Caleb's stem wall up!






Over the weekend, Caleb and Daniel got their stem walls up! These pictures are of Caleb's, they did his first and I left before they got Daniel's finished so I don't have a picture of his yet. They are both building with the ICF, insulated concrete forms. Both of their houses will have 2nd stories, Daniel's will have a loft that will have two bedrooms and a bath upstairs. They have some really cool plans all created by themselves. Each phase they get to do is very exciting! To think that two young men can build their own homes debt free in 2010 is a huge blessing from the Lord, well it likely won't be finished in 2010 but the project in general. I hope it encourages others to seek to be debt free as well. In our almost 24 years of marriage, God has provided what we needed and way more than that, He has fulfilled desires over and beyond our needs!!!

Hopefully this coming weekend, they want to get the concrete poured in the stems and the next phase after that is to get all their plumbing in place and they will be ready for the foundation!

How's everyone on this Monday???

Wow! I checked the blog this am... then I come back and think maybe she'll have posted something... and you posted TWICE!! :D

AWESOME about the walls!!!! It is something we have been learning about lately.. doing finances GODS way! It's the ONLY way to go! Why borrow all that money when God will take care of you!?

Oh, and did I see BILLY in one of those pictures?! Okay, I didn't get to see his face but... almost!
