One Crazy Week

What a crazy week it's been! Our house officially went on the market yesterday morning and within a couple of hours we had our first showing. And two more today. And another one scheduled for Saturday. Holy moly! When they said the market was hot right now around here, they weren't kidding.

They also broke ground at our new home this week so Jared and I have already driven by twice to watch the progress. Right now it's still a lot of dirt being dug up and moved around but I know things are happening fast. We can't wait to stop by and see the framing actually going up! Hopefully starting next week I can blog about the process as we go through it. We are building what I guess you'd call a "semi-custom" home. Meaning, there is a developer/home builder that we are going through and while we get to customize the things we want within the house, it's not like we are starting totally from scratch and designing our own blueprints or anything. In all my blog stalking I haven't found as much about that process as those who fully customize- so I plan on sharing our experience :)

It's going to be in the 60s for the next week or so starting today and I swear I'm about to put on shorts and flip flops I'm that excited! Since we have to get out of the house a lot for the showings I'm thrilled we'll be able to be out and about, hit up some parks for long walks and maybe even do something fun like the zoo if we're really feeling adventurous. I truly hope winter just never shows up... but I worry this crazy weather will come back to haunt us and and it'll be snowing in April. Which is not allowed.

I hope everyone has had a good week- and maybe some of you are getting a long weekend? I never got President's Day off while I was working, but it seems a lot of places do. All the schools around us are off today and Monday- sheesh! What's everyone getting into this weekend? Anyone want to entertain us while people traipse through our house and fall in love with it ;)

  1. Ahhh so exciting!!!!! Please share every little detail of the house building/designing process lol. We have been talking about selling our house within the next 2-3 years and have looked into those types of houses, so I am very interested/excited to read all about y'all's experience with it! It's supposed to be warmer here this weekend and next week and I feel the same way!! Hope y'all have a great weekend! :)

  7. Eeeeee! So exciting - I hope you get offers super soon, because I remember how the logistics of having a small child + trying to do showings went... so lovely to have warm weather to take advantage of during the time though! And yeah, no long weekend here. I don't get one for MLK Day either. Bah humbug.

  8. That's great that you've had so much interest in the house already! Enjoy the nice weather this weekend! We're supposed to get 60s here and it is going to be glorious. My office isn't closed Monday, but I took the day off and I'm taking my niece to a children's museum!

  9. That's amazing that you've gotten so many showings so quickly! Houses SELL here before they are ever even officially listed. I hope you have a flawless experience and ge what you deserve! You two have put a lot of time and effort into that home :)

  10. Oh wow, it does sound like the market is hot around there right now! That is a great thing since the interests rates have gone up a little bit lately. Hopefully you guys will have an easy selling process. I cant imagine it is easy to keep your house staged and clean all the time with a little one and all their things! My house is in a constant state of disaster right now. Cant wait to hear your building process. I really want to build our next one but we shall see. I will take anyone's tips if we decide to! Have a great weekend, enjoy the weather.

  12. I am so eager to follow along with your home building journey since that's what we plan to do. Do you mind if I ask what builder you are using? I like getting recommendations - maybe they are in Dayton.
