What would you have done differently?

I don't expect we're getting much traffic here but want to throw the question out there anyway. What little feature would have made all the difference in your home?

Priscilla shared a great idea with us - to have outlets installed in the bathroom cabinets so that you can charge your toothbrush or electric razor without putting it out on the counter. I think we'll also install an outlet in our pantry.

My dad wishes the breaker box was inside his house instead of outside (sounds like we can do a combo).

A mirror defogger would be kinda neat for the bathrooms and seems relatively inexpensive.

What's coming

Catch Up

We broke ground on the construction of our new home last week!

Quick recap: The property, which we purchased in Oct 2005, had a house on it that we attempted to renovate. After uncovering numerous problems, we decided to demo the house and start over. I'll post some older pictures as soon as I figure out the best way to do so and order them sequentially if I can. The Demolition, Builder selection, and Architectural phases that followed also took more time than we expected but the transformation of the property as it is today is pretty amazing.

A Craigslist Scavenged House Just Before Demo

This is the house that was originally on the property on the day of demo. We met somebody on Craigslist who got a lot of great materials from the house before it was knocked down.
