Let's build a house
Why? - you might ask. It all happened by accident. We went to see friends in their new house and liked the area. We asked the foolish question:" Are there any lots for sale that we can build a custom home? "The answer was no, but there is some property up the road where property is available. We looked we liked, we bought.


When it's finished it should look similar to this.
This is the architect drawing inserted on the lot photo.
This look is from a few blocks away.


You can follow along and see how the house is progressing.
