Journey into home ownership...gah!

I have decided to buy a house. I have found the whole process exhausting and stressful and very emotional. And above all exciting. It is the largest purchase of my life, even bigger than my college education which cost me a pretty $50,000+ penny. I am also purchasing this house all on my own. Me, moi, yo, yours truly. Can I get a paper bag? I feel a panic attack coming on.

But, now that I have gotten that out of the way...I am so excited! I am having a house built! It is a small house, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, but I am the only one going to be living there and I am getting more and more excited. I have picked out my colors and everything.

This is my dirt!



And this is my foundation.

Wow, how exciting! I bet that is a huge sense of accomplishment! You should go to that Stage of Life website and do a feature blog on home ownership and doing it all by yourself, the people over there would LOVE it. If you're interested, just check for the link on my blog to the site.

Email Eric, the CEO. His email is eric@stageoflife.com. Explain your situation and that you'd like to become a featured blogger....tell him I sent ya! He'll send you all the instructions at that point, he has to give you access to post, I think.
