our new home

In December of 2014 we started looking for homes. We searched high and low for something that would work for our family, appealed to both Bob and I, and fit within our budget. We put a couple offers on a couple different houses, but nothing ended up working out. The last house we put an offer on was near the pharmacy and when it didn't go through, we decided to build near there.

Bob works 10 hour shifts and the pharmacy is open 9-7. This puts him home anywhere between 7 and 7:30 each night. One thing that I really want, is to have dinner together as a family. If we live close to the pharmacy, then that will more likely happen when Bob can be home within 5 minutes of work being over. 

So we met with our builders in August, picked out our lot, and went to the design center. Our lot is in Spanish Fork, on the border of Mapleton and Spanish Fork. We waited for months and nothing happened until December and then our house took off. We are hoping to move in the first week of March. We are excited for more space, a 2nd bathroom, a garage so there will be no more scraping snow off our cars (even though hopefully the snow will be done by that point) and to live in a neighborhood with young families. 

Here is the floor plan for our house. Except our house is flipped.
