Well we closed on our house/project today. Our excitement is beyond explainable however that is at times dampened when we look at the current state of the house and all that will need to be done. Big Picture, it’s not a sprint, focus on the finish line – I have to keep reminding myself of these thoughts. There is also comfort in knowing that we’ve got a great and very reputable General Contractor (GC), great plans, house with good bones, almost 1/2 an acre which will have a flat backyard for the boys and it’s in the neighborhood where we have been concentrating our search efforts for the last several years – Morningside, Atlanta, GA. Our GC says that it will take 5 months from submitting permits until completion which will put us in the house in May however I bet him a 12 pack that it will be June – something has to come up, nothing is ever that easy. May or June, whichever it is, we’ve got a lot to do and a ton of decisions to make. Big Picture – it will and should be, our ideal house and Julie’s “forever home”. Here we Go!
