It’s hard to believe almost a year has gone by since we had Atlas! Time literally flew by. It’s time to move on to our next baby, a new home. Since we have sold the house and are going through the process of planning a move, and packing, we figure it’s a good time to start working on what’s next. Being we don’t want to rush finding our next home – we are going to rent for a little bit while we research our new territory. We have a few options rolling around our brains, and building is one of them. My dad is saying not to because it causes too much stress, but before we totally disregard the idea – we decided to spend some time researching how much we can save by contracting and building our own home. Yep, contracting. We will defiantly share all the details as soon as we crate a plan, but in the meantime I thought it would be fun to share some plans we have been looking at.
We are so excited to share the details of the inside along with the blueprints. Right now we are figuring out all the rules, and Tennessee law when it comes to building, and of course cost. From what we have read, by contracting our own home, we can save around 40% – which is a lot of money. We love the idea of sourcing our materials, and getting our hands dirty. We’ll keep you posted. Have any of you done this? Would love to hear your story!
