Thank you all for the wonderful inspiring comments keeping us encouraged up at the Momplex! My sweet husband, he works all day up there, and then comes home and reads your comments, and every once in a while, I catch him grinning to himself. You are making a huge difference to us!
This isn't the first time we've built a home, but I tell you what, this is the first time we've built this BIG, the first time we've built entirely with ICF ARXX blocks, and this is the first time we've built putting quality and energy efficiency first and foremost. Wouldn't do it for our selves ... but for our Moms? Of course we are going the extra mile!
But behind the positiveness, I can tell you, it has been hard to tackle such a huge project. There are days when it's not said, but we definitely think, Let's just call a contractor ... and get it over with ... There have been days ...
But we just keep going.
Grandpa Tim keeps showing up to help us out, the Ram keeps putting his tool belt on, and one screw at a time, we are DIYing this Momplex. And I want to thank you for helping us stay on track and keeping us inspired. Without you reading, supplying us with tips and ideas, offering encouragement, I know we'd not be where we are today.
And today, we are finally at the last stage of the exterior of the Momplex. Today, we start SIDING!!!!!!!
Okay, before I get too excited, we still have to put decks on, bring in utilities, landscape, pour sidewalks ... but some of this stuff can wait until spring, and essentially, after the siding is done, we can move inside and start working on making this Momplex Mom's home!
