Last weekend we battled the drizzle to walk with my cousin, Steve, over to our proposed little house in the sorta big woods site. ( Little House in the Sorta Big Woods is my pinterest board for ideas for the new place.) We nailed down our site and I think it is going to be very pretty...lots of trees and not just pine trees but nice oaks and hickories abound there. We are trying to take down as few as we can. The pond will be in front of the house and later on we will need to do some work on it as well. With property the work never ends. My husband who is a city boy is about to find this out!! It has always been his dream to have a little house in the country. I am glad I can do this for him...he has done so much for me and the children over the years. He is truly a faithful man in every way.
Steve told us that he would get started on our driveway this week and he did.
It looks as though it will be a while before we can actually start building. We have to get power and water lines in as well as a septic system. As several friends have assured me, it will take longer than you think and it will cost more than you think it should.:) But we are encouraged just to see the beginning of our dream come true.
