Today we got a chance to get some aerial photos of our new lot and the surrounding area. My friend Scott and I took these pictures with my kite aerial photography remote control rig and Scott’s kite. I plan on taking photos throughout the building process…

Awakened by…. chainsaws???? Could they be at our lot? Noooooo…. oh yes!

Amazing! We stopped by the lot on the way to work only to find wide open space where the septic will go and where the house will stand! Man, this crew does not waste any time. Apparently they were […]

The papers are signed!

Today, Wednesday, March 23, 2005 we have finally signed the contract with the development company to build our new home! The experience left us with many simultaneous emotions - excited, nervous, scared, anxious - and definitely tired!

Long story short, needless to say, all plans have changed!

We met with Shawn’s team this morning and hashed over our options - none of which really seemed very pleasant. We’re still going forward with the house, but the septic is now located at the front of the lot (yes, uphill) which means we’ll have […]

Friday’s fiasco leaves us feeling frustrated and fearful… what a f&!?up :(

We’re in the midst of reviewing the contract with the builder, signing the land registration papers and choosing siding colors when Shawn drops by and lets us know that “the sky is falling”.

Since we walked the lot on Tuesday, the septic team […]

It’s Tuesday, March 15, 2005. This morning we were up and out at an early 8am :) We met with our project co-ordinator, Shawn at the lot to discuss the orientation of the lot, the location of the septic field and the proposed location of the house. We were excited to find […]

It’s time to get started, the best way to start things off is with a time line based on what we have already accomplished to this point.

April 2004 - Start talking with developer about lot options

September 2004 - Still talking with developer about lot options and now House plans

October 2004 - Lot picked, house plan […]
