A thousand square feet used to feel like a lot of space. A ton of space. Then the Lord added 5 kids in just under 6 years (2 boys then 3 girls) and the walls appear to be closing in fast! However, the Lord has blessed us immensely with the opportunity to build a new home, a larger home, a dream-come-true country home! Join us as we embark on this crazy DIY adventure as we literally build our next house and home, giving all glory to God our Father!
Thursday, March 28, 2013, we officially moved into our new house! Well, we moved all the beds and larger furniture and slept there. Then we spent the Easter weekend at gatherings. After Easter, we went back to the "old" house and packed more things and brought them to the new house. We have now been there just about 1 1/2 weeks and we LOVE it! It is home. Each day we try to unpack boxes while continuing to finish the house. I just finished the kid's vanity in their bathroom the other day and now I need to work on the vanity in our bathroom. But the house is completely functional and we have already had people over on a couple of different occasions. This week we host some friends for supper and host a bridal shower for my niece. The house as it is is completely functional even if it is still slightly unfinished. But, we don't have internet at the new house. So, I have been slightly absent since I don't come back here ("old" house) very often. Hopefully that will be remedied soon. In the meantime, I will take plenty of pictures, work hard to finish up the unfinished project (which will take a long time, I am sure) and share them with you when we actually have internet. Just wanted to share the good news with you in the meantime.
