Its funny how when you are in the midst of something difficult it seems like it will never end at times, and then when its all done you think, "that wasn't so bad", and you even miss it. That's where I'm at right now. I am excited for the landscaping in the spring, and for helping the next group that will be starting soon.
I'm not particularly excited for the actual packing up and moving part of it in the snow, but its supposed to be 37 and clear on Saturday, so it shouldn't be too bad. Still, if anyone wants to help it would be very much appreciated! We are also sad to leave our awesome neighbors. Vaeh has made good friends with their foster son and they play so well together. We'll have to make frequent trips up to keep the friendships alive. I am excited to have Jason and Lisa as neighbors again though! For those of you who don't know we lived together for a little over two years, and even though its GREAT to have your own place its nice to have family close by.
I am so grateful to have had this opportunity! We have made great friends with our neighbors, have learned a TON about building, and in general it was just good to work with our hands to accomplish a goal. Even though there were many a hard time, it was generally a fun experience! I would do it again!
I was going to send Christmas cards with a picture of our family in front of our new house, but it will most likely come after Christmas. If anyone wants one email me your address! Merry Christmas to all as I probably wont post again until after the holidays!
Our lot before the building started. We are holding a golden shovel in case you can't see.
Here's Jason and Lisa's lot
Here's the mostly finished house. I don't have a recent one. One of theses days I will post a picture of all the houses finished.
