Over the weekend, we continued to crunch numbers, talk to our realtor, look at model homes, look at house plans, talk with our contacts in Heber, and so on.
We found a house plan that we are very excited to build, and call our own. We also decided that we are going to try to sell our home now. Our house went on the market this morning.
We never did get a solid answer on if they can hold the lot for us or not, we just decided to sell now and see what happens anyway. We realized that it will be about the same either way.
We really, really like the lot we found in Heber. It is in a cul-del-sac, and it has plenty of room for our house and for our kids to run and play. It is in a very cool neighborhood as well.
The more it sinks in, the more I can feel that Heber just fits us. There are so many things about it that we love and have been looking for in a place to settle and raise our family. To me, it is like finding our Colorado Springs in Utah. It feels so open, free, and serene. I feel like we will be in the place (the state) where the Lord asked us to be, and also in a place where we feel our spirits can connect and our family will be happy. It is the Lords will combining with ours. And that feels good.
We are trying to be pretty relaxed while selling our home. We would love to sell it now, but if it doesn't sell, we will just wait until spring and try again. We aren't in a rush, but we are excited to get things going.
If our home does sell soon, we will rent in our current neighborhood, or very close by, in order to let the kids finish out the school year, and their sports, here in Herriman. That way they can finish things out here while the home is being built in Heber. Once the home is done, we will move to Heber.
I am very excited to start planning our home, picking things out, and customizing it. It is a lot of work, and has been already, but it is really exciting and fun too.
So here we go. Wish us luck!
