Exciting news...

We are building a house! I have wanted to share our good news for a while, but needed to wait until it was all official. We had our plans done about two months ago, purchased our lot a month ago, and just last week our construction loan finally went through, so we have officially started building. Because of the economy it took a little longer to get approved for the loan and everything, but we are happy to report that the building has begun. We went and took some pictures of our lot and the subdivision we will be living in. We are the first house that is being built in Cottam Fields. My father in law, who is a general contractor, is building it. I know it is probably not that exciting for anyone but us, but we are thrilled and wanted to share. So here are some pictures of our lot.

There is nothing so exciting, well ok maybe your marriage and the birth of your daughter, but a new home, espcially your first! I'm so happy for you guys. I really like the subdivision too.
