Construction - week 1

It's official! The hole has been dug and filled with stones and sand, the fences have been put in position, IT HAS BEGUN!!
Within the next 6-8 months, the drawings will turn into a (hopefully) lovely home, with a spacious kitchen to bake lots of goods in :o). We're very busy running around from one vendor to the next, then back to the architect and back to the drawings, because it's like dozens of decisions have to be made every day. But we're beyond excited and very much looking forward to the whole proces. Just to start of, here are pictures of me and M. standing on our lot. The snow has left in the meantime, making the weather more building-friendly ;o).

Heleen, how exciting! I love your baking, but this house building is so neat - and you'll have *thee* kitchen you want. :-)

Heleen, this is great news!! I'm so excited for you guys. And just think, you'll be able to pick out exactly the oven that you want for your new kitchen!

Heleen zei

Thank you all :o). We're really, really excited about the whole thing. Excited and a bit scary, LOL! Yesterday we went over there and they had started with the concrete, installed a large crane, so it definately looks like a construction site now!
I will have to make a gingerbread model of the house. It won't matter if it's partly burnt or dried out, so even the crappy oven won't stop me ;o)

How exciting! I'd love to build a new house for the sole purpose of making a dream kitchen!! Can't wait to see the gingerbread model :)
