Building a new house is so fun . . til you get started! Most everyone I know who has ever built a house swears they’ll never do it again and then they forget how much trouble it was and they do it again. I’ve said I wouldn’t do it again and did! Every time I walk into a house being built and think of everything being brand new, I want to build. Then I remember the hassle and deadlines and inspections and people who say they’ll be there on a certain day and then aren’t and I tell myself I’ll never do it again.
My niece and her husband (and four kids) are building a new house. I got the grand tour and for a fleeting moment, I thought . . I’d like to build a new house! Then I saw the dark circles under Kristy and Wayne’s eyes and then I hardly saw them at all while I was home because they were working on the house til very late at night. I hope we never build a house!
The welcoming committee! 🙂 I had already seen the kids once but I never get to see them enough.
Kristy’s new kitchen is a dream kitchen!
There’s an outdoor kitchen that will have a gas stove and a huge stainless steel sink. And, that’s Kristy. You’ll have to excuse the fact that she’s still in her pajamas and no . . they aren’t living in the house yet. She drove over to the new house to meet us and she didn’t bother to get dressed. Funny girl!
On the other side of the patio is a big fireplace and a TV will be built in above it. There’ll be lots of parties out here for watching LSU and the New Orleans Saints play football.
This one had to show me every detail, even out the door of her room, onto the deck that doesn’t yet have railings. That kinda gives me the same feeling as crossing a bridge!
It’s a very nice house but you know what’s the best thing about building a new house?
There’s always a dirt pile somewhere nearby!
