Building Oak Haven – selling our current home

Quick update. It’s been another busy week. We spent it working on our to do list, getting our Schertz home ready to put on the market with Keller Williams.

I did a little shopping, picking up a few items to add some color to the house. Jon pressure washed the outside of the house, along with the driveway and sidewalk while I worked on rearranging, packing and touch up painting. Jon also picked up a load of sod and we planted grass in our old garden area in the back yard and the side yard where all the grass had died. We mulched our flower beds and a xeriscaped pathway I had made. We also took most of the potted plants I had up to the new house and set them outside of our camper. So far, they have survived the deer. Friday the photographer came and took pictures of the house. 

Paul Swoyer brought out their equipment to start digging out our septic today, A&M Electric continues to run electrical wire and set up outlets, switches and lighting, and Chavez’s construction guys are installing our porch and patio ceilings and will finish up/fix the last few framing details and issues. Ron from Bill’s cabinet shop also came out to take measurements for our cabinets. 

In the midst of it all, we had a day full of house showings. 

Grace & Peace


About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.
