Yep, we did it! We looked at an old farmhouse last month, put in an offer, offer was accepted, we did a little work to get it to pass inspection and we’re closing today!
Wow, buying a house is not easy these days. There’s so much paperwork and if you own your own business and pay yourself in cash, well, let me just say, good luck. The bank wants to trace every dime that went in and out of our accounts for the last few months and since Craig pays himself in cash and sporadically, it’s not been a simple approval. We’ll be rethinking how he pays himself from now on.
Anyway, on a more exciting note…we’re moving! We haven’t moved in over 11 years. The home we live in now is a side by side duplex that we purchased with my father-in-law. He lives on one side and we live in the other. It’s really worked out great but Craig’s construction business has outgrown the space we have. So when we saw this house with a huge pole barn that’s in our school district, we had to take a look.
We both agreed right away, it seemed like the right property for us. It has two out buildings and an attached garage. FINALLY…I won’t have to clean so much snow off of …
