Mark and I built our house in 2002. It's a traditional three bedroom, two bath, two car garage home that is 1500 square ft. I like to think of it as cozy instead of small ;) Since we live in a small town, our house is not part of a subdivision or development. To have the home built we went to a custom home builder who had a good reputation. I know when I say custom home it sounds like we would have a 6500 square foot McMansion, but that's not the case. In a small town most people use independent builders who build a variety of homes and structures. When we started the building process, we didn't know a thing about construction. We learned a great deal through that experience. We were very fortunate to have a builder who was honest and good at what he did. We love our cozy house but after adding two little ones to our family we are feeling like we've outgrown it. Lately, we've been thinking about building our dream home or forever home more than ever. We own fifteen acres in the country and that's where we plan to build our forever home. I hope to share that process with you in the future.
I'm currently organizing photos to show you our home.
