0612 house0614 house0614 house2I know this is usual when houses are being built but, still, the sudden appearance of walls took my breath away!  It seems so real now.  And so, so exciting.

Remember when I thought the house was going to be too small?  It’s amazing how some walls suddenly put things in perspective.  I can start to picture things now – where the furniture might go, the paths we will take from room to room.  The living we will do there.  I think there will be space enough for all of it.

Jack, our builder, said that the trusses are set to be delivered on the 23rd – just next week! – so they will be working like crazy to have the second story done on time.  By the end of this month we should have a house with walls and rooms and a roof!

The beginnings of our home.

      Thank you! It is exciting, but really nerve wracking too, especially since I am a bit of a perfectionist and also very bad at making decisions 😛

    I would *love* to hear more about how you are making this happen – are you living on the property in something temporary while this is happening? How did you keep this affordable? Any tips ‘n’ tricks for how you’re doing this all ? 🙂

    (I’m trying to catch up on old posts but couldn’t figure it out, just saw the happy couple in front of the burning house, haha)
