Week 6


After 6 weeks of work, post-foundation, the new Livermore house is going up fast.  It now has windows, most of the roofing is up, and it looks like they will start the stucco this coming week.

Change of Plans


As many of you already know, we have decided to throw in the towel on the Los Gatos project due to the credit markets and the falling real estate values (our current house was not immune!).  There is good news though in that we have taken advantage of the soft RE market and purchased a home in a new community being built in Livermore!  The house will be great for the kids with all three getting their own room, it is right in the best part of the Livermore school system, and it backs up to Robertson Park.  We are scheduled to move in on March 19th and at the pace they have been building I expect them to make this date.  Here are some progress photos we have taken and we will of course post more as it is built.

Baby Noname (“noh-nah-may”)


As many of you know, Amanda and I are expecting our third child in late January-09 and it is going to be a boy.  Here are some of the first pictures of little baby Noname. Also, feel free to leave any name ideas in the comments section (unless you like “Noname” that is).

No More Bottled Water


I know this is not a new trend but Amanda and I have made a pact to do away with bottled water in our lives. Yes, it is easier just to buy a pack of bottled water from target every couple of weeks but we realize the potential impact of that on the environment. Plus, having to fill up a reusable bottle doesn’t really take that much effort. I also made the pledge on FilterForGood for good measure. Filter For Good: Pledge to reduce bottled water waste.

Site Approval!


SCCOfficial as of March 19th we have site approval from Santa Clara County for our house in LG! It has taken almost a year to get here but we finally made it. Now comes the hard part of building permits and spending big $$ to actually build. My best estimates put ground breaking in the July/August time frame with the hopes of moving into the new house in the summer of 2009. Let’s just hope I don’t lose my mind during the build! :-)
