I called the city's permit office to inquire about something today and discovered that in our city you can build your own house (not hiring a contractor) as long as you get the proper inspections.
I'm not sure why this came as such a shock, but it did and sent my mind racing with excitement. Our house with our own hands? We could totally do that!
Then I about laughed myself silly. How long has it been since our renovation sold? Not even 2 months and I'm already over the pain and heartache and having no time for anything and never having the right tool and hemorrhaging money and never-ending trips to the hardware store and...
Would I give up weekend naps on the couch next to this gorgeous little girl?
And just like that it passed. We are meeting with the bank and a contractor next week.
I am though endlessly amazed by the overwhelming desire to create something with my own two hands. I think I need an outlet. Dollhouse stuff? Sewing? Suggestions?
