16th April 2018 - wow

We are simultaneously wildly, tremendously excited and at the same time utterly, rationally terrified.
In all of the years that weve owned houses, we have never undertaken a project where were raising a building out of the ground. Its something that we designed, with the help of a rather lovely architect and it will be purpose built to meet our needs. Wow.

I know a shot of some foundations and concrete blocks may not be the most exciting thing most people have never seen but for us, it represents both a new era and a great step forward. Weve been building up to this for more than two years. Weve drawn up ideas, changed them over and over again. We got someone in to make those ideas live and breathe. We haggled with bureaucrats and builders then waited for what seemed like forever.

Now theyre here and in just one week have dug out the trench, laid the concrete and now are building up our future world.

Its not a totally new build, its taking something tired and a bit dilapidated and making it a modern home. Its going to be dirty, noisy and messy for the foreseeable future but hopefully by the end of the year, itll be done. Wow again.
