  • Our New House Now Has a Lawn

    That’s all. No other real update to share. We now have a lawn. 🙂 This is what Sean gets to cut starting in a month or two. The lot is about the same size as our current house, but the new house has such a bigger footprint that cutting the lawn should take a lot …

    New House, Still on Schedule

    The first real winter storm of the year finally hit this past week, but it doesn’t seem like it’ll have any impact on progress at the new house.
