Goodbye Apartment, Hello New House!

Well, first off, let me apologize for being the worst blogger ever.  But I have an excuse!  We’re building a house!

Okay, so let me back up a little.  We’ve been house hunting for a while now and just could not find the right house for us in the current market.  Well, I was getting frustrated, so we started looking into new builds, not even imagining that we would be able to afford it.  Well, I was wrong!  One of the best builders in Tallahassee was able to build a gorgeous house for us in a really cute new neighborhood.  The only downside was that it would add about a 20 minute commute to work for me.

Well, after a ton of debating, I decided that the drive was not going to deter us from a house we really liked, so we went under contract!

Let me introduce you to our new home!  Well, what will be our new home in 4 months.

All our financing is complete, so now we’re just waiting for the permits to be finished so that they can start building.

I’m having a hard time containing my excitement and just want to tell everyone that I bump into on the street that we’re building a new house.  But I won’t.  Because that’s weird.

I’ll be sharing the entire process with you on the blog, from the good to the bad.  I couldn’t leave my readers out of one of the most exciting processes of my life!  

I will leave you now with the floor plan and some pictures of the model.  Isn’t she beautiful?


  1. Aaaah! That's so exciting! Congratulations!

    1. Thanks Paige! We're pretty excited! Can't wait until it's finished!
