Looking awesome, Squiggy.
You, Mrs. Squiggy and the adorable Squiglet should be happy with it.
Oh, I've already checked out. My mom is also harassing me about her suite.
I may end up regretting inviting her, but dammit... childcare is expensive.
So are you going to have a basement?
It will be well worth it, having her right there. Trust me!
Are you planning on having her babysit in the house or her space?
Are you aware how they are going to insulate the garage? I would recommend to have them spray foam the garage ceiling and at least batt insulation in the walls. Plus an insulated garage door. Spaces above garages tend to be colder. With your MIL being older, effects them even more. In our house on Long Island, we had to rip down the ceiling in the garage and replace the insulation with spray foam. It was just to cold in my sons room.
Either or. They'll have free reign to come as go as they please. I hope she'll make use of the lush and verdant walking trails and what-not.
What's what we're going to go after the fact. Going in it's just going to be batted r40 between the garage and the living space. The walls are going to be nude and drywall-less.
It costs about half as much to do it yourself than what the builder charges so we're going to knock that out before the weather gets too cold.
And my mom (sans in law) is just 56...so we've got some time before she gets all uppity about the cold.
I love home construction.
Ian had his first baseball practice last night, so here starts the push to Cooperstown.
Making sure his bat is in perfect alignment.
Look at that stance, can't teach that. Keeping the body still till it's time to swing.
Bonus video, first hit.
^Good times on the diamond. BTW, the video does not play. Says "This video is private".
I don't think I could live without a basement. I've got too much crap.
Not many homes in the southern USA have basements. All my crap gets shoved into the garage.
Is that because of the terrain or is that just how it is?
Florida homes almost never have a basement because our water table is too high.
We've downsized to save money for the house and when this is done we'll be going from 800 to 2500 sqft.
We won't have a problem with stuff...at least not in the short term.
I can't believe we're here. Aaron turned 5 years old today. I love him immensely, he's an incredibly sweet and caring boy.
Aw! What a cutie-patootie! 5 is such a sweet age.
I hope your son is having a fun birthday today! Great pictures!
Spoken like a truly proud papa - one who deserves to be proud! Fantastic photo set! Thank you for sharing!
