Last week I shared my most recent news with you that we just purchased land to build a house. Not just any house, but our very own custom home!! Although I know this is going to be a slow process, it’s also going to be a very exciting one! And, get ready, I plan on sharing every bit of it with you!
If you follow me on Pinterest you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been Pinning house plans like crazy! It’s so much fun! It’s like a dream that is about to come true!
However, no matter how many floor plans I think I like, there is always one that I go back to time after time. It’s one that I tore out of Southern Living Magazine YEARS ago.
You see, before Pinterest came along, I saved (and still have to this day) hard copies of my favorite ideas. Recipes, floor plans, decorating ideas, party ideas, holidays, ect, they were all torn out of magazines, separated into categories and filed into binders.
One of those ripped pages was this. . .
Abberley Lane was Southern Living’s 2002 Idea House. I was just 23 years old when I tore this page out of the magazine! Ten years later (man, did I just admit my age?), I am still in love!
Wanna see the inside?
Okay, so there are a couple of modifications I want to make to this plan, both inside and out, but it’s still my favorite. I love it!
Yet I still find myself looking at others and thinking, “Oh, I like this. Double porches would be fabulous!”
“Or maybe just one really large porch?”
YIKES! I’ve come to realize, that while this is going to be a fun process, it’s also going to be a very difficult one!
I cannot wait to start this process and I cannot wait to share with you every step along the way! I’m also going to be asking for your input and opinion along the way, so be prepared! I want any and all advice and/or feedback you have to give. Dish it out people! We are going to have so much fun!
