House Update

Image via Pinterest.  Kinda, sorta what our house might look like someday. Happy Monday!  It’s been almost a month since I have shared a house update and a lot has happened!  Well, a lot has happened and nothing has happened.  Building a house is a long, unexpected road, y’all!  Let me explain… In my last house update (HERE), I shared our plans with you and that they were at the city getting the permit so we could start the work.  Well, that was a month ago…and still nothing has been done on the house.  We were thrown a pretty big curveball that set us back quite a bit, and honestly had us wondering if we were even going to move […]

House Update

Happy Monday friends!  People keep asking for a house update, and the reason there hasn’t been one is because nothing has really happened.  We were working with the architect, and once we had the plan pretty much done (meaning no walls were going to move, but small changes to doors and windows could still be made), the architect started working with the engineer (who ensures everything is structural sound with the house).  That took FOREVER, but the plans have finally been stamped by the engineer and they are now with the city getting permits (which I am sure is not a super fast process either).  The thing with building, you can’t do a dang thing until you have a permit, […]

We’re Building A House!

I am SO excited to announce that Lance and I are building another house!  We built a house a little over 3 years ago with Banister Homes.  Since then we have built two more houses with them as flips, and we love working with them.  I was anxious to do it again for us, and a great opportunity popped up so we jumped on it.  We actually first looked at the house the day we got home from Hawaii back in July, and we decided for sure to buy the house, but we weren’t sure if we were going to build for us or just flip it.  Lance honestly didn’t really want to move and is happy in our house, […]
