This Land is Our Land

After spending over two years looking for a new place to call "home", we finally decided to purchase this wooded lot, in a new subdivision close to town. Our closing was today. The lot is just over 2 acres and I really look forward to Shimmer and Shine growing up here and having a wonderful yard to play in, in the years to come. We can't wait to move their swingset over, which is still at our old house. Lots of trees to cut in the meantime...

Visiting Connor Homes

In January, just before we were ready to order another houseplan (one which we loved the floorplan but had reservations about the exterior character of the home), we decided we owed it to ourselves to contact Connor Homes, just to see if building with them was in the realm of possiblity. After several phone conferences in mid to late January with their director of business development, Gail Rice, our family made the trip to Middlebury, VT and visited Connor Homes on February 12th, 2010. We made a day of it and spent the morning working with Steve Haskell on the exterior design of our new home and the afternoon with Kate Fitzgerald on the interior floorplan and design. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgable or better-suited design team. Before leaving, Gail gave us a tour of the factory. Shimmer took the photos above. Manufacturing was already done for the day, but we did get to meet most of the crew and even the owner, Mr. Mike Connor. It was the perfect ending to a productive day!
