Nothing Certain

Back and forth, back and forth, the question of whether we will build a new house this year just keeps swinging back and forth! We didn’t think we’d be able to afford it, but now based on my dad’s costs on his new house that he’s finishing up right now, we might be able to make it work! So we are in the final stages of getting our blueprints done up. Here’s “our house” from the front:

Ahh, what a beauty. So once we have prints in hand, it’s time to start gathering estimates to see if this dream will become a reality sooner than later. It is in God’s hands and I am still totally content to stay where we are. If we do build, I’ll be happy too! I know we are not planning to live in this trailer forever. Knowing that, I’d really like to get going on our house so that we can start paying down the mortgage now and be done sooner! If you think of us, please pray that we’ll get this all figured out. I’ve watched Dad build many houses over the years but the learning curve of self-contracting is STEEP just the same.

    a new home! how exciting!! i\’m sure once the ball gets rolling, you won\’t regret it. especially with saskatoon’s [and area\’s] booming market. prices will only go up so it\’s better to get in before it gets too insane. i hope things come together and that you guys have clarity and wisdom on what to do. it\’ll be an exciting adventure. the first step is probably the hardest step. i know someday we\’d love to build, but it likely won\’t happen for a long time. we\’re just glad we already own our place, and that we\’ll be able to make money whenever we do decide to sell. good luck! i\’ll be sure to keep you in prayer about the decision.
