Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve been here to chat at you, but we’ve been busy beyond busy.

We’ve been doing crazy things such as checking the ground for valuables.

We’ve been digging a hole, or two, for our new basement.


Oh, I guess I forgot to tell you, we signed our life away tons of important papers which makes us the proud new owners of this wonderful little piece of land:

We don’t know when all the papers will be in order or when we’ll have our building permit, but as soon as we do, we’re building our new house right here on this spot.

While we were having one of our longer talks with the nice people from our building company, Alida and Alexander decided how they would like the outise and inside of the house to look. Alida took care of the front and Alexander drew up floor plans.


Later that afternoon we took a trip to a house similar to the one we might be building. While Martin chatted with the owner about the technical stuff, I decided how to decorate the inside and where our furniture would go. Isn’t that about right?
