This was us yesterday. It wasn’t a new phone book that got us all excited, though; it was our new house! (Or at least part of it.)
If you’re visiting for the first time, here’s a bit of background: After living in Calgary, Alberta for 30 years or so, we finally decided to make a move to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. We bought land near Qualicum Beach in September of 2016, and for the past three months we’ve been living in a hotel while our house is being built.
We didn’t have the time or budget to build from scratch, so we decided to go with a modular home on a crawl space: an innovative Cape Cod style from Gordon’s Homes in Nanaimo, BC. (Ours is actually a little larger than the one in their photos). Then we’re going to add on a main entrance/mudroom and a garage and workshop.
The site clearing, excavation, and concrete pouring have been exciting to watch… but seeing the two halves of the modular arrive yesterday was a real thrill! Now they’ll install the three second-storey dormers (those will go on today), do the last of the interior finishing, and build on the additions.
Here are some photos of our progress to date. Only a few more weeks ‘til we can move in! (Fingers crossed.) 🙂
