TC and I are now officially land owners. We closed on our lot this afternoon. It's so official it's bona fide. We bought a lot and are working on plans to build a home there. For privacy reasons I won't say exactly where, but I will tell you that the lot has great views of the sunset, of downtown SLC, and mountains. We've got it all. And we are so excited.
We are working with an architect to come up with the plans, and he is a friggin' genius. No lies. The first floorplans he showed us were exactly, exactly what we had always dreamed of and more. The process is long, and we probably won't be in our new house until the end of the year, but all this waiting is so worth it. We have been in our current apartment for 7.5 years, waiting, saving, waiting, mostly patiently. And now our dream is so close I can taste it.
So the rest of the year will be occupied with floor plans and construction and giddiness and picking colors and appliances and the like. Also, there will be worrying about money, second-guessing ourselves, and stress (because nothing ever goes the way you think it will). But mostly it will be fun and interesting.
So here we go on this grand adventure...
