After so many years in Military Housing we built our own home. I don't think we would have chosen New Mexico but the military decided this is were we need to be. We thought about buying an older home and fixing it up but a new home seemed like a better option. I did not want to be in the middle of a project and have David go away for six months. I don't want to do all the work by myself.
Here is our beautiful house during construction. I think I bothered the workers almost every day. I wanted lots of pictures to document our house. I also thought that building a home was a lot faster than it turned out to be. It took them eight months to complete our little house. I am scared to know how long it will take to build out forever home!
Here is our house on the day we closed! Look at the pretty green grass. We had grass and a sprinkler system installed in the front yard before we moved in. The green stops at the fence. The backyard is just dirt. Nothing has been done. I now get to design the backyard and I can not wait.
