Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Iowa County, Chad A. Kepros, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., Greer, J., and Mahan, S.J.  Opinion by Greer, J.  (6 pages)

            Steven Krug appeals from the decree dissolving his marriage to Amy Krug.  He challenges the court’s decision to give Amy sole legal custody and physical care of the parties’ minor child, K.K.  He argues they should share joint legal custody and K.K. should be placed in his physical care.  He also challenges the court’s award of the marital home to Amy and, after providing no evidence of his own regarding the value of the home, complains of the district court’s valuation.  To correct that omission, Steven asks that we remand so more evidence about the value can be presented.  Steven argues the district court abused its discretion in ordering him to pay $10,000 of Amy’s attorney fees.  Amy asks that we affirm and requests that Steven pay $3000 of her appellate attorney fees.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court fully and carefully considered the facts and legal issues in the written decree, and we agree with its well-reasoned conclusions.  We affirm the district court’s decree and award Amy $3000 in appellate attorney fees.
