The New Garrett Residence

Almost 2 years ago, Matt and I found a piece of land that we fell in love with. We have spent the past several months designing, planning,  dreaming and scheming The New Garrett Residence!

Today, I am so excited to finally share some details with you! It has been so hard not to say anything to you all for so long! It has felt like being pregnant and waiting to share the big news until you are finally showing!!! Well, we are busting over here and are so thrilled to announce that we have broken ground and have started building our dream home! 

We’ve lived in our current home for almost 13 years. We have loved every minute in this house and will shed tears when we leave it. The New Garrett Residence is in a better location for us with incredible views! Matt and I have always dreamt of building a custom home together for our family to gather for years to come. 

I plan to share the building process with all of you here on my blog and on Instagram. You can also follow along and get sneak peeks into my design inspiration by following my Pinterest account

This house was designed 100% from the collaborative efforts of our architect, Matt and my vision and some tweaking from our dear friends, Cara and Tom Fox, amazing owners of The Fox Group. We had so much fun meeting with them and showing them our vision and taking notes on how to perfect our plan.

I’ve laid in bed, with my mind racing so many nights! Simply trying to figure how to make a room or wall work. How to add more character to a certain space? What exterior paint colors to use? The list goes on! We have only just begun in the design decision process, but I am learning to enjoy the journey! It was incredible to take this project from ideas, to sketches, to plans, then 3D renderings and now our real life dream home!

We were so blessed to be led to a fabulous builder, Jada Homes, who we adore! Finding the right builder is so key when building your dream home. More on that later!

Here are a few photos of our lot, the views, our ground breaking ceremony and some fun shots of the process so far. I hope you will join me along this road as I share our journey building The New Garrett Residence!

Make sure you read the end of the post for another exciting announcement!!!

Our favorite tradition has become nightly trips to the lot to watch the sunset and let the kids and Chloe run on the golf course behind the house. We have killer sunsets here in Arizona!The New Garrett ResidenceThe New Garrett ResidenceThe New Garrett Residence The New Garrett Residence The New Garrett ResidenceWe loved climbing the fill dirt piles!
