A New House for the Powells!

After many, many (MANY!) months of searching for a new home for our family, we finally found the right one and closed on it this week!  Some might say we're crazy for choosing multiple life changes simultaneously (having another baby, buying a new house and doing some extensive renovations and additions on said new house!) but it works for us and we couldn't be happier. 

We won't move into the new house until sometime after the first of the year because of the work we're doing on it first (would I rather live through days of no heat, no plumbing and no electric with a newborn?!), but I'm excited to share the photos before, during and after and the craziness of the project.  We've been working with an architect for the past month or so to complete the design and a contractor who will be managing the project, the biggest we've taken on so far.  Work begins tomorrow, so we're wasting no time. 

Although we're not quite ready to share before pics, I have to share this one because one of my favorite things about this house is the amazing lot - look at all the green space!
 Finally closing on the house has been a great milestone after a challenging month.  Can't wait to share more as we go along, starting tomorrow!
