Oh man, cue all the happy tears! After *years* of effort Brandon and I are finally ready to share that we are building our custom dream home! We literally drew our house out with paper and pencil and our amazing builders (more on them soon!!) brought our dream to life. This new home will be a completely custom 5 bedroom 3.5 bath house that is EXACTLY what we want and need. Every subtle detail has been thought out, discussed and hashed out over the course of more than a year and designed perfectly for our taste and lifestyle. Up until now there were quite a few hypotheticals and details up in the air (thank you covid/quarantine/pandemic/economy shift) but at this point we are only waiting on our official closing date and then construction begins!
It took some serious effort to get to this day (getting ourselves to be debt free being the hardest and most rewarding step) and figuring out how to finance a new construction loan within our set budget in addition to the mortgage we currently carry on the house/property we own now was complicated. Logistically there are some hoops and steps we’ll need to take during the process (transferring residency to the new build and then tearing down this old house!) and it’s going to be so much fun to document the whole process!
It could get a little messy living right next to a new construction home build but it will also be so amazing to see it all come together. I think the girls will absolutely love being a part of the whole process and watching our forever home materialize over the course do the next 10 months or so.
Since I’ve basically stopped blogging as a career these house update posts will strictly be for fun and for informational purposes. Nothing is sponsored, every penny spent is our own.
2020 is looking up.
