We met with an architect today. He looked over my floorplans and we talked about our needs and desires and ideas. We also drove out and looked at the property. He is going to write up a proposal and if we can agree on a price, we will move forward with the design phase. I gave him my entire notebook of ideas and pictures.

A bundle of nerves

We spoke with the architect on the phone and now we are going to meet with him on Sunday afternoon! I am so excited! I don't know what all we are going to talk about but I know I have to show him my floor plan! I am so nervous but also so excited! This could be the first step of my house becoming a reality! Wow!

Starting out on our new adventure

After many years of thinking, hoping and praying, we are finally taking the first steps to realizing a dream. We bought 50+ acres in April and have been working hard to clean it up and prepare to build a house there. There are so many things to consider, so many things to do. But here goes . . .

I have been working on houseplans for some time now and this week I will be talking to an architect for the first time.
