Well, we didn’t get the house we put in an offer for. That was no big surprise, considering it had over 10 offers on it, but still, it would have been nice to get it.
So, we’re back to the hunt. Cathy, our real estate agent, sent us 3 listings which we’re going to view this weekend, plus we saw one more we’d like to throw in. One of the houses said it had 2 active roof leaks, and “settlement issues”…that one should be interesting.
We’re also moving ahead on our house plans. We met with a second architect and his associate yesterday and really like them. They said they would work up an estimate for the cost of the house and also tell us their fee. They showed us a spectacular home in the Key West style that they designed for another client, so I think we’d look at a (much) simpler version of that for our house.
In the meantime, K’s drama class is putting on a production of “A Christmas Carol” this Thursday and Friday night and I imagine that will keep us quite busy.
