that all sounds amazing scotch!We worked with a surveyor and septic designer to locate the septic system, and map out the elevations of the property. As it turns out, everything that follows hinges on the location of the septic design.
The main living area will be open to the 2nd story roof.
We didn't want a house that's just a bunch of box-shaped rooms. And we want the ability to have single-floor living. The upstairs will have a loft (overlooking the great room), a bedroom with bath (for our daughter), and an office area/ guest room. The master bedroom is on the 1st floor, as is the garage, porch, and deck. The basement has a partial walkout, where I can put the mower, and maybe have a game room.
But what we're getting is a hell of a lot better than those cookie-cutter communities.
We're at the cul-de-sac of a very secluded, established neighborhood. We're not looking out at any other houses; we have several acres, leading to a watershed protection zone.
Thanks, I plan to post occasional updates. They're going to start clearing the lot next week (so I hear), just enough for the house, driveway and septic, with a minimal yard. Although we also want to clear the southerly area of tall pines.that all sounds amazing scotch!
when i was a kid we had a septic tank and i was always in awe of the guys who came to clean it with their big truck and giant vacuum hose. i wanted to be a "septic man" as i called it, when i grew up.
open floor plan seems so very nice. this along with the high ceilings is perfect!
privacy with a lots of land is a dream location!
i really hope you keep us all posted with pics of the construction.
once again, that's beautiful scotch. it really looks idyllic.
to the ticks, all of a sudden it's scotch season.Be careful.
It's tick season.
We were originally thinking it could be October. But there was a big delay in the planning/financing cycle, wherein a detailed construction build spec had to be drawn-up by the builder, which then kicked-off a whole financing/appraisal activity by the bank. So normally you'd expect to get financing for construction, and then the builder would make a plan, but it kind-of works the other way around.if everything stays on track when do you expect to be living in your new home?
