We decided about four years ago that we wanted to live in Chestertown, MD, on the Eastern Shore. We purchased a lot just outside of town in the summer of 2007, and spent the next four years planning the building of our house. This included coming up with a house design, selecting a building contractor, and getting a construction loan. We plan to move this Fall.
We broke ground on June 1 of this year. I decided on that day to begin recording our experiences in this blog. I also wanted to describe the phases of the project leading up to that point. I hope this may be entertaining and, in some ways, informative.
