Change of Plans.

About our home and living situation...Previously I wrote a post stating we were going to have a home built in Eagle Mountain. Our plans have since changed. After thinking and praying about it we weren't feeling that great about it. We were exploring our options and things have unfolded and this is the new plan: Ryan and I are going to buy the home we now live in from my father-in-law. It is a lovely home and a great area. The home needs a lot of improvements. It is a lofty project but once it is done it will be great. I will post pictures as time goes on of the improvements we have made. I am very excited about this and we feel great about it. Russ, my father-in-law, will trade places with us and be saving for retirement. It really works out best for everyone involved. So...I guess that is all.

Yeehaw! Now THAT is a plan. How exciting. If you need my expert advice on remodeling, just give me a call. I will consult my Home Depot home improvement book that I have not been able to use yet.
