So this week we’ll be taking our second trip to the property. It’s not actually ours yet. We have an accepted offer, financing, and are progressing toward closing. However the bank that owns the property is quite behind on doing the things they agreed to. So we’re in a bit of a holding pattern. Neither of us has ever built a house before, so we’re sort of learning about the process as we go. There’s a lot to do, and it all has to be done in a certain order with all the proper permits. We’re just getting a handle on this now and are beginning to wonder whether it might be worth just hiring a general contractor to work through the details. This week’s trip is in part to make that sort of decision, and in part to let our son Will see the property. Thus far he’s only seen pictures. I think he’s going to like it, a lot.
