Set Backs

They are frustrating.
And no one wants to have them during a build.
Especially not the ones who are doing the building.
It rained down south and snowed at home yesterday.
Weather is the WORST thing to cause a set back.
Well... that, and not having the kind of flooring you want.

We met with the kitchen designer yesterday.
She will be forwarding her design to us later in the week.
I have a feeling there will be changes made.
Especially since we are still debating on flooring.

Weigh in on this, won't you?
Here are a couple flooring colors we are looking at choosing.


We would like wood throughout the first floor.
The second floor is only the FROG and will be carpeted.
Maybe you would not choose wood.

What does your dream flooring look like?
{My}Curious mind wants to know.

be blessed!

Clearing The Land

Let me start by saying I feel good about sharing things about the house with you, now.
We met with the builder on Friday when we went and saw this...

We left for a while, and came back to our meeting to find it staked out.
They will probably begin pouring cement this week if the permits come back by Wednesday and the weather holds out.
Next to our lot is one that hasn't been cleared away yet. That will be done this week, along with the digging out of the drainage area. The small trees that you can see in the back of our lot, will also be cleared away in order to ensure no issues with the septic tank.

We found out there are a lot of snakes in North Carolina; including copperheads, timber rattlesnakes, cotton mouths, and coral snakes. (It should make for an interesting first summer there!)

Thank you for coming along on this journey we are taking! I appreciate everyone's feedback, and we couldn't be more thrilled.

be blessed!
