We've gone from this to this:
We have been so blessed this past year! We were given the opportunity to build our own home and the journey has been nothing short of amazing.
In October of 2011, we were leaving soccer and drove past a sign for a new neighborhood to be built. We knew the builder and commented that the neighborhood would be a nice place. Fast forward a couple of weeks and a dirt road pops up in the neighborhood. We decide to take a look. As luck would have it, one of the agents was there with a 4 wheeler/tractor thing. He rides us to the back of the neighborhood and we walk around a few of the lots. Then, every weekend for the next month, we go back out there and walk the lots. We planned and we dreamed, and then, we made it a reality!
I'll lay the process out in a series of posts, along with my tips, but here is an overview to show just how far we have come.
So excited for the next round of changes over the next 5 weeks or so.....and then it is MOVE IN day! And lots of posts about organizing and decorating.....can't wait!
