  1. Thanks for the fast and furious posts, lately, Virginia!
    I love a good long soak in the tub with a good book so this round really speaks to me. Can't go wrong with any of the choices!

  3. I thought you must have been down to the cabin when I saw all the new pink flamingos down by the fence — think they may have been checking out the site for the new boat dock – that is some boat package you have included – My grandson and his father would so love this – if they could get past arguing over what they were going to do ski or fish! I was glad to see that one flamingo is still keeping an eye on the construction up by the kitchen. I still marvel at the whole moving the house and reconfiguration – what an incredible creation you all are making… guess you can make a silk purse out of a sows ear! I like the natural fibers being used in all the bath choices especially the organic cotton & teak hamper. Thank you for the cam – it is great to watch the transformation even if it is only from one angle.

  4. Good Morning blogging friends. My town got to 65 degrees yesterday, so I am feeling relatively good. No arthritis pain this morning – WOO HOO! LOL
    Anyway, I saw the really neat line of flamingos. We know that Laurie (or Mama Flamingo) has arrived. She is so awesome! I also am adoring the siding on the house more everyday. It is just everything I could ever want. Did anyone notice the wires next to the french doors? I believe they will be attached to outdoor lights. I am hoping that they will have some copper on them that will keep it running thru the house design. Just thinking again.
    Anyway, so loving the choices we are voting on (except the apricot stuff, like I said before), I am loving the house, I am loving the flamingos, and I am loving the blogging with you all. Have a wonderful day, and as always stay safe.

  5. When do we start entering to win the home? I'm am very excited right now. I'd like to share some news with you bloggers. Around Christmas I submitted a letter for a local contest to a company that was giving away a free roof for Christmas, and a couple days ago I got a call that the other winner was deemed ineligable so I won a brand new free roof to be put on my old home next week!!!! Heavenly Father has blessed me with this wonderful gift.i have a renewed sense of anything is possible through god and dreams. Keep believing everyone

  6. It was lovely seeing the flamingoes waiting for the dock to be built. And now they are all out of the way of big bad tires, too! Keep up the good work Laurie (and Dylan). We are so glad you keep doing this!

  7. I was just watching the cabin cam. The house is looking wonderful. They have been working on trim and it is giving the back an more cottage look. The trim has been put between the windows and around the bottom of the house is a cream trim. Looks great! Also all the siding is up around the electrical wires for the outside light. Wow I am loving this house more and more every day.I want it , I want it, I want it. I think that was a mini tantrum…… Forgive me but did I say I want it.Lol

    • Based on comments made about the original home I expect CORBELS to be incorporated which would add some charm to the new BC.

      MAOW on April 11, 2014 at 10:20 am
    • That would be fine but either way I think it is great.

      Joyce in NJ on April 11, 2014 at 10:28 am
    • Corbels are shown on the 3D video. :)

    • I understand your tantrum, sometimes feel that way myself – LOL

  8. I watching the men working this morining under the roof just to the left of the new doors I noticed that at the roof line just under the second floor windows that looks rather ruff. Is there to be some trim that needs to be place there yet? The flashing was already there before the roof went on. It just looks unfinished to me. Someene else check it out. see what you think.

    • Funny, I noticed this several days ago and I was just ready to post this same question. I also wondered about the strips on all the roof peaks and wondered why they don't go all the way to the edge. I don't recall every seeing strips like this on roofs before.

      LAUDGIRL on April 11, 2014 at 11:43 am
    • Those are the roof vents

      Jay Michajluk on April 11, 2014 at 10:04 pm
    • I think what you may be seeing is roofing cement (aka "tar") used to seal the top course of shingles to the flashing. The shingles themselves look fine and the look of this will fade as the aluminum flashing oxidizes.

      Ralebird on April 11, 2014 at 12:45 pm
    • The siding flashing is not on under the upstairs windows. I can still see the house wrap, so the flashing will slide right up under the siding, and snugly over the shingles. It will look very finished when it is completed. They probably are short of flashing, of this color. I have used steel flashing that matches the shingles, or siding, and you barely know it is there.

    • OK – lets keep watching.

      Jay Michajluk on April 11, 2014 at 10:06 pm
  9. Looks like the 5 flamingos have turned their attention to the lake and away from the house. Are they expecting things to come in that direction or just watching a man in a boat fishing this morining? Wondering myself if he is catching anything, and what? I will have to rememb er that spot for future reference.

    Jay Michajluk on April 11, 2014 at 11:04 am
    • The lake is a bass fishery according to Florida Wildlife Dept.

      AnniesOwn on April 11, 2014 at 11:31 am
    • I wonder if you are a land owner on the lake do you need a fishing license to fish in it.

      Jay Michajluk on April 11, 2014 at 10:02 pm
  10. I just noticed a flamingo hanging out in the dirt near the kitchen. He obviously doesn't care that it is a dangerous construction zone. LOL
