If you're anything like me, you want to know how people live. I love decorating and knowing people's tastes, so I am one of those people that goes into someone's home and wonders what is behind every door! Well, just in case you're like me, I'll gladly show you exactly what our house looks like. It is pretty "raw" right now, as it is still being built. For the time being, we are living in the VanSant's home. They are a missionary couple that is currently in America on furlough. They return to their home the second week in August, and we will begin living in our own home at that time. Will it be done in time? Well, I sure do hope so!
Just this last week, we had our well dug.... 52 meters deep (57 yards.... more than half a football field deep)! The well man said he has been digging wells for 30 years and has never seen water gush out of a well like it began gushing out of ours. God is blessing us in so many tremendous ways! We have lived for nearly seven years with "come and go" water, so I am thrilled at the thought of always having water!
Here are some quickie details about our house for those of you who may be wondering. Our house sits on about 1/3 of an acre. The house was originally to be nearly 1,600 square feet, but our builder convinced us to put an extra room up in the attic area. Since the project was already started, it took quite some time for us to figure out where to put the stairs. My guess would be that the house is now going to be nearly 2,000 square foot. It will be four bedrooms, 2 baths, with the smallest room being used as a school room since we homeschool.
There is still lots to be done, so please pray earnestly for us. I will keep you updated with the progress. Here are pictures that were taken just last week:
