Half Way Home

I am halfway home after a successful trip to Northern Kentucky. We found the house we want to build; it is the one I showed everyone in a previous post. After adding ton of options, we put in an offer and got the price we wanted. From my research I think we got a great price and I can't wait to see the house built and finished with all the choices I got to make.

I will be going back to Kentucky in 3-4 weeks to review the plans for the house and finalize everything. After that I'll make another couple of trips and then probably move into an apartment once the house is framed and stay until the contruction is complete. Since there is another month after the actual construction is finished having various inspections done, I'll have a few weeks back home after that to complete packing and hang with my buddies.

I like the kitchen so much that I might just have to start cooking, LOL! And my craft room? It will be just awesome!!! Here is a picture of the kitche in the model. I picked maple cabinets and stainless steal appliances both of which are shown in the second picture taken from a different model.

I have a shot at 2 part time jobs when I get up there. One is teaching classes at the local scrapbook store and the other working in the model home in my community a couple of days a week. Time will tell if either of these come through, but they would be loads of fun to do and keep me out of trouble if I did get them.

It sounds like everything is coming together for you. The kitchen looks like a great place to cook and hang out.

It is great that you already have two possible jobs in place. Congratulations.

Things are moving along fast. Congratulations on the the new home. Building it your own way sounds so neat, but oh my...the decisions you have to make.
What scrapbook store did you find in the area?

Boy it sure sounds like you had a ton of decisions to make on that house, but its worth it to get what you want! The kitchen looks fabulous and homey to cook in.

Good luck with the building! I do hope that Nuku doesn't "punish" you for being away for too long. Big hugs!
