You may remember that Mr. Dale and I moved out to the country in October 2018. We purchased 10 acres of raw land and have spent almost every weekend working to build our home. Here’s an update of our progress.
Being a city girl, I never imagined all of the decisions and work it would take to build a basic house. Even though friends had built homes, they were usually in neighborhoods with city roads, water and sewage systems. To say I was unprepared is an understatement.
Our first decision: Where should place our home? Our property is deep. Should it be toward the back of the property, hidden from the road? That would require building a long driveway (think LOTS of $$$) Or should we build closer to the road and save money? We decided to build in the middle.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post: What type of house should we build?
