More from Arizona

More pictures from the Arizona build.....

The concrete in the stucco is now dry and they have painted the under side of the eaves so that the roofers can come in and install the concrete tiles.

There are now doors on the front and inside of the garage, which can be locked at night. The interior painting is done for the first coat, so now the cabinets can be delivered.  They will be installed yet this week.  The realtor will send us some shots once they are up. Most of the interior wood work is now installed as well.

I wish this would be my back yard, but the reality is that the concrete strip in the gravel is the footing for the block wall that will outline our back yard.  There are three other back yards beyond the concrete.

These photos are kind of boring, but remember she is depicting things that have progressed in the last several days.

And to finish out the pictures, here is a shot from my son's excursion over to Whiteman Airforce Base this past weekend.  They have an annual show for those that wish to attend....  Security is high, as you have to go thru all the metal detectors and stuff just to sit on the grass apron along the run way.  But the sights are fairly stunning.....

Somebody cue up the Star Spangled Banner!   Attention!!  Right Hand Salute!!   Two!!

  1. It is sounding more like a house and not just a shell anymore, and will be really beautiful.

  2. Wow I can't believe how fast that house is coming along. That plane looks like something from outer space. I am SURE we don't have one of them in Canada lol.

  3. Thanks for sharing the shot from Whitman AFB Rod...beautiful! Your new home is really coming along fast. Looks like you might get to return to AZ for the final walk through when the temps are well over the century mark...Yikes!

    We look forward to seeing you again in the winter...

    Howdy Rod,
    Looking good!! The plane is like the ones that fly over our place in Texas and DON'T MAKE ANY SOUND!!! They're scary!!!

  5. That bomber taking off while you sat on the apron of the runway would get your attentions as it passed by.
