Foundation to Finished: July 2015

I haven’t blogged too much about our experience building a home yet, but it seems like a good time to catch up on the process so far and start sharing monthly updates on our journey along the way.

Buying a house is something I’ve looked forward to for a long time. We are finally settled enough that we want to stay in one place for the foreseeable future, so a few months ago we decided it was time to find a house. Not necessarily the perfect dream home or “forever home”… (at first, we weren’t even sure we should buy instead of rent), but after a couple months of interacting with the crazy house market here in Franklin, we decided to build our first home.
We signed on the dotted line in May, and now we’re finally breaking ground. These past two months were a whirlwind of decisions, but it’s time to sit back and watch the action unfold! We’ve been visiting the new neighborhood about once a week to see the progress of the model homes and the other houses under construction, but we’re finally starting to see some action on our own lot. Very exciting!
Here are a few highlights from the past couple months:

  1. So I have been SUPER behind on my blog-reading, and am getting caught up – how exciting!! We want to build a house too someday (though no day soon), so I’ll be sure to pick your brain whenever we get to that point…in 20 or 30 years… 😉
