House is up for sale

May 23, 2006

The house we owned in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

We are finally at a point where we can put the house up for sale. Thursday the sign goes up, and if all goes as the realtor says it should, the house will be sold and deal closed by the end of June. The land purchase is on schedule to close by the end of this month. And, I am getting ready to move to Tucson the first week of June, the Cheryl will follow after the house is sold.

Picked the lot to buy in Tucson

Apr 30, 2006

The desert area of our lot to build our house.

Last weekend I was in Tucson, AZ looking at some lots out in the Diamond Bell Ranch area. DBR in about 22 miles southwest of Tucson, off Aho Hwy. I went down there with a list of 4 lots to look at and pick one. Turns out the lot we are going to buy was not on that list.

On building a house

Apr 11, 2006

Moss covered trees in the Olympic National Park.

We are planning on relocating to Tucson, AZ. Time for warmth and sunshine. Been in the Seattle area far too long. Moss is starting to grow on me. I don't want to become a 'mossback' as some call Seattle-ites.

So Cheryl and I have designed a house, the house, the one we are going to build in Tucson. Actually, about a half-hour southwest of Tucson in a subdivision called Diamond Bell Ranch. We've looked at hundreds of plans, online and in books, and decided to design our own floorplan. I have, and it is good. It's a U-shaped house, with a swimming pool in the inside of the U, and the entry at the 'bottom' of the U. There will be a detached garage with a covered 'breezeway' between it and the house. (Not sure if 'breezeway' is the correct term.)
