House is Started

So the house has been started..........................Well I said that a bit calmly didn't I................THE HOUSE HAS BEEN STARTED... that's better.

This all happened yesterday, and this day ended up being awesome. First up, I went into town to another gym and did an RPM spin bike class and I loved it. I think I am going to join this gym as it will be easier to get to than my old gym and I will go more. That's the plan anyway. I am feeling good, very fit, my clothes are getting looser and I have been walking everyday, except today. So that's nearly everyday.

So back yesterday. I drove home, up our dirt driveway which is quite steep and there they were. Our three builders and all of their gear, already working on the house. I was so super excited, I can't even explain it. Well it kinda feels like we are beginning the exciting journey from shed dwellers to dream house owners, and I may have an enclosed roof over my head sometime soon.

It also feels very strange to have people out here all day, right next to the shed as we are out of town and don't get alot of visitors. So we are waking around 6am each morning now to get showered and dressed before the builders arrive at 7am. Which is great for school days, we are so organised!!!!!

I plan to take heaps of photos to document the process so I proudly present the first photo in the series....

That's the double garage on the left, and you can see the makeshift green stairs at the front which will be the entrance. Here's some more, stay with me if you can, as I know they are repetitive but this is why I started this blog to document the journey of building our house. So it's gotta be done.......










Stay with me people, c'mon I have waited a long time to post pics!!!!!!

Extremely exciting. I give you props I don't know if I would ever be able to build a house from scratch. Just too many decisions to make. Can't wait to see the pictures as more work is done.
