This blog is intended to offer glimpses of the design and construction process for this new house venture. It's fun to show exciting images and progress, but it's important for me to also present the "dark side" when it becomes the dominant item of the day. Right now, the frustration du jour is on helplessly waiting for things to happen that were promised but haven't happened yet. I won't list them all, but big and small they are many. With the upcoming closing date with our mortgage banker and our need to move out of this rental apartment, I'm anxious about having things get done so these major milestones can happen with some assurance.
