I’m building a house!

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks. After dragging the poor kids around open house after open house every weekend since we’ve been here, we realised we wanted to build our own place. We found a community we like, a builder and a floorplan. We got a price for what we wanted. We signed the papers. And then the builder realised they’d quoted us the wrong price for the options we wanted and we had to figure out whether we wanted to pay the higher price or not. After a long week of considering our options we decided to still go ahead, and finally signed the new contract yesterday.

I’m excited. After all the headaches and tears I’m actually looking forward to getting started. We picked our brick and stone today and will head to the design center to pick out everything else next week. Hopefully we’ll be in before the lease on our apartment is up…
