On The Dry
With the finish line in sight, water turns out to be a larger issue than thought. We're approaching the end of our strength, our patience, and our nerves.
Fast forward to 2014, we have FINALLY power, and the choice of conventional or green power.

There's (Half) A House!
The building finally begins and progresses almost at lightening speed.
And So It Begins...
The building begins at last!
It's Going To Happen!!
We received the building permit, the property is being prepared and we signed off the last details on the house. There's progress!
The Struggle Continues...
We learn that the building application was seriously messed up and once again have to follow up several times for the responsible party to start correcting the issues (part of the "Blog Every Day In May"-challenge)

The Planning Phase
Taking the first steps towards our new home.
To Buy Or To Build
How me made our decision that building was for us.
