So we thought maybe we should look at land and possibly build instead. I really liked this idea because then we can make it just how we want. So a different type of search began and let me tell you, looking at houses is more fun than looking at land. When looking at houses there is something physical in front of me and a house to walk through, when looking at land there is nothing except dirt. I am not a visionary or an imaginative person, so it was hard for me to look at a piece of empty land and visualize a house in front of me. At least when we were looking at houses there was something physical there and I could say I like this part and I don't like that part. But that is also going to be the benefit of building because when I walk into my new house I won't be able to walk around and say I don't like that. I WILL like it ALL (at least I hope).We didn't look long before we found the piece of land we fell in love with. It was the right size/acreage, same school district, perfect location (just a little bit out of town but not too far) and the best part is that it has lake-front access. Now before you get too excited, this lake isn't the type of lake that you would go skiing on but it is big enough to take a small boat out on and go fishing. Travis is already getting excited about taking Tyler fishing and how to modify his Kid Kart so his fishing pole will be attached to his chair. I guess, boys need to be boys :-)
So now the planning begins. We have already met with an architect and he has drawn up some plans to meet our needs. We are needing to make a few changes to the plans but we are well on our way. One of the things that I am most excited about is making a house accessible for Tyler. He will have his very own bathroom with roll-in shower, wider doorways throughout the house and an open concept. I am sooo excited!!!
Now if we can just move in tomorrow, my dreams would come true. But I guess that's not going to happen.
