Saturday morning found us up at 5:00 am to head to the property and then a meeting with the potential builder for our new home.
In Houston I don’t usually get to see the sunrise, we have a lot of trees in our neighborhood and it makes it difficult to actually see the sun come up – I often think I should head to Kemah for sunrise, wouldn’t that be a beautiful way to start my morning. Well on Saturday we were fortunate enough to see a glorious sunrise as we our GPS led us to a much needed Starbucks on the 610 Loop.
Our trips to the property include at least 1 stop at Buccee’s on I-10 in Luling, they have plentiful gas pumps and restrooms. My husband teases that if we didn’t buy their beef jerky on most trips we could more easily afford our new home.
Pulling into the neighborhood in Luling, we were greeted by a couple of the neighbors who were up early….and then we were off to our little piece of heaven – which now has an address. (That means that power will follow in the near future)
Then Mr. Green was able to witness the progress on his “barn” aka Grandpa’s Workshop or the Batting Storage Facility! This is getting exciting!
By our next trip the concrete should be poured and the building delivered……..
When we met with the builder there were lots of decisions to make, just a few I can remember
How wide do you want your walkways?, 14 seer or 15 seer for the a/c? What insulation? What style exterior doors? What type of interior doors? These are just general questions, over the next several weeks we will be choosing all those little things that make a house a home!
Til the next post…….
One thought on “And we are off!”
i’m so excited for y’all, i’d love to be able to build a home and make all the choices. enjoy the journey
