Quite a while ago, I had mentioned that my husband & I own a 4 acre property. We purchased it five years ago with the intention of building a house. Well, life intervened and we didn't build immediately. Translation: Hubby works for Chrysler Canada and although they did not go through bankruptcy like the American counterpart, we were still hesitant to commit to house building during strange economic times. We are now at a point financially that even if he was to lose his job (which is an extremely remote possibility now), we would still be financially sound as new home owners.
It's very exciting and very time-consuming. Being the anal retentive, control freak that I am, I have been designing kitchen and bathroom cabinet layouts, as well as sourcing appliances, fixtures and home goods. There are close to one million little things that need to be chosen and assessed for suitability. Should the master bath have an infinity tub or a whirlpool? Should we use vinyl siding or fibre cement board? Can we afford to panel the library in cherry now or will it wait until later? Etc, etc, etc...
Needless to say, I have been busy due to all the house design and planning. Not to mention that I have a sweet pup with which to spend time and a job that is more necessary than ever if I really do want all those professional caliber appliances in the new kitchen.
I still have many garments to share with you all, but with time at a premium, I am finding it difficult to squeeze out the moments needed to photograph and blog. So, please bear with me, I'll get it in gear soon.
