We've settled into our new place. After much prayer and consideration, we've decided to build a house! Nate will be the general contractor and do much of the work himself. This was not really on our radar, as we planned on buying home, but this option came up and as we considered it, it seemed like the best option. So...we are deep into plans and bids and things that I never knew about before. Nate is learning so much, which makes him come alive!
One of the reasons this seemed like a good option was the availability of our good friends' basement apartment, where we are now! Their previous renters just moved out and it was the perfect time for us to move in. They work in the construction business and have generously offered us help with this process. Our kids love each other. They live a block from our building site. Lots of great things about it.
So...without further ado...our new pad!!
The open door in the back is a third bedroom for guests and craft supplies. :)
The kitchen, obviously.
You can see the hallway that leads to the bathroom and two bedrooms.
Thanks Classens for opening your home to us! We are excited to make the most of this time together!
