Ok, so maybe I’m freaking out just a little bit.
We’ve been investigating buying a house for about a year, but things took a sudden and unexpected turn yesterday when we signed a land purchase contract as part of a home-and-land package. Eeeek.
The house plan is nothing special, just a bulk plan-from-a-book called the Rosehill 210. It’s simple, straight-forward, and probably more than we need. The block of land is not too much more than required to fit the house, but is on a quiet street and has a playground/barbeque/walking track all in close proximity. The living/rumpus areas of the house will be facing approx 10 degrees East of due North – a reasonable compromise between building a bulk home and catering to my Tree Hugger nature.
More news and probably pictures to follow as things progress.
