My dad came over last night to hash out a lot plan with Jimmy. At the last minute I remembered that I should probably take a picture of our "lot" lying on my kitchen floor with all the cut outs of the houses, pool, shop, shed etc. They were so funny with their big roll of butcher paper and both of them sitting on the floor moving stuff around. The conversation mostly revolved around "How big should the shop be?"
For those of you who don't know...My parents and I are building our houses right next door to each other. Yeah, yeah, I've heard it all..."What? Next door to your parents?!" Yep! That's right our houses will be ten feet away from each other. We will share a back yard. We will drop in unexpectedly on each other. We will eat many meals together. We will swim all summer with our friends and a million kids. When the next lot over comes up for sale we will talk Warren and Casey and Joe and Kelsey into building there. Someday, I will get on my soap box and preach to you about my favorite thing to preach about...People losing their connection with other people and isolating themselves from the rest of the world in the name of independence.
