We are still waiting for the guys who will do the foundation. We are getting a good lesson in patience. Even though we are in a time of waiting, we are still doing a few things.
First up on our list this week is to get the building permit. When the foundation guys are ready, we will be too. This is an easy step but is also the first big expense. Of course as soon as those foundation guys show up, that amount will seem like spare change.
Second is making a price list of building supplies. I know we will not cover everything in this first trip to the home supply store. This will cover the basic items that we will definitely need. The larger plan is to make purchases from this list when coupons are released. Building a new home is not cheap, but we do plan to save where we can. Those dollars add up over time and turn into less money that we need to borrow.
