bummed :(

I was really excited to go see the lot today because Jesse told me that they had been doing some more work leveling it off.  So we went over there and I brought my camera to take some photos.  I wanted to post the photos on here.............BUT when I got out of the car, my camera's batteries were dead.  I was mad.  I'll have to go back and take some photos in a couple of days.

Our Lot

We found out today that we will be closing on our house sometime next week.   We had an appraisal and the appraiser guy took some photos of the lot & our street.  How do they appraise a house that is just a pile of dirt?  I find that odd, but whatever.   Our lot, in case you couldn't figure it out from my yellow highlighting, is lot #5.

Picking out our brick.

Heres the brick we ended up with.  We got it cheap because it was leftover from another order.  I think I like it, but its hard to judge what brick will look like on a house when all you can look at is a 3'x3' square.  I guess time will tell! 


Building a House!

I know my blog hasn't been very interesting for the past few months, but... I think its about to get a bit more interesting.  Lord willing, Jesse and I are (if all goes according to plan) going to be building a house over the next few months!  I'm going to be blogging about the process as we go through it.  After all, thats what this blog is all about, right?  Yeah, its about my life, but I titled it "Where I Belong" because I wanted the blog to be about my process of getting closer to where I belong.  This is definitely a step in that process.  I doubt that this house will be our "forever" house, but...we'll be there for awhile. 
This is our house plan that we've picked out.  We are changing a few things about it. 
Today we are going to Peerless Block and Brick to pick out our brick for our house.  This will be the first thing that we pick out so I'm kinda excited about it.
