I dropped off a check for the appraisal on Monday. They should be working on that now and it will hopefully be done before the end of the week. He also asked me if we had a preferred closing attorney which surprised me. I hope that means we can close soon if the appraisal comes back ok. That’s still a big “if”, but I’m glad we should only have to wait a few more days to find out.
David had to mow the land this past weekend. He had hoped he wouldn’t have to, but we didn’t get the construction started soon enough. The Kid and I joined him as he finished up on Sunday. I took these pictures from where the start of the driveway will be.
The house will go near the middle of this next picture. The back corner will be near the tree with the big top near the middle.
The house in the next picture is our closest and most visible neighbor. I plan to plant some landscaping once the house is done so we can’t see their house as well and they can’t see us.
There are a lot of trees growing in the burn piles now. This one is about 6′ tall and I’m trying to figure out if it’s another walnut tree. There’s another one like it and I’m tempted to dig them up and move them so we can save them. We have a handful of good sized walnut trees that are in the way of the house. I’m tempted to see how much it would cost to move them out of the way instead of cutting them down. Walnut trees can be worth a lot of money so we wouldn’t mind growing some for future use. I hate to lose the ones we already have since they are already started.
