Hey sweet friends! We are so happy to have y’all join us on this new adventure of ours! We are building our dream, steel-framed farmhouse, and we couldn’t be more excited! Our farmhouse build with Peak Steel is coming right along! Woohoo!

Here’s what we started out with….10 acres of land out in the country and on the outskirts of a small town called Social Circle…right here in Georgia!

Of course, before any groundbreaking happens, you always have to get a pic at the spot you’re building! 😉

Our builders began erecting our steel-framed farmhouse in early January….But first, they had to prep for the concrete slab to be poured!

Here are some pics of our progress…

Because of our crazy winter weather this year, the concrete guys skillfully and carefully poured in the midst of our icy conditions!
Once the concrete was dry, up next on the to-do list was the erection of our steel frame. And then, the erectors hung our exterior walls!

After our exterior walls were hung, up next on the list was the black metal roof! It actually took a little more time than we were expecting! It’s not quite finished yet, but we’re getting there!
