good morning!

This picture of dirt may not look like much, but we are very, very excited about it…because in six short months, this will be where our lovely new house will stand! It will have:

  • four bedrooms
  • an eat-in-kitchen
  • a dining room
  • an office
  • a family room
  • two and a half bathrooms
  • an upstairs laundry room! 

This is a sketch of what it will look like when it is finished:

Have a lovely week!
