Construction begins!!! (Soon)


It’s been a while since we’ve had a posting but mostly because there hasn’t been much to tell. (Our apologies to Mrs. Flaum who’s voiced her protest at the delay between postings)

Since the closing, we’ve just been getting our ducks in a row and figuring out all the building rules for construction (plus dealing with some over-zealous neighbors) and lining things up with our contractor.

Amanda’s excited to design our dream home and personally I’m excited to not have to do as much…although I did have the unfortunate experience of having to talk design in Amanda’s place while she was away for two weeks. My go-to line at this point is ‘whatever Amanda says.” It’s just like in my previous life, when all else failed I would say, ‘I’m just happy to be here!’

Not much else yet…we are hoping to break ground next week although I’m still waiting on one last piece of information from someone on our board. Ideally we wanted to move in by our anniversary, but now if we move in by god’s anniversary that will work too. (I’m not sure when God’s anniversary actually is…is that the new year…and what anniversary is it we’d be celebrating…anyway, I digress).

I’m not complaining about having to spend what I think will be an extra two months with my in-laws…it’s just that I’m complaining about having to spend an extra two-months with my in-laws.

Until next time.

Well it's about time! Those of us who live in the South have only this blog and sparse communications from your wife to get in touch with what's going on in the Mittfarb household. Sheesh.
2 months, huh? Wanna come take our extra room down here?!!?!?
