One downfall of the house being mostly done is that it is now under lock and key. Once the garage door is installed and interior materials delivered the builder has the doors locked to prevent those items from walking away. The builder's hours are from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. so if we want to take a look at the progress we have to do it between those hours. Instead of stopping by the house twice a week we now only go once a week during lunch.
Each week we bring the kids with us so they can take a look at what their new rooms are going to be like. Alyce gets a lot out of this and Luke likes to come along for the ride. Each time we are on the property we are supposed to wear hard hats and I can only remember one time that we've actually done it. The hard hats are in the building office and more often than not we looked at the house after business hours thus no hats. The one time we got hard hats we managed to get a picture of Luke and Alyce wearing them and it was so cute! Luke looked especially happy to be wearing his.
