Project Restoration:: A Video Tour of the Framed House

by Edie Wadsworth on May 13, 2011

View from the boat (taken with Stevie’s iphone)

Warning: Do not watch the following videos if you are prone to motion sickness. Or if you are prone to outbursts of violence at dorky girls giving tours.
Or if you, in general, have any other noble or pressing tasks. This is mindless banter. You are about to waste a good 8 minutes of your life. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. AND… voice is annoying. But hey, roof trusses call for a celebration. This is like a party for me. Humor me internet friends.

 Progress! Yay!

I can’t believe how quickly the house is coming on! 

Are all houses in your area built with wood?  Houses over here are mainly stone with wood becoming more trendy.
Have a great weekend Edie. xx

 I love this! I could also be a job site groupie…although my profession as an interior designer kinda requires me to be! Nothing like the smell of sawdust to get you going in the morning. :) :)  Thanks for taking us along for the ride.

You must be so excited watching the progress each day!!! It’s amazing how quickly it’s moving along. Love the videos. I think your voice sounds soothing. I don’t recommend watching it on a teeny, tiny Ipod. Where’s the Dramamine? LOL

thank you sweet ruth! oh i’m sure the motion sickness is worse on the little screen!


6 the farmer's wife May 13, 2011 at 1:04 pm

 Edie!  I love your floor plan.  Thanks for sharing the process!  Congratulations on your cozy new home!


7 Taylor N. May 13, 2011 at 1:12 pm

 Edie, I am SO excited for you. What beautiful lang you live on. And I’m sure the house will be just as majestic. From my reader’s point of view, things seem to be moving along quickly! Congratulations.


8 KATE May 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm

wow!  It looks great! It must be so nice to have it come together so quickly (although I am sure that some days it may not feel so quick!)

thanks for the little tour!


9 Natalie D. May 13, 2011 at 1:38 pm

Absolutely beautiful! Will you help me design my home plans?!!  Great layout!  


10 edie wadsworth May 14, 2011 at 9:57 am

thanks natalie! i know, and we’re still changing things, almost daily. at least while they’re framing, it’s not too huge of a hassle!


11 Southern Gal May 13, 2011 at 1:39 pm

12 Marie May 13, 2011 at 2:15 pm

13 Lisa May 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

22 Ami M. Davis May 13, 2011 at 10:23 pm

 Don’t tell the builders…but as soon as that roof is set I would have my sleeping bags out there for a little sleepover.  It’s absolutely gorgeous!  


23 edie wadsworth May 14, 2011 at 12:45 am

i know ami, i’ve been scheming about getting a small fridge onto the back deck and a charcoal grill. heck, i’ve even threatened to pitch a tent. hope you’ll come visit when it’s finished :)


24 Susan May 13, 2011 at 11:46 pm

So happy for you and your family! The house is going to be gorgeous!


25 Melissa Stover May 14, 2011 at 12:39 am

i watched all 8 minutes! so exciting. i hope you’ll do it again when it’s all finished.  you ARE so close to the road. do you have any yard at all to mow?


26 edie wadsworth May 14, 2011 at 12:44 am

yes on the other side. it’s a quiet little peninsula so it doesn’t bother us—but it is literally ON the road. you HAVE to come visit.


27 Melissa Stover May 14, 2011 at 12:47 am

oh i want to. you have plenty of spare bedrooms for me and my psychological


28 edie wadsworth May 14, 2011 at 12:49 am

yes, and i won’t fuss if you leave all your lids off and i won’t make you eat vegetables.


29 Melissa Stover May 14, 2011 at 12:51 am

34 Jane May 15, 2011 at 12:52 am

So good to see and hear. Love the birds singing.


35 LLH Designs May 15, 2011 at 1:06 am

I love the birds chirping in the background! My 8-year-old daughter Watched skme of these videos and said “I would pay them a thousand, no a TRILLION daollars, for that house!” She loves your views…and especially loves the reading loft. I told her she might not like the way God has sent this new house your way, but she said this will be better than what you had before. From the mouths of babes. {wink!}

Blessings and love,


36 Sassy May 15, 2011 at 5:17 am

Now I can really see why you fell in love with this site. So beautiful. You can already feel the love that is going into the house and it’s just as you said “sticks.” I am so pleased to see it moving along so well. And everyone else is wanting to visit and only say lovely things about the house. But I want to say that your Chris Farley comment was the best part of these videos. ;-)


37 Denise Voccola May 16, 2011 at 12:38 am

What fun!  I loved the video tours.  I should meet you out there for lunch one day after this week is over!  :)


38 edie wadsworth May 16, 2011 at 1:20 am

i’d love it!!


39 Julie Corcoran May 16, 2011 at 3:10 pm

Well aren’t you just movin’ right along! Lookin’ fab, dear! I have been so encouraged by your faith throughout all of this. God Bless!


40 Judy T May 17, 2011 at 3:21 am

 So happy for you Edie. Loved the video’s which will be a great reminder of God’s great work and how far you have come.
Just one question – what kind of video cam do you have and do you recommend it?
Many blessings to you and yours,


41 Ruth May 20, 2011 at 11:19 am

 Wow, Edie, it looks great!  I can’t believe how quickly it is going, though I’m sure it doesn’t seem fast enough to you!  And your commentary cracked me up.  You are so adorable I could die.  And speaking of which, I am DYING to see the square dance photos.  Post them soon, PLEASE! :-)  xoxo
