Final Steps Before Construction Begins...

We are well underway in our home building process. I have absolutely no experience with this process but so far we are loving it. After choosing our perfect lot of land, with at least a 1/2 acre of flat, usable space, we decided on a floor plan that would be perfect for our ever growing crew. Next, we were able to finalize all of the structural changes and make all the difficult decisions, like brick and stone color scheme. I am actually very surprised at how well Jonathan and I were able to agree on pretty much every decision.

The design center was definitely the most exciting phase so far. We booked an appointment and spent four hours choosing every finish and detail of our "forever home." There were certainly frustrating elements of the process, as every detail had a price tag attached to it, but it was also so exhilarating to get to pick exactly what we want. We had the help of a design expert so I had the comfort of knowing we couldn't make too many mistakes. 

We started with the kitchen finishes and then slowly made our way from room to room choosing every detail. I will finally have my white kitchen and farmhouse sink! I am so excited to see how all of our choices will's like a puzzle and unfortunately, we have to wait 6 months to see it all complete. I find it hard not to want to drive by our lot every day to see the progress. They should be starting the foundation sometime this week or next. 

I look forward to updating as things move along.
