Out of the Ground!

June 24/18

Who would have thought that Google and YouTube would be teaching Home Building Techniques?

The end of May saw Ross building the pony walls in anticipation of getting ready to install the first floor joists and sheeting.  That went pretty quickly and we found ourselves with some time to plant the garden and do a little yard maintenance.  Our new neighbour had a borrowed bobcat and came over and voluntarily and levelled the ground around the foundation so that the first delivery of materials could get close to the house.  An amazing gift to us.

A mini update…2247 Enns Road has new owners.  They take possession at the end of this month.  We are feeling so grateful to have that behind us and to not have double the bills coming in, having to turn up the heat for showings and best of all…Karen doesn’t have to keep the lawns groomed this summer on that parcel of land.

Our realtor, Terry Chalaturnyk with Royal Lapage in Campbell River has done such a good job for us.  Many accepted offers later…she got us to the closing.  She is so patient and has been a real blessing to us. 

We are seeing that this adventure is coming together one step at a time but never much further ahead than that.  We are exercising our faith muscles and growing better and closer to each other and the One that holds the keys to our new home, because of it.

Thank you for being a part of our journey with us.

P.S. All this happened while Karen was having a little Gramma Time in Saskatchewan – another blessing!

The Seacan Finally Gets it’s Siding…Waiting for Paint

It’s been a busy month…not for us…but for the professionals that handle (look at/assess/change/approve) our home plans. So with nothing better to think about, we have been dreaming of Spring coming and the rains abating allowing us to dig and get started on our home. Continue reading

5 Weeks of “Vacation”…

Time for another update!

Proud Grandparents!

Proud Grandparents!

The day after the last post, Ross flew into Calgary and met Karen there to attend a first ever Adrian Cousin’s Reunion where 16 of the 26 cousins met for the first time (more on that in my next post).  And then we went on to meet our sweet grand baby, Roman and to visit with Michael and Courtney in Saskatoon.  This started Ross’ 3 weeks of vacation which got increased to 5 weeks off.  Needless to say we got a lot done and had some wonderful down time with 5 weeks off!
