A House Update!

  • We're Almost Done!

We get asked the same two questions these days… when is the baby due and when is the house going to be done. The next question is “So you’re moving in BEFORE the baby comes right?!”. Thank goodness yes. Our move-in date has been pushed back from Thanksgiving, but we WILL be moved in before the baby comes! One of the first people we told about the baby was our builder, because we wanted him to know we had a hard deadline!!! We should be moving in after just a few more weeks if we don’t experience a major roadblock of some kind! We are SO excited!

The House Plans

  • Our Contemporary Farmhouse

We have had so many requests to share our house plans and so today is the day! We can’t share high-res, super detailed plans simply because plans and designs cost money, and we don’t want to get in trouble with our architect and draftsmen! You may have heard us share on our pregnancy announcement video that we are building the SAME HOUSE that we built 3.5 years ago. Before you think we’re crazy, let me explain our thought process. So first of all, our house didn’t sell for over 10 months. We thought that we would be building over a year ago, but God had different plans!

We’ve Been Framed!

  • House Building Update

We knew from building our last house that the framing stage makes everything seem REAL! But the crazy thing about this house is that a lot of the framing that came to life the last two weeks was designed on my laptop in PHOTOSHOP!!! I literally moved the garage and twisted it forward in photoshop by adding a new layer and then our builder sent it to their draftsmen and now it’s literally sitting on our field…. my photoshop file has come to life! It’s the craziest thing!!!
