Remember me? Sorry I’ve been gone so long. Had a bit of a rough year but things are looking up and I’m ready to take you on a journey.
First of all, I have to thank all of you that checked up on me the last few months. You’ll never know how much that meant to me. Things were chaotic around here and I just didn’t have anything to blog about. Well, I did…but you probably wouldn’t have been interested in my super clean house and my complete meltdowns. That was due to the fact that we put our house on the market in March and it finally sold a few weeks ago.
This is all a good thing. We decided to stay in Bend and downsize and after looking at a million (at least) re-sale houses, we decided to build exactly what we want.
Funny thing. The house is pretty much a smaller version of our current house. The whole design process with the architect was so much fun. We both thought it would be stressful, but so far, so good. The plans will go to the city for permits next week and we might be able to break ground the first part of December. The best part of it all? The buyers have agreed to let us rent back until next May when, hopefully, construction will be completed!
Here’s the lot and view.
See the mountains? That’s what I will look at from my sewing room! Yippee.
So, I’ll be taking you on the home building journey. We’ll be there the day they break ground and all the days thereafter.
Next up: pictures of Quilt Market. And after that, I’ll show you pictures from the past 8 months or so.
