just got word that the building permits are ready! woot-woot!

which means that we’re just waiting for the paperwork to finish up on the construction loan so that we can close, which should happen in the next few days.

and then–yes–we can START.

after nine months of planning (yes, long enough to have incubated a baby), i’m not sure i’ll truly believe it until the bobcat currently sitting in front of the house fires up for the first time, and they start pulling off the roof.

but’s going to happen. ┬áit’s going to HAPPEN.

and soon.
