An online journal documenting the planning and building process of our modern home from start to finish. It is intended to share our experiences throughout this project with all those interested in modern design.

The long beginning...

Here is where we stand in the project so far. Anne and I surveyed the property last November in order to produce a detailed topographic map of the site. We'll use the information for determining the drainage pattern as well as to get the actual property lines on record. As it is, the only official survey records on file down at the county are very inaccurate and very much incorrect. The nearly 100 year old hand drawn records show the existing street going into what is the lake and waterway. Thus one of our first tasks is to get the correct property boundaries recorded down at the county. Meanwhile, we are also looking for an architect who we feel is capable of producing a design that we like.

More to come!
