Although I’m sure most of you already know, I wanted to share the news that Derek and I are building a house! We’re super excited for this next step and to see our dream home come to life!
We listed our current home up for sale in October this past fall and we now are working towards a closing date on the sale of that home. This means we can start focusing on the new home! We have truly enjoyed our current home and adding our little touches to it, but we always knew we eventually wanted to design and build our dream home. We never quite knew it was in the realm of possibilities to happen this soon, but here we go!
The new home will be located in Mapleton, North Dakota. A smaller community just outside of West Fargo, ND) We have decided to go with a rambler style and only ONE level with absolutely no stairs. This took me some time convincing Derek we could get along without a basement, but a simple “this means you could extend your garage to allow for extra storage” to get him to agree. After all, the new garage is just shy of 1,000 sq.ft.!
We started planning the new house this past fall (2019) after MUCH research on local builders. We finally landed with Verity Homes. The moment we first contacted them to check them out to-date they have been absolutely INCREDIBLE! The whole team is super nice, and always helpful with any and all questions you have during the process.
I plan to blog the entire build journey now that we’re getting closer to start date of construction so make sure to check back often for new posts!
