The builders have made some serious progress on our house since the last time I posted a picture, so here's the updates. This is our downstairs (or as much of it as could be captured in one photo). The short slanty wall you see on the far left is the breakfast bar, so the photo is taken from the kitchen, looking out at the rest of the house. The closest room is the family room. The wall you see separates the family room and the study (aka "red room). There's a bathroom between the study and the stairs, but you can't really see it because of the support beam. On the far (left) side of the stairs, you can (kind of) see the great room.
This is the upstairs, although I think it's kind of hard to tell what's what. You're looking at an assortment of bedrooms, closets, and a bathroom. Overall, the upstairs has 5 bedrooms (I know, we're ridiculous), 2 full bathrooms, and an open area "game room" at the top of the stairs, which kind of feels like an upstairs family room. Our objective in building this house was to have lots of spare space, since we outgrew our current house far more quickly than we imagined possible and we really, really don't want to have to move again any time in the forseeable future.

This is the basement, which admittedly does not show up all that well due to the lack of light. The house obviously doesn't have electricity yet, so the only light in the basement comes through the one big window. Aside from the window, the stairs, some hookups so we can eventually install a sink, and some metal support beams, the basement is completely empty and will stay that way for a good long time. I would imagine that for a good while after we move in, it will just be storage.
