    Right! Could I borrow yours or should I steal one from the Amazon Warehouse in Kenosha?

    Don't have one :) And if you steal one you could run into issues getting it registered with the FAA :D

    Step x: take all photos with iPhone?

    Nice home, Charlyee. Now you have plenty of room for that larger iPhone 7 Plus.

    Curious. Do you have a walk-in iphone case closest?

    Thanks vf, all the photos may have been taken with an iPhone, most of them were taken by the construction supervisor and he has a iPhone 6.

    Funny about the walk in closet but I only have the one case that's on my phone and I plan to keep it that way

    Thanks palandri, it just looks big in reality it is downsized by 700+ sq ft, one bedroom, one bathroom and half a car space, than our now place. The lot is also smaller by one quarter acre.

    Real housewives of Kenosha, good grief!!! Lol

    Actually moving further NW from you, closer to my work.

    Step 8 - wait for the Village to lift the temporary road weight restrictions due to Spring thaw. WE Energies, concrete, and brick trucks are over the posted limit of 6 tons.

    Haha vf. I will admit that the reception isn't as good as it is in the present location, part of the reason being the population density is much higher in the new location.

    Present location:
    Area 48.72 square miles
    Population 24, 687 (2012)

    New Location:
    33.31 square miles
    Population 35, 802

    Tentative move date June 15.

    A nice cell tower income stream would keep you supplied with new phones, gadgets, and neat cars.

    I live in a county of 58 sq miles and 28,000 population. Similar, but many rolling hills block line of sight. And trees. Roads here are tunnels made from tall trees.

    It is a beautiful place but it does seem a bit odd that the kitchen is so close to the front door. I am used seeing the kitchen toward the back of the house. Otherwise, congrats. Oh! Where's the pool going? (LOL)

    Thanks KJ, no pool. I live in WI remember? Lol

    Actually would you believe the kitchen is further away from the front door than it is is the present house?

    It seems to be pretty much the norm around here.

    Hey Scrumhalf, nice to see you back here.

    Thanks, building a house is way beyond what my patience is capable of handling gracefully :D
