Yesterday we closed on the construction loan through Connecticut River Bank. They made a difficult process almost easy! Now we wait for the mud to dry.
By popular demand, here's more information about our particular First Day Cottage. The photo shown here is taken from the First Day Cottage website. It's the closest thing I can find to what we will have (but our roof will be green!).
The first floor of the main house will have kitchen, bathroom, wood stove (the main heat for the house) with a sitting area. The addition will be the living/music/dining room.
Upstairs will have a bedroom for Maggie and anyone else who comes to visit, an office/recording studio, and right at the top of the stairs, 4 walls of books! I'll post the floor plans when I can figure out how to do it.
The whole thing will be compact, crowded, and just right for Hunt and Allison and visiting friends!
