A little bit here. A lot of bit there.

I have been a little bit missing in action as of lately. Things with our house 'hit the fan! Our buyers financing fell through. Yes, after all of the expenses we did to our house, they couldn't afford it after all. I H.A.T.E. them! We lost our new home, the one we were going to move into, because those buyers lost their home and no longer wanted to move. Devastating.

But, destiny has a funny way of working itself out. We have decided to start the building process. And, we are building our dream home! It is a BEAUTIFUL 4 bedrooms upstairs, office on the main floor, and we get to choose all of our colors and updates! I can't wait to show you what I have in store for decorating our new little gem!

Here is where we started, and where we currently are:

This is a rough schedule for building a house:

  • Grading and site preparation
  • Foundation construction ( in progress )
  • Framing
  • Installation of windows and doors
  • Roofing
  • Siding
  • Rough Electrical
  • Rough Plumbing
  • Rough HVAC
  • Insulation
  • Drywall
  • Underlayment
  • Trim
  • Painting
  • Finish electrical
  • Bathroom and kitchen counters and cabinets
  • Finish plumbing
  • Carpet and flooring
  • Finish HVAC
  • Hookup to water main, or well drilling
  • Hookup to sewer or installation of a septic system
  • Punch list

The one VERY cool things, well there are many, is that my little guy gets to watch his house be built! He is very excited about this! He always asks to go see his hole!

Stay tuned to follow our building process!
