When we moved to Sfumato in 2013, Whitney had but one strong caveat: We'd either expand the house or move by the five year mark.

Well, we're a bit past the five year mark, but we are in the midst of an expansion. The design process took a while (to be documented later) and we had a few false and partial starts, but we're now in full swing. Today the contractor did their initial clearing of the construction site, immediately adjacent to our existing home.

If the weather plays nice we should be envelope complete by end of the year and move-in-ready by mid-March.
