Wow, it feels like it has been ages since I’ve posted here. Actually, it has been. Almost a year.
Well, I haven’t exactly been resting on my laurels. When I last posted, we were about 2 weeks from moving in to our house, Holly was going through surgery and I was at my wits end with work, manging the project and having a wife in really bad shape. Keeping this site up wasn’t exactly a top priority.
Since then, Holly has gotten better (almost back to 100%) & we’ve been enjoying our house. It has really been awesome and we regularly look around and can’t believe that it is ours.
I’ve been wanting to do a post summarizing everything that we learned through the project. It turns out, when I started writing it, that we learned a lot. 41 pages to be exact. So rather than putting it into a single post or a bunch of posts, I’ve done something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time, write an ebook.
Building Castles is the entire story of remodel project. How we picked a contractor, an architect, how we financed it, how we picked things out, how we kept everything on track so that we were able to move in early and almost on budget.
Check out the site. If you are working on designing your house, I think that you will get a lot out of it.
