We closed on our house yesterday- finally! We finished construction in July, and moved in shortly after, but the market has been so crazy lately that closing in any timely fashion has been near impossible. We finished building right about the time the market plunged, and the underwriters are running fine-tooth combs over everyone closing to make sure they won't default on their loans. I'm so grateful my family is in banking, and knows the 'ins' and 'outs' of all the paperwork! We were so glad to sign those papers yesterday and be done with it! With a bit of a refund we received at closing, we bought some chocolate edging and made some woodchip beds, bought blinds, and the paint for the office stripes. We built on a little over an acre, so not having blinds has really not been an issue, but I am ready for them nonetheless. I am so looking forward to sod and woodchips, hostas, and evergreens! The house will look so pretty with a decent yard.
