On another note, I find the whole process pretty ridiculous. Like Brandi, we had trouble with our appraisal. Also, they don’t give you money to start the process. You have to have a certain percentage of the project completed before they shell out any funds. It’s got to be a well-choreographed dance for bills to be paid. I think Kyle may actually get a few gray hairs from this process. Our tentative completion of the house is around the middle/end of April. Let’s all pray for good weather!
We signed the papers on December 30, 2011. The fellas started work bright and early on the following Monday grading off the place. It’s kind of been an unbelievable experience so far. I’m still a little dazed and unaware that it’s actually happening. I say that I’m unaware, until I arrive home every afternoon to see the progress.
Over the past 3 ½ weeks (minus a couple of days due to weather) we have gone from a graded lot to actually having walls up! Walls, let me say it again…walls!
Here’s a little photo timeline of the progress.
The prettiest holes I've ever seen...
AK HAD to dance on her new "stage"
and just be so darn cute...
This will be where my chimney will be. I can't wait!
First wall up! I almost cried when I saw it when I got home from work.
My front porch, so far my favorite part of my house!
