New House Incoming

I think most of my family is aware that my wife and I are building a new house, but thought that some people might be interested, and not know yet, so here's your notice. :)

The new place will be South and a little West of where we are now, but in a similar area. We will have a real guest room, unlike the current house which has a room that can be used as a guest room. Will have a triple car garage, so that we can actually fit two vehicles in there. Looks to be about 2600 square feet, with a 500 square foot bonus room above the garage, and an unfinished basement.

We have obtained the building permits, and are now just waiting for them to become active, and the builder to be ready to start. The plan is to start about the middle of May, with a completion of late October / early November. Needless to say, we're starting to get excited as things are getting closer to actually starting. :)


  1. Ooh, congratulations! I'm sure it will be wonderful.

    And I suppose I should say 'best wishes' or 'good luck' here too, since I hear building a house can be a stressful experience. Hopefully it all goes as smoothly as can be!

  2. wow total out of the loop on this one.

    Congrats, make sure you get the cat5 run during construction.

  3. It's actually a relative of a friend that will be doing the building, so we have some leeway with what we're doing. Like finding our own plumber, and electrician, and like me running lots of cat6 through the whole house.
