New Builder On Board

I'm one happy mama today. After fretting the past few days about engineering plans for the new house, and not happy that there have been some delays, today I hired a new home builder and am most pleased with the choice. My previous builder built mostly "no frill" spec homes and was not accustomed to having a "live wire" (that's me) for a client. When I mentioned that I was "a fearin" the up coming hunting season ... and him not being around to finish my home, he agreed that he would be off hunting (with pack horses mind you) for months at a time. YIKES

But God is good and was gracious enough to supply me with a bonified home builder that is also an engineer. In fact, he built the home I'm renting ... which I must say is a very sturdy home with lots of detail. The walls are all straight, and he added nice touches with trim moldings. He's building a home for the couple two doors down and they are pleased as punch with him.

Please make note that I must find dh's little "must have in my new home list" and share it with the builder. Can you just imagine with him being gone for stretches at a time if I forgot his LIST! Boy, I'd be in a heap of trouble!

Wow, I'm excited for you, I've never built a new house but every time we move instead of finding dh's list, I, put up a honey do list on the fridge, Poor man, since he moved me off to nowhere he tries to get things done to keep me happy. My job is to keep one jump ahead of him lol.
