Our friends’ home building project is moving right along. (I’m way behind on updates, sorry!) Since the last time I updated, the walls have been framed, the metal roof added, and the exterior walls have been closed up:
Nice high, sloped ceilings. 9′ in the front half of the house, up to 12′ here in the back of the house.
I love how the house looks from the back. That beautiful deck looks out over Shelby Park where we can sit to watch the tides roll in next time we have a flood. Just kidding. But we will definitely be spending a lot of time under that sloped roof. I heard a rumor that Leila and J might even be installing an outdoor TV and surround sound stereo system out there…
The front of the house looks… well… I think it’ll look great once the stairs and landscaping are added.

WOW! It looks great! I live in Nashville (Inglewood) too and it is great to see people making strides. I love how the back deck’s roof is slanted- it’s very unique and a great idea!
By the way, I enjoy reading your site and seeing your home projects- My boyfriend and I renovated our 1950 home in May 2010 but still kept the 1950 charm. It was a LOT of work but very rewarding. Good luck on your fence project too!
