Lay of the Land

Well, we got good news about the contract. And we went to the property to take a look at the land and start developing a plan for the house. The first step in the process is to cut down some trees. Atlanta has a pretty strict tree removal ordinance, which we have to comply with. We talked with the city's arborist, who will approve which trees we can remove and which we can't.

We also are going to start working on the house plan. Today, we put together a list of things we need and things we we want. The plan should come together in the next couple weeks. Lots of drawing. Lots of dreaming. Lots of wishing. Hopefully I'll do some budgeting, too.

Well, with out further ado, the pictures:

Lake Claire Park
This is a shot of Lake Claire Park, which is two doors down from the lot.

City Property Trees
The view up the current driveway. The green house on the left is right on the setback line. The property extends very close to that house.
