More new house pic's

Well they are coming right along with the house. DH took a few shots of the foundation flooring. Next step is framing the walls.That's when I think it will start taking shape and you will be able to tell how big the rooms are going to be and what it's going to look like. We went yesterday to Arthur IL to meet with the cabinetmaker. Arthur is an amish community.We got there early and the gentleman we had to talk to wasn't there.Pretty soon we heard the hooves of a horse on pavement and there he was,horse and buggy.Him and his two little boys got out. There lifestyle is just so fascinating to me. They live so simply. He is going to draw up kitchen plans for us.I can't wait to see what he comes up with.They are even going to get us prices for the trim and interior doors so that everything will match.I think we are going to go with quartersawn oak shaker style kitchen cabinets and regular oak on the interior doors and trim.The bathroom vanities will be regular oak also.He showed us pictures of the homes he did and they were beautiful. They use only solid hardwood and the craftsmanship is impecable.
Well that's it for now.When the framing starts going up,I will post more.
