we are the first to use it. I am hoping others will like it and start using it, too. Bob calls it a steel blue.
I do love the amount of natural lighting that is in the house. The living room and kitchen and dining room feel bright and airy. The bedroom, which is in the opposite corner of the dining room is quiet and dark. Love it!
I am very happy about the nine foot ceilings, too. That really adds to the feeling of spaciousness in the living room, which is fairly small and cozy.
My next excitement will come with seeing the house fully sided. I think by then I will be over my mid construction crisis and ready for the final stages of home building.
