    well our house is done, my husband is a very talented person he built it from the ground up it has taken him 1 year and 10 mon.. but we are moved in except for the new 90 gal tank my husband is going to make the stand for it starting tomorrow!! her are a few pics of the house
    not everything is all unpacked yet and I'm starting to get the decorations up but I LOVE MY NEW HOUSE!! and the best part its PAID FOR OUT OF OUR OWN POCKET!! :^: I had stock from a job that paid for part of it and then my parents and I sold our lake cabin and that finished it, all we have left to do is finish off the walk out basement and the siding

    Nice. Nothing better than a great new house and no payments.

    Awesome job! Do you think your husband can handle making a tank stand? :shock: I mean, he built a house and all...but a tank stand...that's a whole 'nother ballgame! :mrgreen:

    Congrats! Can't wait to see the new tank stand ;)

    Very nice!

    I couldn't imagine building a house all by myself in a million years.
    Heck, i couldn't even imagine building one with a lot of help!

    I don't think there's alot of people that can say that they actually built their house. Not designed, but actually built. Awesome.

    I meant design as in you guys told the builder what you wanted and he built it. You guys did everything.
