Posted Friday, Sep 23rd, 2011 at 4:56am

Time it took me to decide to build on my (double) lot: 16 years.

Time it took me to be sure I was doing the right thing: still working on it.

Time it took me to refinance my house: 6 months.

Time it took me to get a large enough home equity line of credit: 4 months.

Time it took Annie and I to work with an architect to design a small house for our lot: 8 months and counting.

Time it took for the garage to be cleaned out: a couple months to find homes for the bee hive equipment, two weekends to do the rest.

Time it took the garage to be demolished: four hours!
