    Default Building from the ground up? Come on in!

    Welcome! If you are building a house please feel free to post updates on your property and include pictures.

    A little about me. Hubby and I found a house in it's early building stages back in October of 2004. We bought it and moved in and couldn't have been happier... then, hubby got a new job that required us to move. We were back on the hunt, put the house on the market and it sold 2 days later. We are now building our new house.

    The stats:
    Sq. Ft:2711 sq. ft./2 stories
    Estimated date of Closing:: Oct 10, 2005
    1/3 of an acre on a corner lot

    Current photos:

    We have just had our preconstruction walkthrough and discussed the fine details of the plans to make sure everyone is on the same page. We have our foundation poured and framing was supposed to start sometime this week. We are planning on riding down there either today or tomorrow to see what has happened, if anything. We have a tentative closing date of October 10 if the rain holds off. Keep your fingers crossed because I am going crazy in this 1 bedroom apartment for the temporary time!!

    I wish I could join this thread, but alas we are still living in the barn...
    I just wanted to say that I love the quote you have from "Will and Grace"! Love the show and that's one of my favorite quotes! Oh, and you tentative date is my 1 yr anniversary, so it isn't that bad! Good luck!

    Default New Visitor

    Hey Summer, I'm a new visitor over here. I have posted in your journal on the WC a few times, I'm a fellow NCer! I saw that you were coming over here and figured I'd join and check things out. I hate the new WC format.....I'm still a someday (been with my boyfriend for over 5 1/2 years) just a little sad there is no Someday Journal over here but I guess I can make one somewhere else. Anyway I just wanted to say hello and it looks like everything with the house is coming along!

    Summer ~ I love the house you're building. I used to post in you WC journal once in a blue moon, but read along a lot! (Maybe I should be a pro reader too)!

    Courtney: Do you live in the OBX? I can't remember if you have ever said or not. Also, there are going to be journals here but they won't (if it goes as everyone has said) be specified like Wedding, NW or Somedays. It will just be a journal.

    Kelly: Why thank you, ma'am. Damn lurkers!!! You will HAVE to post now in my new journal when I get one. You ARE on the same level as me now with our Way too Cool!

    I think Hubby and I are going to take a trip to see the house today. I am praying I see some type of wood/framing started. Please keep your fingers crossed for me!!
