The first room I wanted to decorate was my boys’ room. I wanted them to move in and be excited about their new home. I wanted them to come in and see their new room, finished. It didn’t of course work out this way, even with the extra month of time to move in, but… Continue reading A Room Just for Boys – Project #1
Hello there! It’s been awhile since I’ve written. Okay, it’s been a very long while! Well part of that is because we got the key to officially move in to our new home almost exactly a month after my last post, March 24.

It’s time to catch up so I can post about all the fun things that are happening right now, like cabinets, tile, and flooring! January 14 – The siding was complete! We have Hardie Board Siding in the Arctic White color. In certain light it has a gray tint to it which I kinda like.… Continue reading Time to Catch up!

I was warned there would be lots of decisions to make when building a house! Since we had a lot of time between planning to build and actually starting to build, a lot of the big decisions have been made, such as the flooring and kitchen layout and cabinets. It turns out though, there are still so… Continue reading Decisions, Decisions!
We were asked to decide the exact location of our house early in the process so that the drain field could be determined to work properly and the site map could be completed for the county. It wasn’t easy for me or my husband to completely visualize in the middle of the woods how our cleared site and house location would… Continue reading A House in Sight
This past week was a roller coaster ride of emotions for us. We had excitement, sadness, and joy all in one week and sometimes even all in one day. The first day we saw the clearing for the drive and house we also received the sad news that my husband’s Granny had passed away. I… Continue reading Breaking Ground
If you read my last post then you know that after searching for the perfect house my husband and I finally found a classic farmhouse design called the Glenview Cottage. It’s a Moser Design Group plan and named by Southern Living who sells many of their floor plans, including the popular Sugarberry Cottage. My favorite… Continue reading Floor Plans
