By the beginning of summer we had a hole in the ground and from there everything went in fast forward right up until we closed and moved in the second week of September. It was so fun to see it all take shape! (And since the lot was just five or so minutes up the road from our current home it ended up being an evening summer tradition to go check out the progress and hang out at the park - yes, the PARK! - right behind our future backyard.)
Anyway - here it is! The Evolution of Our House!
|Our lot! We LOVE how much space is between the houses and having the neighborhood playground right out our back gate!|

|Front view that looks out on Herriman farm land and beyond that the Oquirrh Mountains. Caleb is standing in his bedroom window on the left, Cameron and Noah are in one of the two bonus/playroom windows, and Olivia is in her window on the right.|
|In love with the long, covered front porch!|
|Cameron's first order of business after moving in was a tree. (And there will be many more to come!)|
We've been in the house now for a little over six months and I can honestly say I wouldn't change a thing about when/how we did it, the floor plan we picked or the design choices we made. It has been the perfect home for our little family, and in a neighborhood and area that we love. We are fortunate to be able to stay in the same elementary school and still be super close to our wonderful friends in our previous neighborhood, all while making new ones here. To sum up - I am feeling so blessed and am NEVER MOVING AGAIN!
