House Update : Signs of Progress

SOOC Saturday

After the months of looking for housing and then waiting for the loan...

it's really nice to see signs of progress:)

BIG truck tracks to the lot.

Two temporary buildings.... sounds better than Porta-Johns, right:)

Mounds of dirt to level off the place for the house.
And the lines for electricity... this was an answer to much prayer last week:)

And we met our contractor!! A nice guy who seems to really know his stuff and doesn't mind answering all our "newbie" questions!

And we asked him the BIG question, "When it will all be ready for us?"

His answer was "120 days from when the house is on the lot."

NOT what I wanted to hear :( 120 days is a LONG time... but I was glad that it was said. I know a little more how much longer we have before we have to start packing up.

And as much as I want the process to go faster, it will probably be VERY nice that my college classes will be over and homeschooling (at least our core work) will be completed before we will move. Again, not the timeline I wanted... but it's probably the best for our sanity;)

Oh man, that seems so long. However time seems to go by so fast! The timing of your classes and homeschool will be much easier to deal with moving though.

Wow, I didn't know you guys were building a house. And I thought I had it bad during our kitchen remodel, lol. It may seem like a long time to wait but will be so worth it.

Gosh - that is a really long time... but it's one of those things where you know it will be worth the wait! we've got a few house projects on the horizon as well - nothing like you're doing though :)
