I've been wickedly hooked on this website now for weeks. It's unbelievably informative! I can't believe I'm actually sitting here doing a journal. Never thought I would become so involved, but after reading the others I can see what an awesome memoir to have after a LONG project. So what the heck!

Since my last post of July 2007, I have gone through a lot of "can I do this, should I do this?"  My final answer is YES I can and I am going to take the plunge.  I had my plans drawn by a local plan service in Augusta, GA.  Actually I had three plans that I liked so I took a little something from all three and had my plan service design me a house. It came out beautiful.  The total cost was approx. $2,400 for a 4,287 sf house design. The house will have 3.5 baths, three-car garage, three bedrooms, study, media room, living room, kitchen, laundry room and family room.

I have obtained my permits, insurance and paid for the water and sewer tap fee.  We just had the land cleared and the crushed rocks trucked in for the driveway.

The house will sit upon 5.85 acre lot with a two-acre pond. 

Other things that I have done to date is to purchase my cabinets. I know this is a bit unorthodox, however, I received such a good deal on the cabinets that I couldn't pass them up.  I saved on 60% off retail for the cabinets. I also purchased some chandeliers on clearance (three) recently from Home Depot.  I also purchased a pedestal sink from eBay.

I am constantly looking for ways to save money and searching for clearance items.

I will be uploading pictures soon.
