House Progress is Slow but Steady

We are building a shed. It's almost done and looks exactly like this one...I just have any pictures of ours yet. I think all that is missing is the doors.
We worked on the roof today and it was very HOT. I can't wait until it's done and we start filling it with tools and other house building supplies(it's exciting).
The electrical permit was sent off yesterday so we should be getting power in the next 2 wks or so. Then we can pour in our footings...start building the stone walls. I can see our home very clearly.It's very romantic...made to be a haven and shelter but it will look more like a fortress or castle.
It's not a pop up over night house but like one of those videos of flowers have to speed it up to see anything happen. I hope you will pray for us that we have wisdom building this house. Isaiah is doing a lot of research online and books. While we work I pray "Lord please give my husband wisdom, show him anything he forgot or missed, and let this house be a blessing to all who enter it."

"Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:"

A lot of people would get a loan slam bam a house up and make payments on it for most of their life....not us.
Patience is our strength. Our house might get done next yr or in 3yrs. Slow but steady...every day do something little to make progress debt free. Yes, I know we are crazy :)
It's nice to make progress no matter how little it is.
