The closing date is August 17th, two days before my birthday. (I told Tim the house doesn’t count a bday gift.)
But seriously, now begins the slightly more daunting task of getting bids from contractors and deciding who to use and what to fix. It will be stressful, to be sure.
Anyone in the area (or who used to be in the area) should feel free to chime in on any contractors they approve of. Luckily, the bank has a list of people it’s used in the past, so we have a starting point. And we know those contractors are okay with the waiting game that is involved with getting paid by a bank.
Once we have a list of what they can do and what absolutely needs to get done (and the cost of each list), we can better figure out what we’ll spend the money on and what can wait.
Wish us good luck!
