  • New house...our first!!

    Well as some of you may know, hubby and I have actually started the process of having our first house built. We have been living with my mother in law for the past 5 years!! Anyways, March 1st we signed the building loan closing papers. They are estimating we should have our house built by August or September 1st!! We are so excited!!

    The house we are building is a cute 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath house with a small porch on the front. It's small but perfect for us!! We have picked out all our colors with such ease!!

    Exterior:
    • Shingles: Driftwood(brown with yellow and blue specks)
    • Siding: Sunny Maize
    • Shutters and Trim: Navy Blue
    Interior:
    • Carpet: charcoal gray(in bedrooms, living room and closets)
    • Hardwood Floor: Cherry(in kitchen and dining room)
    • Vinyl Floor: light gray "tile look"(in bathrooms and laundry room)
    • Walls: Angora
    • Counter tops: Canyon Black Marble look laminate
    • Cabinets: Autumn Blush
    We picked out our living room furniture and the girls bedroom furniture on Tuesday!! We put it on layaway. Our couch is a maroon color and the table group is black steel framed with slate tiles on top. It fits perfect with the whole theme and color palette of the house.

      I will be at our house site every week taking pictures!! My mom gave me an idea to make a scrapbook of the building process. Also I was thinking of taking it a little further too. I am going to buy a separate memory card for my camera and fill it with all the pictures and create a slide show on my digital picture frame my dad got me for my 30th birthday(this past Jan.)!!

        What a great thing to have happen to you although I am sure you have worked hard and long for the house. I like your idea of creating the slideshow of your home being built.

          What great ideas!! Its so exciting having your own place built. Esp. since this is your first house of your own! It will be a lot of work but in the end it will all be worth it!

            Welcome to the joy's of money pit ownership! Make sure you visit often and don't be afraid to ask questions and if something doesn't look right call the contractor on it and take pictures just in case... not trying to scare you but I find it amazing what some less reputable contractors/sub contractors try to get away with...

            My house is about 43 years old and I cringe every time I have to open a wall when doing remodeling/renovation/repairs... The contractor that built this place apart from not understanding the concepts of square corners or plumb walls was guilty of using downspout drain pipe for the stove exhaust, holes in the cinder block foundation caused by a truck leaf spring and boulder in the backfill... If it looks questionable call them on it (or the inspector) right away! If we ever move and have a house built believe me I'll be there with my lawn chair and a bull horn...

                Congrats! Can't wait to see pics!
                Good morning, son
                In twenty years from now
                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                And I can tell you 'bout today
                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                It was pain
                Sunny days and rain
                I knew you'd feel the same things...
