” Jenna and I were always destined to have an adventurous future. While anticipating a point when our relationship would move to the “engaged” status we were faced with the shock of the fires here in Sonoma County. While facing aftermath of the fires and how it directly impacted our family, we clung to one another and the next step to our relationship began to unfold.
Jenna and I were in a constant state of finding a balance between the joy we had in our lives and dealing with such loss and heart ache from the fires, but out of all of the pain we found a chance to see the blessings in all of this. There was an inspiration to build our own home in the neighborhood I grew up in. This inspiration came from rebuilding my parents home and from building a few of the other neighbors near them.
After months of trying to find the right opportunity to build our home the path was more clear than we could have ever dreamed. After a few weeks of negotiating, we owned a piece of land 6 doors down from my parents. But most importantly it was ours, ours to dream on, ours to build on and ours to begin building our life’s foundation on together. We soon came up with a plan to make this dream come true and it involved a 2004 travel trailer that was donated to us. It was a bit rough on the inside, but with my will to make it comfortable and Jenna’s will to make anything she touches “Pinterest cute” if that’s a thing we had our selves our first home!
We moved it on to the property and gave ourselves a wonderful space to be comfortable on our dirt. With a permit to build in our near grasp and more motivation and desire to build than ever we are overjoyed to call this place home and can’t wait to see the home we are dreaming of come to life!”-Bobbi C.
