A personal post today...one that takes you a bit on our journey to find the perfect home for our family. It was a 3+ year search, countless open houses and showings. I lost track of how many offers we made before we gave up a bit. It certainly gets frustrating after awhile...
Then last spring a piece of land pops up on the market! Honestly the only plot left in town within walking distance to main street and the town park! YAY! We get to build the home of our dreams! Of course we jumped on it and after a few months we closed on our land! It was an exciting time for our little family!
I'm so excited for the fun to REALLY begin...all those little finishing touches that make a home, our home! I can't wait to share with you all what we have planned in making this the home of our dreams!!! Catch some sneak peeks on my Instagram page. My handy husband is doing most of the finishing touches himself (tile work, hardwood floors, banisters, some carpentry and more!) It should be an interesting ride over the next few months!! Stay tuned for all the details!! I look forward to welcoming you all into our home! xoxo
I'm not going to lie and say that everything fell exactly into place and we didn't hit some bumps along the way...I won't bore you with all the details but construction came to a crashing halt in the fall...we had some major soil issues that took a few months to resolve (and the harsh winter didn't help!) But finally, finally I am so excited to share that progress has been made and we are moving right along!
We chose the Stone Creek plan by Southern Living and I can't be more thrilled how everything is turning out. It was modified a bit for our family and needs and the biggest modification was the detaching the garage. I was a little reluctant about that a first but it certainly gave us more house space and fit in with the style and character of the other homes in our neighborhood. Here's a peek at the exterior of the house...
