Building a House

Building a house is stressful. How is the stress? Isn't it stressful?

I heard all three of these as we told people we were building. I didn't get it. How could it be stressful? We went with a big name builder. We got to pick what we want. We didn't have to do the work. This would be easy. Or so I thought!

Fast forward to now. I am officially stressed! After March 31st we have no place to live if our house isn't done or we aren't able to close. Our bricks were back ordered for weeks. We have them now and they JUST went on the house. More than half the month, there haven't been any workers in our house. And now it's crunch time. Will they finish in time for the VA appraisal? Will the VA appraiser come at the beginning or end of the 2 week time frame (hoping for the end)? Will everything else work out?

I'm trying to trust and have faith that God has a plan and He will take care of us. Worst case scenario, we move into storage for a week or two and stay with family.

On a more positive note, here's what's going on with the house now.
1. Brick is on!
2. Cabinets are in.
3. Countertops are scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.
4. Tiling is scheduled to start Wednesday!

I know it will all be worth it in the end to have a house just how we want it. And I'm glad that's the case, because I'm never moving again!
