Well, its been about 13 months since we purchased our lot in Virginia. This past Friday, our Construction Manager finally pinned down an approximate move-in date of November 13/14. It is truly countdown time!
I have been sharing videos on Face Book, but wanted to document the progress in a bit more detail. I don't actually get many views on my blog, so this is post is mostly for me, as I know I will enjoy revisiting this blog post years from now.
We have a fabulous Architect. We told him we wanted a quasi-Craftsman style home - it's basically one and half levels with a full basement. It incorporates wonderful textures on the facade - stone, shakes, and siding that is placed vertically rather than horizontally--- I love the siding.
NOTE: (Click on the drawing/image to see it full screen). And, for some reason, Blogger has changed my font color halfway through this post....I have NO IDEA why.... Sigh.
|Texture is what excites me - Shakes, Siding, and Stone

|There is a wrap around porch, which leads from the front door to half way around the right side of the house
|The back features a three season porch...one of my favorite features
