Begin at the Beginning
Little House on the Hillside

Saturday, January 21, 2006
A few things became clear to me as we began this process. One was that it was going to be long. Very long. Excruciatingly long. Mind-numbingly, soul-crushingly long. And we haven't even started building yet.
Another thing was that we needed to record all of the events that are going to make up this grand adventure, for there already have been many happenings worth preserving for the history books (even though, may I remind you, we have yet to lift a hammer).
Thus, this blog. In these early stages, posts may be short and infrequent, once we get you up to speed. As time rolls onward, however, look for stories and photos from the hillside. Thanks for visiting.

And this was how the house building blog started. Three entries later it appeared to take a six-month hiatus, but that may have had a lot to do with the fact that we were dealing with a flaky landowner and a slimy real estate agent and as a result, that summer was the summer of our discontent. We had hoped to start building in April, but didn't start until September if that gives you any idea of the frustration that awaited us.
