Building our marriage by building a house
For years my husband and I have had a dream to build a home with everything we ever wanted in it. We fantasized about it, we would talk about our dreams over date night dinners, and for years I pinned every desire I had ever dreamed about in a home. By the grace of God we were able to build on raw land in our dream location.
We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into.
I am a believer in keeping things as non-toxic as possible…which I am pretty sure is a builder’s nightmare! But in order to protect my health and my family’s health, I stood strong in this belief. My husband supported me on this, especially in the beginning when we were still in our fantasy planning stage. There were days when I made cuts of bells and whistles in order to be able to afford the no-VOC paints and natural countertop materials. But no one made more cuts than my dear husband. And because of this, I saw our marriage with a whole new set of eyes.
