Well, I have to admit that I was surprised by the response I got when I posted the pictures of the house Scott and I toured thinking it'd make a new and improved CDLV. You guys were all so supportive, and cheered the idea of a whole new house, with a whole new look. It was inspiring, and I appreciate it - so much!
A little investigation revealed however, that the house was unable to be mortgaged. Further, the lot was sectioned into two parcels. To purchase the house meant to purchase both parcels, each with back taxes owed, each requiring title and survey search not accommodated by the bank, and on top of that expense, there was the expense of repairing plumbing and heating systems to move into the house, leaving us cash poor and in effect, house poor, too!
After a lot of discussion, and I do mean a lot of discussion, Scott and I decided that the house just wasn't a good fit for us. Crushing blow, right? I know you all wanted to hear we were moving in and I had already ordered rugs and wallpaper!
Thanks again for cheering us on, there will be other houses ...
