We’re building a home
See that photo above! That is 1 full acre of land! YES, it is! And hopefully, it will be ours very soon!
It has been 6 years since we built and purchased our current home but we’re building a home again. YES, We are on a journey now to build and purchase a new home! It has been quite an amazing 6 years in our current home but we have just outgrown it! We are limited in the land space and our home space too! I am sure you can relate to that! We are just out of room!
Journey to our 1-acre dream home
So, after talking with my husband and going over somethings, we came to the conclusion that we want out of the town and into the country! We also want to get our first acre of land! We currently have .55 acres which is still a good bit but there are wetlands we will not be able to expand to.
So, now the journey begins! We are building our 4th home!
Looking back at our current home!
The photo you see above is the .55 acres where our current house sits! Lots of mature pretty trees and I love where our home is currently but we can’t go any further back! Which was fine 6 years ago! But we need more land now!
This is where the foundation went, looks like there isn’t much of a back yard but there really is a nice size backyard. Promise!
Our re-start starter home!
I suppose one day I will write up something about the home we are currently in, so many memories and projects that took place in the house! But for now, let me show you the outside of our current home on the little over a half-acre lot we have now. It was built by Scott Martin of C.S. Martin locally in Rincon, GA
It is a 4 bedroom 2 bath home! Honestly, It might not be over the top from the road but it is simple, yet grand inside! It has been our perfect home for 6 years! But now it is time to let it be someone else’s, perfect home and a good starter home for a young family!
The new home journey hopefully begins soon!
We’re building a home, I cannot believe we are doing it again! I know you can tell I am so READY! Here is the elevation that was sent to us! No ours will not have a basement area, it will just be 2 floors and no there is no elevator! (haha) But it will have 2 fireplaces!
This home plan is by Frank Betz you can see that plan here it is called The Hickory Flat! The home will be built by a local builder out of Statesboro, GA – JCH Homebuilders! James Hendry is the owner, which I love that JCH Homebuilders is a small business and local too! I have a heart for small businesses, obviously!
Here is the previously built home plan that we looked at that caught our eye, obviously I will be doing all I can to make changes to make the home more my style and that I will love for years to come!
Take a look at the grand living space!
This photo is from a previous build by JCH Home builders but DANG! It caught my attention! The craftsmanship is outstanding! Sign me up! lol
I will share more about this home journey along the way, I just wanted to show you how amazing this home is and how excited I am to meet with the builder on Tuesday 2/2/21 those have to be lucky numbers right? 222? I am just kidding but seriously, we will know more about the next steps on Tuesday!
And then the process to reno our current home begins! Things like paint, new carpet and bathroom redo’s are on the to do list!
Here is another photo from JCH Homebuilders of the kitchen! THAT ISLAND!! OH MY!
Here is one of the exterior of JCH Homebuilders versions of the Hicory Flat. I am not a fan of the brick or the color choices but I do adore the interior!
Here is one of the photos of the outside of the Hickory Flat by Frank Betz elevation of the home, isn’t it cool to see the different visions people have had for this floor plan? I love creativity!
The Hickory Flat home plan by Frank Betz
I really love this home from the outside and I adore the inside too! My hope is to be able to really make this home our very own and put our own creative touches on it!
Here is the floor plan inside.
So funny how many different variations there are of the home’s exterior! Farmhouse, cottage, or a cute bungalow, there are so many ways to create the different looks!
Take a look at this one with a garage in the front! SUPER CUTE TOO!
Come on the journey with us!
Nothing is set in stone yet, but we are hopeful! If you have ever gone through this process then you know that the excitement is super high and sometimes things take quick turns! We are on the road to a new home regardless but I had to share the process! It can be timely and at times super exciting and stressful too! Especially when it comes to the financing a home part! Don’t get me started on that lol!
Shiplap walls! Yes, please!
How about a few more photos for you to look at! I hope you are here for the journey! You know, I will do my very best to fill this home with all my budget-friendly DIY decor for years to come I just know it! I might even add a brand new element to the blog that is all things home living! OK, that will be so much fun! DIY and Home living! PERFECT DUO!
We’re building a home – That bathroom! oh my!
