A New House!



So we've finally decided to break down and build a house out here in SC. The deal was too good to pass up as we are able to build a beautiful new home for a lot less that what we could buy an existing older one for. The builders just got our permit and are ready to get to work. We are very excited and only wish it could all happen a little quicker. This home will be slightly larger (2,476 sq. feet) than the one we are in and is an "open" type floor plan so it seems even bigger. We're doing all the fancy things thanks to a large credit at the design center, tile/hard wood floors, solid surface counter tops, crown molding, a gourmet kitchen, etc. It should be finished a month or two before the baby is born. We are so excited! :0)

We are semi-close to you guys now, I told Shelbs that she would have to come visit you and me this summer, fun new house you guys have. And how in the world do you have such cute templates?? Tell me the secret for a cute blog. You guys are always so creative. Hope all is well, and hope to hear from you soon.

Congratulations Orchard family! That looks like a really nice family, and I'm sure you're excited to have it settled and have your own home again.

Good for you guys! 2 moves in one year... I don't envy that! Good luck with all of it!

Well aren't you just the lucky one? Prices here are absolutely horrible so we dont' see ourselves getting anything bigger for a few years. Sad:( Congrats to you though! Very exciting.

Wow! Looks like a nice house. Maybe you won't want to ever come back to Utah with a home that nice there!

We do have an extra bedroom, but will only be here until the end of Aug. So just let us know if you want to stay, no problem. Tell shelbs to come visit if she can. Happy b-day Easton!
