Those house pics I promised

Sorry about the delay, I seem to have lost my motivation. Not for lack of progress on the house, that's going great. We have the framing walkthrough tomorrow - the next step after that is drywall/exterior.

So here's how it went:
- This is the lot we picked:
Not the greatest picture, but the lot is what sold me on this place. There's a walking path between our lot and the ones behind, and just past our lot it opens up into a green space that will have a pond in it. And past the green space is a valley with cows and farmer's fields
and since it's low-lying, it will never be developed for housing. It's win-win. With cows!

- Then the foundation hole got dug, and sat there for 2-3 weeks. Mocking us.

- Then things started moving, they set up foundation forms:
(and this one, that has another awesome view)
which got poured a few days later:
And then it looked like this:

- Then a couple days after, they started framing things up. The floor joists went in:
then a day or two later, walls went up:

That's all the pictures I have at the moment, more to come. The stuff since (roof, shingles, plumbing, wiring, etc.) has gone in within the last two weeks, so it's moving really quickly. We lucked out with the builder, they have all their ducks in a row. I like ducks.
