This has been one of the most hectic weeks in my life! as I mentioned in my last post, we went out on Saturday to look at the house we wanted to buy with a friend who has 35 years in construction. Although cosmetically the house needs work (renters basically destroyed the interior over the past year), structurally, the house is in excellent shape and is of the best quality. We like the house because we can revovate it the way we want, and don’t care about the cosmetic defects. We even plan to tear down and move some walls, so the large holes really aren’t a concern.
Since last weekend was a holiday weekend here in Canada, and nothing was open on Monday, we went back up on Tuesday to put an offer on the house. The bank sent us a counter-offer yesterday, but we countered with the same price we went in with. It is a repossession and we know the bank wants to get rid of it. We are hoping to hear back today on whether they accepted our counter-counter-offer.
The house is in a very small Ontario town, close to the Quebec border. It’s only a 50 minute drive from our current house, so we’ll still be hanging out on Fridays as we always have. It’s on the very outskirts of this small ton, so when we look out our front door, all we see is field and forest. When we sit on the back deck, all we see for miles is rolling hills and forest. The only neighbours are on either side of us, but we will have our privacy. We plan on redoing the back deck into a multi-tier thing with a nice large hot tub on one of the decks. We are already working on the design plans for that deck with the BBQ and dining section on the upper tier, a lounge area with wet bar on the middle tier, and the hot tub with a large built-in, deck lever suntanning mattress on the lower tier. Of course that mattress will be king-sized, and used for suntanning by day, and group fucking by night!
The people who put the offer on our current house have had their financing approved and had a house inspector over yesterday. He spent a couple of hours going through our house and when he was done, told us that our house was very nice and in excellent condition. That should keep the buyers happy! So basically it is sold, but we are just waiting on all the official paperwork. It’s not really sold until the conditions are waived and everything is done on paper, but everything looks good.
The next thing is planning the actual move! All this is happening REALLY soon! We agreed on a moving date of June 17th, and we don’t even have a mover yet! We can’t even book one until we have everything completely finalized. But now we have to start packing and finish going through everything. I have lots of stuff to get rid of, including furniture. In our current house, we have 4 full sets of living room furniture, but only need 2 sets for the new house. The new house has a large country eat-in kitchen, but doesn’t have a dining room. So we need to get rid of our dining room stuff here as we are just bringing our current kitchen set. Then of course, there is years upon years of accumulated crap! I’d love to just toss everything and but all new 😉
I’ll keep you up-to-date on what is happening over the next couple of weeks. I’ll finally get my life back soon!
