House thoughts

The plan right now is to have a house built rather than buying one. That way we can have solar panels in place from the start, WiFi built into the walls, and everything set up as we like.

So far these are the thoughts I have about how to have it look inside.

Mediterranean colours throughout; sky blue, terra cotta, brick, with talavera in the kitchen.

Laminate in the kitchen. I thought about textured tile, but too hard to keep clean. White, yellow and blue in there; I'm inspired by Frida Kahlo's kitchen where despite their marriage troubles, the names "Frida" and "Diego" are inscribed above the stove.

That sounds like my dream home. :-)

That sounds wonderful.

I love the idea about Frida and Diego inscribed above the stove. I think they truly loved each other despite the marital rocks.

I think building is the way to go. There will undoubtedly be some headaches along the way, but in the end, you get what you want. Those colors will be perfect for where you live too.

A friend of David's is building a smart house in Los Alamos, solar power, energy efficient, the whole nine, and he will sell us a lot he has here in Santa Fe. We think we can afford to buy the lot now and then when we do sell our houses, we can build.

We actually have some solidifying plans. Building is much cheaper than buying, and although we have to buy the land on our own, the VA does have building loans.

That's really exciting! I wish I could build a house one day (it's cheaper than buying, but planning permission can be very difficult to get)...
