Ladies and Gentlemen WE HAVE A HOLE!

Well some of you know that we are building a house in Rigby. It is through a program where there are a group of families and we all build each others houses. We got to choose from 4 house plans and we have to stick to them and o one can move in until they are all finished. So it has been a slow start because of weather and other Technicalities. It will take a year or so to build because we are building it.
It is just a one floor house about 1400 square feet but it will be perfect for awhile. We already have plans how to change it up a bit.
We (when I say we I mean Robin and our home teacher Nick are learning a lot) Thanks Nick!
Right now we only have to work on the house 12 hours a week until the weather gets nicer then it might be back to 30 hours per household, so I might have to get out and pretend I am being helpful.
We are excited and can't wait to have a house of our own.

Exciting! I want one! A house that is! Sorry to hear about the bread! I'm impressed that you even tried to make bread. I'm too lazy to do that! It is yummy though.

The house I bought in Boise b4 I met daniel was 1400sqft. It is as perfect size for getting started. Big enough to grow into but small enough to know what you would want to change for your next house.

By the way, how on earth did you dig a hole in that cold, frozen place??? Just looking at the picture makes me shiver. burr
