For those of you who are “inexperienced” in the joys of housebuilding – congratulations.  You’ll live long and prosperous lives.

For the rest of us, we know that the process of building a home is one of long periods of expensive boredom punctuated by moments of even more expensive terror.  We’re highly confident in this theory because we’ve now done it twice.

The blog follows the same pattern.  The tedium can be more than a little “underwhelming.”  Given that, we’ve picked a few of our favorite posts.  If you want an easy way to start “A House In A Field,” we’d suggest that you start here.  (But seriously, it’s a nice day — just go outside.  You’ve got better things to do…)
