Picked out the stucco, and I love it.

There is going to be an arched ceiling. I will have to take a photo of it when it is finished. It is too difficult to describe.

Wow Shell, it's coming along nicely!  Bet you can't wait for it to be done!

Looks like you are built on a bit of a slope?  Bet you have a nice view!

I was in Rancho Santa Fe for mothers day yesterday and it was a beautiful day!

Shell, from the horrific fire to the unyielding insurance company and past all the rough bumps in-between, you have shown your unfailing strength.  You are one awesome woman.  You have that rare quality that allows you to focus on the brighter picture.  You inspire me and leave me in awe.  Good luck with all of your well-thought-out the plans.  Enjoy each step.  Celebrate the gift that you are.  God bless you and watch over you in this new phase of your life.

You have great taste.  I love watching this.  Thank you for letting me be a part of this exciting adventure.  You are one amazing Monkey!!!  Love ya, sweet thang!!!

Shell,

I'm so happy your house is shaping up after all this time after the fire & the insurance issues.   

My SIL & BIL are in their house, but because it wasn't totally rebuilt following their fire, they now only have a temporary C.O. & they're now fighting with the insurance company to pay for those things that need to be addressed.  The steps to all entries are the original and they do not pass the current code, is one example of the snags they are running into.  It looks nice but the contractor did a shabby job on some things.  He took the job for a certain price and when he couldn't do the job for that price he tried to cut corners.  BIL is a retired union carpenter, so there's no fooling him.  Loose cabinets, uneven railings & trim...  They had to use some money set aside for furniture for permits the contractor should have gotten.  It's still a nightmare. 

Thank you for sharing with us.  Hope you have more pics soon.

Hi Shell,just stopping by to see if you have any new photos.

Thanks for stopping by Trimm!
I do have new photos, but they are working fast to get us in in 2 weeks so I decided to post when things are closer to being finished. This past few weeks I have been furniture shopping and I tell you, it is hard work. I have so much to replace so have been bargain shopping and that has worked out well. It just takes lots and lots of looking, and these days folks are willing to bargain. We will have the basics to move in. I need to start packing. It is amazing all the odds and ends that accumulate over 2 years.

Shell, I hope you and your family are comfortable in your new home.  I remember reading from the beginning, when you had to flee the fires in your area, and how sad it was that you had to come back to total ruin.  You lost so much, and it was only the start of the long journey getting through the process of temporary relocation, dealings with the insurance company, and the planning, building and moving to your new place.  Whew!  But you did it.     There are monkeys that would love to see your newly completed home, including me.  But if you feel you shouldn't post the pics, I'll be disappointed, but I'll understand if it's a security issue.    It doesn't stop me for being happy for you and your family.   an angelic monkey
