My husband had a blog that chronicled our building experience with photos, but it seems to have been lost in the nether of the internet.
The clearing of our lot began in November/December of 2008. We closed on our home in March of 2009.
It is an Adams Builders Craftsman two-story plan. This sketch was basically what I had to go on to get the gist of what it would look like. There was no home like this in our town so I couldn't walk through it; ours was the first (and I think, still only) home to be built with these features.
It would be fun, at some point (when my house is clean!) to do before and after photos of the interior.
