We realized last night it's been a long time since we've posted anything about our house. I'll give a quick update: we're building!
We always knew it'd be most ideal to build a house, but were ultimately turned off by the greater cost and the sheer logistics of it all. So for months we searched for an already-built home we'd be able to modify, but found there are few if any sufficient to meet our unique needs. Recently however, a local builder reached out to offer his services at a greatly discounted price. A group of our friends have also come together to assist us with much of the logistical side of things, also providing us with their skills and services for a fraction of what they're worth.
Between the fundraiser, the discounts, and what Michigan no-fault auto insurance will assist us with, Emily and I are able to see this home as more of an attainable reality than ever before!
Our long search for a house has now become a search for land on which to build a house. We're so very thankful for all the help we have received and are receiving with what we quite simply would otherwise be unable to do on our own. To God be the glory!
