We're doing it: building a new home ... and blogging!
This (the home, not the blog) has actually been a few months in the making. My husband and I married a year ago, and he moved in with me and the kids. We love my old house, but we decided to put it on the market in February and look for a place that is ours together.
Must admit, I had previously been pretty snotty about "new development," but I randomly popped in to the model in what will soon be our new community and absolutely fell in love. Two steps out of the extended laundry and in to the gourmet kitchen, and I was totally sold on the Waverly. I dragged my husband up a few days later, and he fell just as hard (thank goodness)!
And then we waited.
We had to sell our current home before we could move forward. It only took seven weeks to get it under contract, but they may have been the longest seven weeks ever. (Cleaning, showing, cleaning, showing, cleaning, showing ...)
So finally we're under contract, the sold sticker is on our lot and we're ready to move forward!
We're looking forward to having an outlet to share our experiences, and get plenty of feedback and advice from the RH blogger community.
