We visited our new house site yesterday and took some "before" photos. The foundation is in, and the building will be complete for our move-in date of December 21.
This area will be next to my side of the house, and the trees are a protected species (I believe they are oaks). For all of you non-West Coast readers, the grass in California dries up in the summer and looks like straw, unless it is watered daily. In the winter, we normally have a lot of rain which turns all the grass the most beautiful shade of green!
These are all the pictures I will post today. The property goes back to the trees, and the photo doesn't give you a good sense of how much distance between the house & trees. There will be two houses to the the other side of our place. I'm sure we will keep track of the progress being made on the building of the house, and I'll try to post photos as progress is made. It is really difficult to imagine the spaciousness of this model when you only see the foundation.
Jeannie & Donald will have two stories of living space, and it is going to be spectacular! I wouldn't know what to do with the amount of square feet they will have, but I'm sure a family of four will be able to enjoy it. I feel like I'm the luckiest woman in the world!
