HPG-1509B-1 – The Wilson Creek
We have lived in our current two bedroom, one bath, 988 square foot home for 12 years. Since we moved in, we’ve subsequently had 2 children. Making it a little cramped to say the least.
So we started looking at other homes. Not much caught our eye in our small town, so we looked into a quality modular home, but they only have so many options available.
That’s when we came across your HousePlanGallery.com site and my wife fell in love with the HPG-1509B-1 plan.
We started in May of 2009 with 1.17 acres on the edge of town, and I went about excavating some trees and brush from the property with the help of some friends and a bulldozer. Once we decided where to place the home on the lot, we started digging for the basement. We did all of the digging and tile drainage ourselves, and basically whatever else we could do for ourselves to save money.
We then hired a contractor to pour the footers and basement for us. Once that was completed, we installed our steel support beams and posts. And finally we hired a contractor to construct the home, as per the blueprints supplied to us from House Plan Gallery.
The contractor has done an excellent job, and we have been able to do alot of the inside work ourselves to save money, like insulate, hang drywall, install doors, etc. The house is shaping up nicely, and we are at the “mudding of the drywall” stage now and hope to complete the home in the next month.
Our kids are so excited to have their own room. We will have 3200 square ft of living space. We won’t know what to do with ourselves.
Thanks House Plan Gallery for helping us find and build our dream home!!
