Although we just moved from Maine to North Carolina, we're moving AGAIN. Crazy, huh? What's even crazier is that we're only relocating to a (slightly) different part of our current town. This will make the process MUCH easier.
The Quince Cottage blog will keep a photo diary of our new home as it's built from the ground up.
And...here's the ground, pre-clearing. As you can see, it's a corner lot, complete with Stop sign. Our decision to have a side entry garage changed the address! At first we were disappointed because we preferred the original. But when Google informed us our street was named after a place in Yorkshire, England, we felt much better. Herriott country!
Although we asked the builder to leave as many trees as possible, well...as you can see, there are none left. This makes us sad, even though it's pretty typical of the way things are done here. Now we're researching which trees and bushes will flourish around our new home.
Feel free to tell us about your home-building experiences in the Comments section.
Quince Cottage believes a bland subdivision house can be transformed into a beautiful home that reflects the unique taste and personality of its owner. In our own place, rustic, opulent, and exotic rub shoulders. Think gilded mirror, an embroidered velvet robe from Uzbekistan, and a weathered plank wall. Stick around, and we'll not only show you what we mean, we'll also give you tips on creating your own special style.
