No I am not talking about the presidency.  I am talking about our moving situation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  We have almost (99%) have secured a contractor, now onto the construction loan.  For those of you out there who are naive like me when it comes to building a house I found that some of this information was rather shocking.  First you get two loans, a construction loan at a somewhat higher percentage rate which converts to a morgage when your house is finished.  Am I the only moron who didn’t know this?  Secondly, you have to have this whole worksheet thing with yor estimated expenses.  I am getting a migraine.  So I thought this week I would call, secure the loan, start digging next week.  Little did I know!  It’s all good, life is a series of lessons, this one in construction.  But who case, we are that much closer to a decision!

    Girl, just wait until it starts raining and won’t stop, the drywallers don’t show up, and the flooring is back ordered….it is the joys of building!

    One thing to learn…change order…and how to avoid them. Make sure to get all the light switches and outlets you could ever think you might want up front in the design. If they add them in later they will cost 3 times as much!!
