Back to the Beginning

How do you know where an idea comes from or when it starts? I think it is only in hindsight that it is easier to retrace the steps that built idea upon idea, and then decisions and commitments, until the original thought has been made a reality. Even then, it is hard to say where one idea ends and another begins because they are all so linked together. I have always dreamed of building a house. But when did the idea to build THIS house begin? And why on Sunset Hill?

Starting in the Middle

Welcome to my blog about building a house on Sunset Hill! I'm starting somewhere in the middle of the story, with a site already purchased, a design already created, a permit already issued, and a foundation already poured. A chronicle of those steps alone could easily have filled 100+ posts. At this point, there is no other option but to jump into the story and fill in the background as needed along the way.

The purpose of this blog is to create a record for ourselves of the process of building this particular house. If it is also of interest to family and friends who are following our progress, we'll consider this blog a success!
