Our Home

This is a picture of our home. The home it took us a year and a half to build. The home that we've now lived in for exactly 1 year, 2 months, and 10 days. It was a long, hard road, we did all the contracting ourselves, rather than paying a contractor to do the work for us. This saved us a lot of money, but was also a lot of hard work. So, this is the ultimate picture of success to me.
The home where I plan to live the rest of my life, where my children will grow up , and where they'll bring my grandchildren to visit me.
I love this place...

Hey- that's some pretty green grass for February. LOL! It's a beautiful house, way to go. I'm not sure I would ever dare to take on such an adventure.

I'm not only envious of your beautiful house, but envious that you are in the place you are going to live for the rest of your life. I can't wait for that day!

Ok, I cheated. I admit, I did take this picture when my grass was still green... when I went outside today with my camera and looked at that dead, brown yard, I just could not do it. I'm sorry, guys, no more cheating! LOL ;)

Wow, what a success! I love your house! I remember my parents building their home from the ground up. It is a lot of hard work!

I SOOOOOO want a house like that. It totally looks like you can live and love there. I really love the brick, too. And that yard, I'm salivating!
