New House

So as of now, we're under contract on our new house and are getting all the administrivia in order. Soon, we'll meet with the design center to pick out colors, cabinetry, flooring, and all that jazz, and permits will be acquired by the builder so that the foundation can be poured. I want to catalog the progress on the new house here on The Mer Show so that Sheridan and I will always be able to look back at the excitement (and probably some heartache) that building a house will provide us and our family.

So here's where we are right now... an empty lot! :) We hope that we're able to keep some of those oak trees that pepper the property; I guess it'll depend on how far back the house will need to be built on the lot. We're excited to be building on the corner of a cul de sac, and at the end of the cul de sac is a large area of empty (and beautiful) land that should provide our little kids a lot of fun space to explore. (Let's hope there are no snakes back there!)

So here's where our future home will be:

View of the lot from the back (see the car in front, on the street?)

Our future neighbors' lots, on the same side of the street (there are only 2)

Our future neighbors across the street

View at the end of the cul de sac - open field. Ahhhhh, space!!!
