We have plans!

Last night I purchased the plans for our homestead from http://www.countryplans.com/ (Photo is from CP website, a completed house of the plans we purchased)

I'm so giddy!

We went with the 20x34' Universal which we're bumping out to 38' long and putting a living attic in. I'm using Visio to work up a floor plan. We also just ordered Chief Architect Home Designer Suite v.9 so we can make walk through models of the house. The better prepared we are for what we're doing the easier it'll be.

We decided to go with Country Plans because they're inexepensive and people have actually built them. Both by hand and contracted out. There is a wealth of information, photos and help on the forums. We feel confident in the materials and our ability to create our home from the plans. I also tacked on the Sunroom, Greenhouse and Skylight package for another $16.

Hey, ho! Here we go!

I'm glad you're giddy, so am I! I feel like stuff is starting to happen, even if the end result is a ways off. I can picture us doing this in my mind (I'm a strong believer in positive visualization, if that's the right phrase). Soooo excited!

I'm excited for you guys!

I wanted to let you know that I've "nominated" you for the Kreativ Blogger award. You can read about it on my blog. No pressure if you don't feel like posting it up on your blog or passing it on. It's just for fun!
