I’ve been so caught up in everything else I forgot to update – We got the house! Well, the soon to be house! Everything worked out and we got the big corner lot we wanted, the floor plan we wanted, and we picked out all the details like the external brick, the hardware, cabinets, floors, etc. last Friday! I love driving by and seeing a big red SOLD sign in the dirt where our house will be! Construction began on Sunday. The work-up:

Thank you! 🙂 We looked like crazy people last night when we went and stood in the dirt and I was crying because I’m so happy! We worked really really hard and sacrificed big time so that we could buy a house with enough room and a good sized yard for our future kiddos… So I’m sort of emotional about it 🙂
We hit a low point (if you’ve read my other threads) where the contract was messed up, there were other offers on the property, and we thought they would counter offer with something higher than we could afford. I was SO upset. We went out there one last time to look before we decided whether or not to move on, and I found a 100 dollar bill half buried in the dirt! It must’ve been some kind of sign because we got a call the next day with the news – Our offer had been accepted!

Congratulations!!! That is a beautiful house! Keep us up to date on the construction and progress.
We are building too and construction started two weeks ago! I was the same way before it started, we kept going to the site and looking like idiots grinning at the big pile of dirt. Now we go every day and take pictures of the progress and we’re hoping to have a nice slide show to put together when it’s done. I believe there are a couple bees on the boards that are building right now, we should swap progress reports!
