We are now finally gearing up for the permitting process. If all goes well we will break ground in October this year and be done at the end of next year or in Spring 2016. We were originally going to just to the craft cabin then start house later but because of permitting complications we are now doing the house and then probably starting the craft cabin/man cave a few months after the house is done maybe in September 2016 it will take 8-12 months to finish once it is started.
I am hoping that the house will be done in November next year so we can spend Christmas there but am thinking it will probably not be. Maybe it will be done in time to celebrate Zoe’s 11h birthday there. I do know I am going to try and plan a house warming when we are done.
I have kind of been over the whole house thing because it is taking so long and I am no longer excited. I am trying to get back into the excitement mode and hope that once it gets rolling again it does not stall out. I do enjoy going to the property and sitting by the pond. We grew flowers and some veggies this year too.. It is a great place for the kids to run around. I think once the house is done I will enjoy sitting on the deck watching the kids in the yard. We can get splash pool for them and they can have hours of fun in the yard. I would like to be able to put a play set in for them and maybe a small sports court too so they can really have fun and have friends over often.
I also hope when our house is done it is the place for many gatherings and game nights. I have warned Steve that if we are going to have such a great house for entertaining I will want to use it.
