Finding a Home.....

This is where I live (or part of it). 62 beautiful acres. If you look at the photo and imagine slightly to your left.....that is the spot that my fiance and I have always planned to build our "nest". We've looked for house plans for three years, and we either come up with nothing we like or it just got pushed aside until later. Well, it looks like the time has finally come. We have found a house plan that we both love and if everything goes as planned, we will be in our "nest egg" by the end of this summer.
This is a better pic of the area the house will be in. The horses will have a different pasture by then, of course, lol......but just in front of those pine trees, where our gentle giants are grazing, will be our house. And (insert drumroll here).........

Here it is!!! It's called The Azalea Crossing and we found it at Don Gardner. The porch is enough to make me drool. It's been a life long dream of mine to have two things in a house 1.) a wrap-around porch and 2.) an attic. This one has both. And what's even better is that the attic space is above the garage and my darling, sweet and wonderful man has promised it to me for my studio!!!


This is the first floor. Looking at it, I still can't believe it! I keep wanting to pinch myself!




This is the second floor and a pic of my "proposed" studio space!!! I am so excited I just wanted to share!

Oh my gosh! That home looks absolutely beautiful! How wonderful for you! A wrap-around porch is one of my requirements for a home if we ever decide to build one. Congratulations!!
