About to build a new house.

I know it isn’t MINI, although there will be space for a few, but it sure is exciting to be on the verge of building a new house in North Carolina.

We found a basic plan we can modify. The front elevation looks like:

Front

We will be adding on to make an oversized 3 car garage, with provision for a four post lift, and the master bedroom will be upstairs. The wine room will be downstairs, off the den and living room area, near the dining room and kitchen. See in the front, right, the porch? That area will be enclosed, and inside the house, for the wine cellar, then outside, behind there, a little patio. Solar photo voltaic array on roof, facing South, will make this house a power generator. Energy Star certification will happen.

I’ll be off to the site next week to pick a builder, then it’s POA approval, permitting, and we’re a go. Aiming to break ground mid Aug. to Sept. this year – 2009.
