We have a ROOF!!!!!!!!!!

Hallelujah! I haven't been updating you too much on the house plans, but there's a reason. We went through a period of a few weeks where we had the perfect house plan drawn up...and no roof! What I mean by no roof, is our architect was having a hard time figuring out how to make the roof work with our plan. Yea, fun right? He created the PERFECT (and I mean perfect) floor plan for what I wanted....but had some roof issues. "Roof talk" is like a foreign language to me; especially when they start using words like gable and hip??? Basically, I am pretty much roof illiterate and unfortunately so is J!

But, today folks....the builder has found a way to make the roof work with my perfect floor plan!!! I am super excited that we are past this roof drama! My goodness, I never thought I would get so worked up over a dumb roof. And I'm sure this is just the beginning!

It seems as though we may have more time to plan if the market continues to SUCK! Come on economy....TURN AROUND or my April start date is gonna have to be pushed back! ERRRRRRRRR!
Obviously, these pictures are not exactly what our house will look like. Our house is being customized and we haven't even seen a drawing of the front yet. These pictures our just off of homeplans.com. However, this IS how our roof will look! And these houses both are the same style that we are planning to go with! I think the finished product will be a combination of both.
