Defeated Again

Today, our house was supposed to start up again. They were supposed to redig the footers today and start on the cinder foundation tomorrow. No phone call, no notifications, no work done. Today was snowy and about 20 degrees. We were almost certain no work was going to start but…

Finding A Location

We hadn’t confirmed where we wanted to build yet. It was between Sheffield Village (my dream location) and North Ridgeville (meh, pretty okay). Jen had her realtor contact send us some lots in both locations and we found one in Sheffield Village that was just over our price…
