So we're buying a house. Yup. Originally we were going to build a detached garage and convert the existing 1 1/2 car garage to a media room so I can get the rock band and other video game noises out of the house a bit.. but thanks to where the septic drain field is in the back yard, that brilliant plan was zapped... Plan B - build a room off the back of the house.. add lots of insulation to sound proof and then I'd have quiet - or at least a little more quiet... Can you say one room = $65k? Seriously? So I was thinking one morning while sitting at the computer wondering about other options.. how about moving? Oh yeah!! The housing market is actually fairly strong here in town compared to other parts of the country. I searched and found a few houses that we could possibly move in to.. then I saw IT. A newish development that has nice two story houses... I went online and looked and oh yeah! Found a house plan we liked and are building in a newish development... If all goes on schedule, we'll be moving in to a new house sometime early December... or early January. One or the other. What's holding it up? It only takes 75 days to build a house according to the builder.. They have to wait for the perk test to be done and that could take up to 2 months! Seriously? Madison County, get off your butt and do my flipping perk test!!
Okay.. now to get to the good stuff... A new page of tutorial links has been added!
In my house an ottoman is worth its weight in gold. Who doesn't like to put their feet up? I saw a brilliant one that someone on Quilting Board had made... and it was ironic because just earlier yesterday before I saw this post I was actually searching for a tutorial on making a foot stool out of a spackle bucket. Sooo I figured I might as well spread the joy and behold! My newest tutorial links list... Footstools, Ottomans & Tuffet Tutorial Links
So Go Ahead and put your feet up! You deserve it!!
