Our Lake House Updates

Hey friends! I thought I would compile a post on all the latest updates on our lake house. I know I have been sporadic in sharing them and now I am going to put them all here weekly. That way you can see where we are, see what progress has been made and have 1 spot to go to rather than 50 million different posts. Check back often because I plan to update this weekly if not even more often than that. I will also be putting together posts on the building/design process in other blog posts. So this one will mostly be pictures! You can find this post also in my menu bar under OUR LAKE HOUSE. The most recent progress will of course be at the bottom. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions.
