Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, when I realized I only had two weeks to construct the house. Yikes! As a Christmas present to me, my mom advanced me $75 to spend on building materials. Then she spent an undisclosed amount of money to ship out a truckload of crafty materials to use in the process. She also collaborated on the planning process. Best Christmas present ever, mom!
Construction began in the evenings, after Abby was in bed. I soon realized that I could work on bits and pieces during the day without Abby figuring out what I was doing (and even get her to help!). I managed to pull together a mostly complete house, though it is not even 50% of what I would have loved to have done. The good news is I can keep working on it, and Abby can help, for years to come!
These pictures are mostly for my mom, who has so far only seen crappy phone pictures, but have a look if you like!
(I think if you mouse over the pictures below, it will tell you details about it's content).
Abby and I started a list of additional things that need to be added. I think I need to build an addition to contain everything on the list! We started right away, and built this changing table yesterday.
