Movin On Up...

...Upstairs They started construction on the elevator last week
There will be doors where those windows are now
This was the noisy part, busting up the stucco
Today they framed the elevator shaft. I'm getting really excited. I haven't been upstairs since June 2007. It's getting close. Brynn, you better clean your room.

Wow, an elevator!! That sounds like an 'Extreme Home Makeover' thing! How exciting! (Though I think I'd be a little scared having not been up there in so long)

Wow, I didn't realize your leg was that bad that you couldn't go up the stairs. So sorry! How cool to have an elevator in your house!!!

Bridget said...

Sorry to hear you haven't been able to climb your stairs. Happy for you that you get an elevator!

My dad's house has an elevator because his wife's mother lives in their mother-in-law suite and needs it. Whenever my kids are there visiting they get the biggest kick out of it. It's like an amusement park ride for them.

That's AWESOME. Your kids will be able to brag that they have the only house on the block with an elevator. Aren't they lucky.

An in home elevator, how cool! Your house is going to be the talk of the primary. I can hear it now "Sis. Naylor has an elevator ride inside her house!"

Can my kids come over and play in your elevator? They would die to have an elevator in the house, isn't that every kids dream?! Diane, you are living the dream!

I'm so mad Melissa commented first because my kids will seriously want to come play in the elevator (mostly just pushing the buttons and watching the door open and close :)) I'm so excited for you - hopefully the loud banging has stopped at least during nap time :)

Harper Family said...

Wow, that is neat that your doing that. It will be fun to try out when it is done.

Kristina said...

Hi Diane! I must admit I've been checking out your blog for a while. And I have to say it's so fun. you always have the wittiest entries. I love your 'shoesday' entry and your comments on your inner cha-cha! :) Anyway, fun bumping into you! Oh, and awesome you're getting an elevator. I want one in my house just to give my kids something fun to do.
