On building a new house

We just got our first quote.

Then as Gord and I passed around the brown paper bags to breath in..

We decided we didn't really need a roof. Perhaps a tarp.

Windows are for sissies.

The front porch I have always dreamed about.... might be porch less. Just a door.

I am leaning towards dirt floors....because all that hardwood flooring pricing is making me cringe.

Do we really need trusses? They are expensive! who knew? But they actually hold up the house, so I have no problem with that if we really need it.

The quote was...way over the top...but we have two more to go. It's going to be a fucking bumpy ride my friends.

I will take you along for the ride...because I'm sure I will be pissing my pampers all the way through it.

Stay tuned.

balonie.... checking for her blood pressure. ohhhhh..that doesn't look good.

Hope Gord gets some relief after the sleep test--make sure no heart issues are involved--that's all I know about it.

Scarey be building a new home, but it is your retirement present--the last home you will live in no doubt, so don't forego your porch!!! You will get a lot of pleasure out of it I am sure. Can't wait to read the blogs when the first nail is finally pounded in and construction begins.
