Progress is being made in the whole "house" thing. They came yesterday and dug holes and poured concrete with anchors in them so that when the "house" gets here, they have it anchored in concrete. I think this is just the beginning of a headache (that is worth it) to come. Day before yesterday, I had to drive to Woodlawn to pay $450 to get a water meter put on the land. We had to flag where we wanted it, they come and put a meter box and then we have to run the line ourselves. It has to be a certain pipe and so many feet from this and so many feet from that and when you are done, they have to come and inspect what you did. Then, when the "house" is there, we have to call C & L and get the electric going...that is $286 plus extra for us because we want the lines under the ground. The septic tank man can also come and that is $3300. Then we have to insulate our water pipes and change out any pipes on the water drains that do not have the "u shape". We also have to get gravel up there for the driveway. THEN, we have to wait on the finishers to put our "house" together and fix any cracks in the sheetrock, cabinets, etc. I am one of those people that wants everything done at one time. I know I can't plant shrubs or anything until spring and I want to landscape it. I also want 3 or 4 Bradford Pears on either side of the driveway, a front porch, a garage of some sort and a storage building. Is that too much to ask? haha Most of this will probably have to wait until next year...funds are getting low after all the stuff we HAVE to get.
You can look at the bottom of my page for the new Twilight Trailer. So excited!!!
Congratulations to Wade and Debbi Christiansen!! They found out they are having a girl!!!
