March 23, 2014
Well we finally, after 14 years of dreaming, planning, worrying, fussing, scheming and saving, signed our formal contract on Thursday, March 20th, 2014 to build our new home out in the country. A custom home that we got to design and should meet our needs, while including a dedicated space for our adult daughter and grandson to continue to live with us while she is in school full time for the next 4 years. Currently, they live in our basement in one big open space. In the new house, she'll have 3/4 of the lower level, with a family room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. Our grandson will finally have his own bedroom and place to play. We'll have the upper two levels that we'll share with our youngest daughter. Pure bliss and heaven and worth the long wait!
Our move in date will be November 1st, 2014 but our builder gave us that date as the latest. His goal is to get us in mid October, if not earlier. It feels so far away but he tell us it will go incredibly fast. For now, we'll be very busy painting, purging and packing, while he builds our new haven. Can't wait to have Christmas in our new home in the woods!
Have you ever built a new house?
Any tips to share?
