The Challenges of House Building

This past week has had it’s challenges in the house building relm. First, it started with the stairs. We won’t go into all the problems we had there. πŸ™‚

Now things are going well on the stairs.

The boys bedroom and the music room (which is currently take up sweet Moms living room!) will be upstairs.

Then, a leak was discovered yesterday in the finished living room ceiling. Sadly, a portion of the ceiling had to be removed so the leak could be found. When Dad came home tonight, and we girls brought up that we had heard about the ceiling, he responded with a cheerful attitude. Truly, Dad has learned to rest in the Lord, and with His help, the leak will be fixed, the ceiling patched, and we’ll be back on to progress. Sometimes there does have to be a few steps back, before more progress can happen πŸ™‚ .

Our living room ceiling. Hmmmm....

  1. I am sorry that there have been a few back steps in your house progress. It is a good thing, though, that the leak was found before y’all moved into the house. πŸ™‚ Your family is such an encouragement and I want to thank you for that! Blessings!

  2. We’re sorry to hear of the steps backwards πŸ™ Building sure is a test of patience, endurance, and good attitudes, eh?

    BTW- I LOVE the colors in the den!! I had those colors in our house in TN way back when. Still love them! Very homey and cozy.
    I want to put Scripture on the blood red wall. I can see it in gold letters. The difficult part will be how to do it. Oh well, in time.

  3. I’m also loving the colors in the living room. I’m sorry for the extra work for you-how will you patch that part of the ceiling?
    Do you have a verse already picked out for the wall? I can’t wait to see photos of the completed project-

    I’m not sure how Dad’s planning on patching the ceiling :-). We don’t have the specific Scripture picked out yet for the wall. That’ll come with time :-).
