Are you looking for Bible verses to write during construction for a new build home? 2023 has been a year full of blessings. One of the biggest ones is that we started building our new home. It felt like the opportunity came out of no where. And I’m still catching up to fully understand how we got here. But from the moment we realized we would be building our new home, I knew I wanted to write some of my favorite Bible verses on the framing during construction.
Blessing Our New Home and Writing Bible Verses on the Framing During Construction
Unless someone offers me an amazing deal on a piece of land that comes with some chickens and a couple of rescued barn animals… I don’t plan on moving again. That’s why I wanted to leave a mark on the framing, and also ask the Lord to bless our home and plans for our family for this next season.
We had such a special time on Labor Day weekend filling the new build house with my favorite verses and blessings. I also invited my parents to join us. They were just as intentional when picking what to write on the walls of the new house. From the mud room to the living room, and the front entryway to the upstairs halls… Every few steps you could find a verse if you looked.
This new house has office spaces for both of us, multiple bedrooms upstairs that we hope to fill with guests and kids, and a bigger yard for our dogs to run in. I picked out Bible verses for each room, and was thoughtful with what I wanted to write over those spaces. I’ll list out some of my favorite verses that we chose to write during construction below.

There are so many more bible verses you could write for your new build home. These are just a handful of the ones we wrote.
Our Goodall Homes Construction Process
We chose to build our new home in Tennessee through Goodall Homes. We’ve been so happy with the building process, and it’s truly been an enjoyable experience. The day we went to sign the contract to start the new build process, I asked if we could walk out to the home site one last time. Our sales consultant, Emily, walked out with us. To our surprise there was a rainbow directly over our home site.
I was anxious about making such a big decision. But that rainbow felt like a sign that we were taking the right step in faith. I’m so grateful the Lord knows exactly what we need and when we need it, and He shows up for us in tangible ways.
This new house is a dream through and through. I can’t wait to get to call this place home before the end of the year.
I’m a photographer in Nashville who specializes in milestones and family memories. Documenting this construction process has brought me so much joy. I’m grateful I’ll have these memories to look back on. If you’re a family in Tennessee and are building a home, moving or experiencing a big milestone or life transition, don’t forget to capture it! I’d love to come alongside your family and capture your next milestone. You can learn more about Nashville lifestyle family photography here.
