What a Surprise!

I opened my email to grab and then post the scanned image of the building permit, and received a delightful surprise. Our house designer, John Spears with Sustainable Design Group, emailed me some artistic renderings of the house. Computer imaging is truly amazing. I hope you enjoy seeing these as much as I did.


  1. It looks beautiful!

    Congrats on all the progress you've made so far with the building permits, financing, certifications, etc.

    When do you think construction will begin?

  2. Thanks, Dave! I'm glad you like it. I know not everyone appreciates a contemporary design, but it's something Andreas and I both like a lot.

    I hesitated to answer your question before, since we weren't sure how long it would take until the financing came through. But the folks at the local bank really worked their butts off to pull the rabbit out of the hat so we could close today. Work will start on the lot in the next couple of days, with the actual construction (excavation, footers, foundation, etc.) starting in the middle of this month.

    I hope you and Jeff have a happy New Year!
