As I wrote on Facebook last night,
I am bone-tired and brain-tied.
We have never built a house.
We lived in the same house for 35 years,
in the same town for 38 years,
and in the same county for 55 years.
I can tell you that what "they" say is true,
"If your marriage can survive building a house,
it can survive anything."
David shuts down when he's stressed.
I stress and my colon shuts down.
So, we're a physically and emotional mess right about now.
I'm too tired to be excited.
But, that will change, when the last item has been packed
and the last box is unloaded and we're finally home.
That's right, The Beverly Hillbillies!
I can't even begin to tell you the documents
over and over and over again.
How can a "Loan Estimate" change so many times?
And how do closing costs seem to vary $1000 at the time?
And why when asking "why?" do you get the feeling that they have no idea why?
"But just transfer another $1000 just in case. We'll issue you a refund."
They have no idea what we'll have to do get another $1000.
All said and done.
the final walk-through yesterday went great!
We have a wonderful builder, a very laid back young man.
Granite counter tops, tile and wood floors were basic.
Of course, I had to pay extra for my blue door.
Some things I love about our new home...
I love that our home is in a subdivision
The mailboxes are provided and I love it.
I love my covered deck with a fan!
I love my floors!
These almost didn't happen.
Lowe's delivered the wrong order.
I just happened to drop by one afternoon to see the progress.
WRONG color, kind, style.
"Oops! Sorry! Wrong delivery!"
That's why it pays to be an assertive buyer.
I'm so ready for this to be behind us, already!
This granny just may need a rocking chair.
"Take your shoes off, Ya'll come back now, ya here?"
The Beverly Hillbillies.
Here we come!
