Here it is...isn't it pretty! :(
Then Hubby & I spent hours and hours designing just how we wanted the interior and had an architect draw up the blueprints for us. We were planning on self contracting the home ourselves. The plan was to build the new home with mostly cash and if needed only have a very small mortgage. This was only possible with the sale of our current lake home.
Then, the market died and we could no longer get what we needed to to build the new home. Now it brings me to where we are now. We decided that due to the economy our dream has died as they say it will be several years for the real estate market to make a comeback. We put our beautiful 1 1/2 acre lot up for sale and it just sold. We are signing the papers tomorrow. I'm sad thinking about all the times hubby & I spent up on our land dreaming of our new home, designing it, staking out where the best views were for window placement, seeing our girls running on the property so excited for the new home, etc... oh this darn economy ruined my plans! Is it crazy that I am almost in tears writing this?? I am sad, but have to trust that God has something better in store and that he knows best!
Has the economy changed your plans??
