Life of a custom spec house...

   Once there was only a vacant lot with wild growing grass. Across the street were new houses going up and even on the very lot to its east a beautiful brick and stone custom was erected. The vacant lot could only watch and wait as progess happened all around it. The lot knew it was situated well; it even peered down at the lots across the street where all the houses were being built and moved into. Then one majical day it happened! A bobcat arrived and moved the dirt around, next came a surveyor who seemed to be calculating and then stakes went in the ground. Then there was waiting and rainy day upon rainy day. Finally a crew arrived and dug the forms for plumbing, piers and other practical purposes. The days flew by and before long a wonderful thing occurred. The lots had it's own beautiful brick and stone custom four bedroom home complete with granite, wood flooring, marble shower, covered patio and more! What a wonderful present this lot had become for someone or a family. 3940 Avalon, Irving,Tx. 75061 proudly presented by 24-Hour Realty. www.realestateservant.com   :)

The even more dramatic story of the lot known as 3933 Carver is coming soon. Foundation forms and rough in plumbing are the evidence that a proud new custom house will stand where a decrepit wood frame house once existed!
