Wow! What a difference a week can make! After a long haul getting an incredibly complex foundation in place for our new home at East Beach, our builder, Jim Schnieder of Schnieder Custom Builders, and his team are rocking and rolling! The house is starting to taking shape.
Two large steel support beams were installed this week.
In the background is the garage and carriage house apartment. This building is farther along as the framing started earlier as no steel was required.

The plan is for Bruce and me to be married in the house. We've been sweating this as we didn't know how much, if any, of the main house would be in place by the wedding date of December 28.
But it will be ready. HOORAY! Jim and his teammates, including Jeff and B.J. and others, are working 'round the clock during the week and Saturdays to get the house ready for the ceremony. Only rain will keep them away from their mission. By the 28th, the one-story side of the house will be completely framed and covered. (The second story side of the house will not be framed by that time.)
Our wedding is going to take place in less than a week!

Six days and counting....
Rain is in the forecast for Monday, but then clear weather is expected for the remainder of the week, Christmas Day, and our wedding day.
Happy Holidays to everyone and have a Happy New Year!
Monica, Bruce and Beau Beau
