Very nice. I hope to find a couple of acres in the country one day and build 1000-1200 sq ft cabin. A lake view would be nice, but very hard to find around here.

That. Is. Awesome. Great story and love the updates. Just out of curiosity, how far from a decent size town (25- 50k population) are you?

Sweet. I grew up half of my life in Virginia (Tidewater), so I'm somewhat familiar with that part of Virginia. That is a beautiful part of the state.

Keep the updates coming...

Will do. I'll prbably try to arrange a trip around the Fourth of July. I have been very happy with my builder. Little talk and lots of action. I am always amazed at how much progress he makes between my visits.

Had a great visit to the mountains this past week. The weather was nearly perfect. Observed fireworks all up and down the river from a high vantage point. The house continues to progress nicely with no major problems. Discovered a few minor issues which the builder promptly corrected. Pictures tell the story.

The "Lagoon" created by islands in river:


I can hardly wait to get down there again in a few weeks. By that time hardwood will have been laid, the exterior and porches completed and the cabinets installed.
