Lord willing

I haven't posted in a while because it has still been rainy. I'm really thankful for the extra time because we have been able to make some changes to the plan that we may not have thought about otherwise.

We finally got our construction loan. Banks have really gotten a lot more strict about who they will let open a construction loan. The bank that we used last time would not let you get a construction loan unless you are a licensed builder, which we are not. We had to go to several banks before we found a bank that would let us open a loan. Before you get a construction loan approved you have to get a letter from a mortgage company stating that at the time of completion they will secure your mortgage. So we have all that in place.

We've gone to look at ton of brick samples and driven around to see if we liked it on a house. We have one brick that we are interested in but it's a new brick so we are waiting to see it up. I sure hope we like it because I am ready to be over looking at bricks!

See what I mean? Isn't this torture? It's hard to imagine this on an entire house! 

Christmas in a rental home is always crazy. All of our Christmas stuff was in storage so we had to get it out. Kinda looks like the back of Fred Sanford's truck. I don't know, his stuff may have been nicer. Looks like we're paying money to store stuff we should have just set on fire.

When you're building a house, your life is super crazy. We are in a rental home that is up for sale. Trying to keep a house up while you are running everywhere is a challenge. Of course, the minute you let the place go someone will call for a showing. I swear if I kept this place spotless nobody would ever call to see it!
