Designing and building our new home was a labor of love (with more than a few dollops of intense frustration) for two years. Barbara and I bought the one-acre property in 2002, and for two years it remained just a wild, overgrown slope. The actual construction began in September of 2004, and we were able to actually move into the home in August of 2005. I’m thinking of writing a book on home design/building - I'd call it “Frank Lloyd Wrong"!
From this (May of ’04)…..
Excavating, grading, digging, framing….
Not everything went smoothly!
Various and sundry….
The pool was a special challenge!
Six months and some 29,000 gallons later…..
