"When it's too good to be true it usually is"
I'm trying to find the silver lining in this house thing and I just can't. I love it, I want it....but it's a mess. Inspection reports came back and the previous owners basically abandoned their home and any issues it had, just left it to rot (figuratively and literally). No bandaid will fix these issues, it needs to go to the hospital just to survive. But do we want to take that on? The overall attributes of this home are what we love...location, school districts, open floor plan, vaulted ceilings, sq. footage. *sigh*
We spent yesterday making phone calls like crazy, I left work early to go see two new houses that were just listed. Insurance company won't even insure the new house in it's present condition. The bank wants a detailed estimate from a contractor for mandatory repairs BY THURSDAY! We just got the report on Tuesday! I had class Tues night and now I'm back at work trying to juggle work and personal (REALLY hard when it's busy).
Just needed to vent. I haven't seen my stamp room since Friday and I think it's taking it's toll. *lol*
