Dream House

I am in the fortunate position of being able to afford to build myself a new house (well...perhaps myself and the bank). Having been to several 3rd world countries and knowing that there are lots of people in the world who don't even have housing, I felt a few pangs of guilt about this. I had a decision to make: rehab the old or build new. The cost to rehab my old house was going to be substantial. It was October of 2009. My husband had passed away in August from liver cancer. I was in the depths of grief and sorrow. I needed a project. I decided that if I had to plunk down a lot of money anyway, it was better to build new. I also decided that if I was going to build new, I was going to build green. My new house will be both beautiful and "green". I will share the journey and the adventure with you.

The Front Door is In!

     At long last, after being ordered a couple of months ago and being on back order for at least 4 weeks, my front door came in!! The side lights, door, and transom window come all as one piece. The door is made by Thermatrue and is a fiberglass door that will be stained a walnut color. Luke, the mason, also showed up after a hiatus from working on my house. He put the stone on the peak of my house (which was a bear of a job, according to him, and precarious).  Life is looking good. I am hopeful that the house WILL be completed after all! (Still not sure when exactly, but soon, I hope!).
