As Tom Petty sang . . .

"The waiting is the hardest part."

We are eagerly anticipating the arrival of our final house plans. I can't wait to see them!

In the meantime, we are gathering information about contractors, bricklayers, plumbers, electricians, etc.

As soo as the plans arrive, we start making phone calls and scheduling meetings with ones that seem like good prospects.

Then the FUN part begins - figuring out home decor . . . Weeding through Home books to see about design ideas for kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and the like.

That is the part I'm really looking forward to! Figuring out room colors, what faux finishes to use on the walls, flooring . . . can't wait! Got to get my artistic juices flowing! :-)

Stay tuned . . .
