241 New Town Road

The Wilsons of New Town Road. That's us! We've been working really hard towards this dream of building our own home and it's finally becoming a reality. I can hardly believe that we've only owned this piece of land a little more than a year! Ben has spent countless hours out there, clearing and burning, leveling and digging. After a year's worth of work, we are finally building the home we've always dreamed of.

Seeing the whole process really makes you appreciate every little detail of the home and land that it sits on. We have six acres, mostly wooded. A small pond, which Ben dug himself. And a lovely little dock that Ben built for us. Peyton loves it down by the water! She's completely at home splashing back and forth, barking at us to throw the stick. The driveway is nice and long and sort of meanders it's way to the back of the property, where our work-in-progress now sits. We have a foundation now! And the framing is still going up. But I can see the shape of my living room and kitchen, the huge, FANTASTIC master bedroom closet, the two-car garage... all of it is slowly appearing before our eyes, board by board. 2350sq feet total... not including the garage and porches. Perfect size to settle down and start a family in (NOT YET PEOPLE! We're waiting for the little ones!) *L*

Well, here's to the holidays and looking back on a year that I can't believe actually happened to me. So many good things. Really good things. But, we're not done yet... lots more to come for the Wilsons on New Town Road.
