New House Construction

It all started at The Parade of Homes in 2008, when we saw a house that we fell in love with. Since then, we started working on plans and rearranging the layout to fit exactly what we wanted. Then last February, we purchased our lot, with the intention to build maybe in about 5 years. Then we saw interest rates fall so low, and decided it was time to pursue this dream that we've had for some time now. We shopped around for a builder. And the first week of January we broke ground on our dream house! Here's what it looks like currently:
The front of the house -
the garage on the left, the front door,
the window for the office, and the window for our master retreat
The back of the house -
our closet on the left (with a walkout to the hottub room), the Great Room windows, french doors and window for the dining area, and window for my craft room My craft room, we were able to squeeze out an 8 1/2 ft x 9 ft room for me when we found out our house could actually be 5 feet wider than we thought.
The view from inside looking out our back windows. The stairs to our basement - the basement will be unfinished, but most of it is framed already because the walls are supporting upstairs.
The third car garage, with a 12 ft garage door.
