through the lens: November 2016 in Review

November flew by for us, how about you guys? We saw all sorts of weather in November, and it's tempting to say that fall turned to winter during this month, as by the end it was below freezing and snowy. We hosted Thanksgiving at our house, which I've posted about separately, here.

We also changed our minds about our our building plans, and then changed our minds again - there are so many decisions to be made when it comes to building a home. We are building a smaller home right now, with plans to eventually use it as a vacation rental after we've built a slightly larger permanent family home on the other side of our property in the next five to ten years. We also want to have a shop and a pole barn on the property, which adds up to quite a few buildings, even on five acres (which really isn't very much when you have multiple home sites and want a feeling of spaciousness and privacy). We want to make sure we think through every decision thoroughly when it comes to building locations, and it takes time to make up our minds. November was full of decision making when it came to layout of buildings, and lots of dirk work to go with those decisions.

Adding his own revision to our plans.
