Nearly Ready to Start

Donna and I reviewed the house plans on 12/30 during a trip to Hedgesville, WV to Snowy River Log Homes. Plans look great, incredible amount of detail to review. Hope is to have building permits in the coming week and for basement construction to be completed by the end of January.

While in Hedgesville, we also took a look at the kitchen cabinets that had been spec'd for the house- they are by Kraftmaid- we liked the look but will be thinking through the color/door combinations over the next couple of months. We also went to a customer of SNRL to see some custom cabinets that were made for a kitchen remodel. The work was great, very detailed, strong construction, and a lot of touches that were obviously done to fit the job. When the time comes for cabinets, we'll get a quote on the custom constructed cabinets- they have a lot going for them but will have to see how the pricing comes out.

We took a ride to the property on 1/1- just spent an hour or so walking around- road to top of the hill wasn't plowed but we made it up there anyway- lot of wildlife tracks and the trailer was in good shape. Started to snow while we were there and it was beautiful, great views like we hoped for.

Every time we're in Home Depot or somewhere like that, we take time to look at appliances, lighting, sinks, and other items for the house- an incredible amount of choices to be made as we move forward. For now though, we're just looking forward to seeing some physical work started like excavation for the house and garage/shop.

We're getting close.
