Our house is under contract. Yeah! But....there are some contingencies. If all goes well, we will be closing on January 9th. Which is perfect, because we won't have to try to move during the holidays.
In the meanwhile, I have told you we are going to be building a new home on some property we have. We will rent a furnished place while the house is being built. You can see the property here.
We are pretty sure we are going to build a normal stick built type home, but this weekend we went to a log home manufacturer to check them out.
I think that log homes look charming from the outside. They are very fitting for the mountain community we will be building in. In fact there are several log homes already built in the community. There are also some arts and craft style homes, with stone and shingles.
Above is a shot of the inside of the model log home. It is really pretty, but Mr. Comforts and I decided, we just did not like so much wood.
So, log homes are off the list. We are going to either build and arts and craft style or a standard type home, with log siding. And of course as always, when we start this whole thing I will bring you right along with me.
Keep your fingers crossed that all goes smoothly for the next couple of months.
