Batman is protecting our future home!

Batman was spotted on the lot a few days before Thanksgiving. He must have been protecting our future home!

Rain Rain Go AWAY!!!

We we were hoping to start pouring concrete for the basement after Thanksgiving, but it has been very wet in Northport/Tuscaloosa. In the mean time, Brent and I are still trying to decide what we want the exterior of the home to look like. I think we have decided on some shade of red brick with light beige shakes. My job this week is to drive around neighborhoods in Tuscaloosa and Northport and find what I/we like. It is a tough job, but someone has to do it. Plus it is cold outside so it will give me an opportunity to get out of the apartment. Hopefully by the end of the week there will be new pictures, if not of the lot/house, then of our Christmas tree and outside decorations at the apartment.

Breaking Ground

So on November 9th, the Pettus family broke ground on our new home. The beautiful wooded lot has been cleared and the basement has been dug.

Life has changed for the Pettus family

I realize that it has been a long while since I have updated my blog, but that is changing! We have exciting news. The Pettus family has bought 2 and a half acres, sold our house of 8 years, and is starting to build a new house. Check in when you can and come on this journey with us.
