This won't win the award for the prettiest, but I'm still proud of it and it was enough to get my hands dirty and ready for more!

Yes, thank you. My wife and I are not yet finished, winter got in the way. We still need to finish the kitchen, put the floor in and plaster the outside.

This is the best exterior photo I have, but quite early in the house building process. I had just finished the roof.
