Wow! I can’t believe September is over! Time is flying and it feels like this project is too! The house and garage have taken shape, we have windows, and the stage is being set for concrete.
You absolutely want to subscribe to our YouTube channel. We are publishing weekly (usually Mondays) exclusively about the build. You’ll get to witness first hand everything that goes into building a house yourself. Taking this on is a crazy amount of work! We keep telling each other that we can’t wait to be able to sit and enjoy Saturday mornings again, or see each other for dinner most week nights.
I’ll admit, this month has been TOUGH. Even though this is our full time “job” right now, it’s taking every ounce of our energy and even more time than a job would. Winter is coming and we HAVE to have concrete in otherwise we can’t continue building the house. That’s meant having Paul gone 12-14 hours/day 6 days a week. We decided to homeschool our kids this year which is another layer of responsibility… it feels a little crazy around here! There’s hope though- we should be able to rest a teensy bit after a few more steps of the build are complete.
I hope you’re enjoying the progress of this project. Here are some highlights from the past month…
