This picture is from last night. The empty lot…nothing very exciting, as you can tell. It is a regular lot in a neighborhood that was started about 10 years ago. Our lot is one of the last to built on. The neighborhood was planned so that no houses that back up to each other. So everyone has ‘community’ land behind their house.
The WHOLE ‘project’ started well over a year ago. It feels good to finally begin the actual construction. We’ve taken it from developing the floor plan all the way through permits, bids, and now construction. Luke is the General contractor on the project….and I’m in charge of designing the kitchen! (I get to start that process tomorrow morning!)
The kids in their future back yard! It will be much better than the dirt lot it currently is. 🙂 Although, we will not have real grass, we have plans to make the backyard very green by using native plants (and some fake grass!) We tried real grass in our last 2 houses….now I know that you just don’t have a big grassy yard it Tucson. It does not work.
We had the house designed to take advantage of these spectacular views! I can’t wait to show you more as things progress. You’ll probably bore quite quickly of my updates….so I’ll try to keep it to major changes. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
