Hello there! I'm Greg Johnson. When my wife and I were newlyweds, we dreamed of moving out of our tiny apartment and building our dream house. When we went on dates, we'd go drive around new neighborhoods, looking at the lots and the architecture of the homes. Every month, we'd put away some savings into our "House Fund." School, work, and kids always kept getting in the way of actually building a home however. Finally, we had enough money to get started. We had a few contractors in mind after our years of dreaming and research, so we met with them, chose one, and got started. It's been thrilling to watch our house go up! We started this blog to chronicle the construction process and how our dreams are coming true.
