Hello.

Not many posts recently because things have not been moving too quickly on the house. But that has changed.

We are two months out (hopefully) and the builder has focused all attention on our project. Take note...a small builder, meaning only 10 houses per year, only works with a small crew. So you have to wait in line.

Anyhow, we are up next so things are moving faster. Brick and stone are going up (hope to have pictures tomorrow) and my attention is moving to A\V, security, roof and tile.

The stress hasn't let up. Maybe it's the fact that I have to start paying for all of this

Here are some better pictures. This is the front.


This is the side.

This is the back.

And this is from the kitchen looking towards the family room.

Hello again. Time for another update/download.

Well the builder is at least a month late.

The exterior of the house is well done. The back patio is being built as we speak. The landscaping, driveway, etc. won't be done until spring.

What have I learned in the past 10 months?
  1. A 100% custom home is a big pain in the A$$
  2. If DW and I can get through this, we can conquor anything.
  3. No matter what you think, when buiding a house you will definately go over budget by at least 20%
  4. I thought I had good design sense. But trust the experts. Let them design.

Those are just some quick thoughts.

We are dying to get into the house now. Things are getting stressful here at the rental.

Holidays, close quarters, kids, activities, driving to and from school (we are renting out of our school district)...whew!!

Drywall is up. Paint colors picked. Flooring 80% done. We're coming down the home stretch.

It's been fun, challenging, stressful, humbling, educational...and there's more to come.

I'll post a video soon.

Thanks everyone.
