A New Home

DSC_0111

And this is it. The piece of land we picked to build our future home.  In my opinion is it perfectly beautiful and perfectly suited to meet all of our needs.  We have finished negotiations with the seller and now just need to finalize.  Next step:  Decide on which type of house to build.  I think I only had one more type of house I wanted to share my research on.  The house that is my favorite: The underground house.  This lot seems to be especially well suited to the underground house because of the hilly nature.  There are a couple smaller cliff sides that we could easily nestle a house into rather than having to dig a big hole to bury the house in.  There are quite a few trees on the lot that we could cut down to use in building the house.  I hope to use the “whole tree method” as much as we can.  However, my very favorite aspect of this lot is the stream that runs along the back border.  I have always wanted my own little creek so this is my dream come true!
