As of Friday, May 16th, Karann and I are proud (and nervous) land owners. Proud at the fact that we have taken our time, researched for years, and finally acquired the "perfect piece". Nervous because we have quite literally gone broke in wrestling it to the ground. Of course the "fun" has just begun, which brings us to this blog. We felt it only right to share with our friends and family (and all the nosy folks trolling the web for a good story) the many ups and downs of building our "dream" home. We know it's going to be rough, we're expecting the worst and hoping for the, well, we're hoping it doesn't drive us to kill. Contractors be warned!
