Budgeting, paying cash....

Know your needs when looking for your next property. We had a specific list of basic amenities that we considered a necessity in our new home location.
When we purchased, we were very aware that we would need to add a new roof (still has the original roof from the 70's) & we need a garage.
Mr. Perky does car repairs and has a huge amount of tools of the trade. We have multiple vehicles (very typical for a mechanic), plus he wanted to have an extended garage so he could wall off a portion for teaching classes (he teaches Utah Concealed Carry).

He did all the research and opted for a company out of North Carolina to save us about $4,000. Again we paid cash.

They made the trip up to Virginia twice. Once to pour the concrete slab and the second time to build the structure. 

Another step completed on our journey. Mr. Perky is pleased.

For more information...
I am currently adding more blogs posts to explain a little more in detail about how we got to this point in our journey. These posts are listed here under"Financial".

Romans 13: 8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. (NIV) Note that the previous chapter is talking about actually paying what our owe.


  1. I'm interested in how much the garage cost you and the company you purchased from. :) We are in a similar stage of our journey -- moving to the farm in approximately 3 months (ACK!) No garage yet, we're saving (paying off debts too) and shopping for one. Thanks!!

  2. Kellie,
    We used Bob Gould. Tell him the Moes (and Perky Prepping Gramma) sent you. :D
    We will be moving in about 3 months also. Where are you located?
