Contrary to popular opinion I have not dropped off the face of the earth or gone home to heaven. I’m still here but I’ve been living life at a somewhat hectic pace for what seems like forever. Several months ago we embarked on a project to build a home on our property at the beach. We had no idea how long it would take us or how much energy it would take to begin the actual building process; however, I’m glad to say that we now have re-designed house plans, installed septic system, temporary power mount, cleared and leveled property, foundation dug out, engineering design for an abreviated drainage plan (don’t ask) and as of last Friday…..finalized building plans! And best of all we sign the final paperwork for our building loan this week. Will somebody please say “Hallelujah”.
When you look at the following pictures you’ll probably say, “uhhhh, all I see is a lot of dirt piles”. Well, my friends, all I can say is…one man’s dirt piles are another man’s future beach house.
Stay tuned for the next blog on how to decorate a beach house. And watch for a series of blogs beginning next week on how Joanie Baloney gets ready for a visit to Fancy Nancy’s house.
