I think that is exactly the way my husband feels. Today we are supposed to close on the little ranch. It was cancelled 3 times last week due to the mortgage company not doing their job. I have an estimate in the improvements we liked to do before moving in. First estimate is 42,000. I almost fainted when I heard. We do not have that kind of money so I think we will be tearing carpet and taking paneling down. They wanted 900.00 for disposing of the trash. I'm going to pay 900.00 to myself. The amount of stuff I can buy with 900.00, it is not going to happen. I wish there was no burn ban. I will be burning a lot of stuff, heck, I might turn into a little arsonist. I didn't want to go the sub-contractor way, we may have to ended up doing just that.
Once I get the key today I will go in and take pictures of the house and shop as it stands today. I miss calculate and choose the wrong profession. I should have been a handy girl, concrete, tile, granite install and all that stuff. It is where the money is. I have decorate homes and have never made that kind of money, actually I stop doing it out of sheer frustration. I will finish this post tonight, hopefully with good news. Later, Marta.
Ok, it is ours. I'm so excited, scared, stressed, hopeful, etc, etc, etc. I guess it is normal to feel this way. This little place is going to be our retirement place as far as we know. The Killeen and Fort hood area happened to be one of the areas that have been less affected by the bad economy. My business had not suffer and my husband have been with the same company for 15 years. Even though is a contract job every time the contract comes up for bids the new company retain the work force in place. We are VERY blessed. So enough blah...Photos for you all. Remember to looked at it with visionary eyes.
I felt in love with the little porch and the french door and windows. I have a vision.
I see flowers and bushes and lots of work.
I think we count so many oaks in the acreage and I'm loving it. My friend realtor got me a tree person. That is a face that you stick to the tree. I think I will buy some more.
Chickies, this all for today. Tomorrow I will give you a tour of the house. I will be interviewing contractors and getting more estimates. Blessings, Marta.
