sweet spot

On Saturday, we made an offer on 4 acres of bottom land with river frontage. It was a low-ball offer which we expected the owner of the land would reject. He accepted. The deal closes in two weeks, and then it will be time to dig a well and get started on our house.

Wow! Congrats on the property -- that is so cool. Are you guys in the States now?

I thought I'd answered your question, but now I see that my answer didn't make it into my journal, so I'm guessing it didn't make it to your in-box either.

Yes. We now reside in the State of Arkansas. Why? See my recent journal entries.

Re: Stateside
thanks :) There's nothing wrong with Arkansas...i stopped trying to validate the South to people who just don't understand

how long will it take for the house to be completed?

Build time
I'm looking to have it done by December 23rd. We signed a six month lease on this rental house (AKA "the Brown Palace"), and neither Lara nor I care to linger here any longer than necessary.

Dry-stack concrete construction goes pretty quickly, so I expect the foundation and walls to be in place by the end of summer. Finishing the interior is the part that I expect to take the longest, but we can move in before that phase is completely finished.

Right Freakin' On!
Nice job, man. The house plans look cool too.

I'm going to remind you, once again, that you now live in freakin' Arkansas!

I'll be sure to take my camera with me the next time I go out to the land.

That's so awesome!
I'm really happy for you and your clan. That's so exciting that you have started moving towards that kind of sustainable living. The house looks beautiful. Good luck with getting all that together.

Good luck with getting all that together.
Thank you much.

I'll take all the luck I can get. Wish me the wisdom to recognize good luck when it comes along and to realize that what's best for me often diverges markedly from what I want to happen at any given time.
