I'm writing this blog to chronicle the building of my new home. I purchased the lot in March 2013. It is in a courtyard home community and there used to be another house here. It burned down several years ago and all that was left on the lot was the driveway and the electric and water hook-ups. This is what the lot looked like the day I purchased it. I also had tentatively finalized the house plan at this time. I've added pictures of the plan layout and the front elevation.
Front Elevation (after several other drafts were rejected by the HOA)
