BIG News!!!

Although it won't look quite like this (although that would be quite a tree house idea for later-haha)-we are getting a house built-starting tonight!! I haven't posted sooner because it seems like we have gone back and forth so much so I didn't want to get my hopes up. However, it is a go-I bought the building permit today and we met the financial backer and builder last night. We should be closed on it by November 15th-yea!!! I will hate moving again, but at least it will be into our home and hopefully we won't have to do it again for quite awhile. It will be a 1552 sq ft home over an unfinished basement with a walkout and an over sized garage. I will admit that this whole process has been overwhelming at times, but we really feel like the lord has blessed us with this opportunity and since it was too good to walk away from we took the plunge. Soon we will be HOMEOWNERS, I can't believe it after several moves and apartments-but I couldn't be more excited!! We are going modern/traditional inside with some cool details. The outside will be siding with slate rock. We have it all pretty much hashed out and I hope it all works out like it has in my head :0). I will post more details as we get them!!
Happy news for all my friends!

How fun! Building a house is stressful but fun too....if you don't kill eachother first :) I wanna see some updates on how it starts to come along.

That is so fast- ours took twice that long!! I'm so happy for you though, getting into a house is so much fun. I have to agree with Melissa that while building is a blast, it causes some stress! You are so talented; I'm sure it will be beautiful.

So, for a second I thought the BIG news might be something else! ;) That is cool though! Hopefully, someday I will be making a similar announcement!
