Construction started

Construction on our house has started, and it’s moving very quickly!  It’s much quicker than Janie or Brian expected.  As of today, we have most exterior and interior walls in place, and expect to have a roof in the next few days.  It’s practically a full time job trying to keep up to speed with the progress (then updating all the pictures)! We’ve met several of our neighbors and everyone is very nice and excited about all the progress.

Next week, we visit with the decorator!  More decisions!

House Progress

Well, we have signed on most of the dotted lines for our house!  Our closing date is set for October 2, but that’s not 100% set in stone.  We’ve started picking colors, with brick and mortar being the first pick.  The brick looks similar to another house in the neighborhood.  We have our new address, but because we won’t use it for another six months, we’ll save it for later.  We’ll keep you posted!

Housing blues and new kitty!

Lot’s of stuff has been going on lately!  First off, we haven’t yet bought a lot so we can build a house.  Because we have gotten an extraordinary amount of rain so far this year, the builders are behind schedule.  We are patiently waiting.  Along with a slightly new look
for the site, we’ve busied ourselves making new friends and getting a new kitten.  We don’t have a name for her yet!  We don’t even have a couple of names that we like that we’re trying to decide on.  Poor little kitty.  She doesn’t have a name.

Buying a house

Janie and I have been looking into buying a house in the near future.  It’s SO stressful! Hopefully we’ll be out of the apartment by midsummer.  I hate moving in the summer, but if it means I’m out of the apartment, I’m all for it.  We’re most fond of the houses being
built at Caldwell Crossings by Gibson & Anderson. Check out their site to see all kinds of pictures of the neighborhood.  If we moved out there, we’d be in the second phase. The plan that we’re most interested in is the Dartmouth because of the side facing garage and overall floorplan.
