So, to start this blog with a
Okay, let's get this series started!
How did we get to the point to think about building a house???
To make a long story a bit shorter, it all started back in 2010 when we found a house for sale that we loved. We weren't married OR engaged yet, but we were living together in Travis' fixer-upper house. The only reason he saw this dream home was because of a new subdivision going in within the view of our old house. He was intrigued since it was up on the hill and he went to check it out.
He was in love. The layout was perfect, the view was amazing, the upgrades were awesome, and the best part, it was affordable. He was not in the market to purchase a new home, but once he saw it, he knew it would be perfect for us. He took me up to show me, and of course, I was smitten as well. It is pretty hard not to like a brand new home, but this one was special. Seriously.
Since the old house was as fixed up as Travis was going to make it, we put it on the market and put a contingency offer on the new home. That meant that we would buy the house if our old house sold. Well, 9 months passed before we sold the house and the new dream house had obviously received a cash offer in the meantime. Needless to say, we were pretty bummed. Also, in the meantime, we got engaged (I hope to tell our story on the blog someday)!!!
|Ignore the horrible picture quality. Husband isn't evil, promise.|
We were just happy and excited to be out of the house and ready to start our new adventure together. Thus, the beginning of the building process! I hope you will come along on our adventures, so keep checking back to see what happens next!
Anyone have any experience buying or building? I'd love to hear your opinions/thoughts/comments!
