This has been a horrible wait for this house. I guess I’ll appreciate it more right?… something like that. The temps dipped down below freezing…the house is already de-winterized, there is no heat on, there is no propane to turn the heat on…I’m a little worried.
I got a call from my loan broker and he said that underwriting is finally done and has given the ok to proceed to close! woohoo right? Now there is just this small matter of the interest rate, down payment amount, what our monthly payments will be….. sure would be nice to know some numbers. Apparently I must be patient today as the bank decides if the interest rate the broker offered is accepted or not. I don’t even know what it is but he’s already disclosed a rate we can live with and he said it will be lower than that..lets hope so.
So since it is looking hopeful that we will get this house closed sometime this week (praying constantly that it does), I thought I’d show you our “dream” home. It better be because we did everything wrong and are going into some mega debt compared to what we are at now!
Let me just say that first..I hate the layout of the inside, but I will get over it because at least half the year I will be either outside in the garden or out in the barn..and I can design those the way I want. I just have to have a comfy chair to crochet in and do jewelry making in the winter 😉
Ok now for Picture overload:
The front of the house
East Side- Deck and walk out basement
Looking out to the east at the barn
Off Deck looking North East. There is 15 more acres of a lower lying area off to the north that is ours as well.
View of the barn from the driveway
close to the walkout basement
Trying to decide if I should remove the bushes..
Walkway to the front door that will be changed to concrete
Trying to decide a way to partially cover the “eyesore” that is the well and electric area
Lean-to off of the back of the barn that hubby wants me to make the rabbit/chicken area. I’m thinking winter cow area.
Pond that is on our property. Hopefully it can support fish right now! The land to the left of that picture is ours as well.
Here is a better picture of what land there is..its not much..the fence is hidden in the tree line but it’s at least two acres behind the pond.
Sorry things did not line up correctly. I guess its time I learn to live with things not going as planned. Inside pics to come in the next post.
Happy Homesteading!! 😀
