The House: an Update!
So tomorrow night we sign papers that should give us the mortgage money we need.
Today we had the building inspector in and he said that it was a good house, solidly built, only needed a bit of tweaking. Only one minor worry, which he said we should deal with. They had insulated the house with the blue foamy thing that dries to something kind of like armour. Mostly that's the best kind, but apparently there is one kind that looks the same as all the others but has urea formaldehyde in it. This is something that our insurance company could refuse us insurance on, if we don't validate it. I'm just thanking God that I told the realtor we needed till NEXT Tuesday to get everything sorted, while encouraging him to tell the vendors that we really do want to buy the house.
So, we've drawn up a floor plan and we can get most of our furniture in, the good stuff, anyway. The rest, well, you have to know when to let go. We have three lockers here full of stuff that needs to be stored dry (i.e. books, mostly; photos, that kind of thing).
If all goes well with the foam insulation we are going to get the insurance sorted, get our lawyer, and buy this fantastic little bungalow only four houses down from the best little village inside a city you can imagine.
I'm so excited.
