We have walls


         First off! I won the Ryan Homes Summer Sizzle contest!! So thanks for voting. I have won a Weber Grill (It's a $900 grill so hopefully it last a very long time) and an offset smoker, as well as some meats from Omaha Steaks. I am looking forward to grilling at the home during football on Sundays.

          It's pretty dang awesome to watch your home be built in front of your eyes. Tiffany and I have gotten into a pretty much daily routine to hop in the car after dinner and then stop by the home site. Even Olivia (our almost 3 year old) seems to enjoy the daily trip, she proudly exclaims "mommy and daddy's house" whenever we pull up. At first, it was kind of sad to hear her yell it when we just had a hole in the dirt, but now with walls up I won't hide my pride.

          They have started to frame the house, the first floor is near complete. They have only been working on the frame for two days now. It's amazing how fast they work.

Here are some photo's for your viewing pleasure:

  3. Justin, congratulations on winning the grill!! I have been watching your home! The wood was sitting out there for days. It is great to see the first framing done.
