Our new project: Shot Gun, New Orleans Style House

My wife and I recently decided it was time to build a small home.  We have 7 children but we don't need much so my wife (www.houseplangirl.com) designed us a very nice, 1,100 sq ft home.  We are almost finished with it and so far we absolutely love it.

Here are some pics of the process:


Here is the foundation work we did.

Almost done with the exterior:


We decided to go with butcher block counter tops.  I think they would be a good option for a skoolie. They are very durable and cost effective.  We went with American Walnut.

Love to see families choosing to be responsible with their living space size. The design is stunning and filling it with children is the perfect icing on the cake! Congrats on your home!
