So it’s been so long since I posted and so much has happened in such a short time!
After over 3 years of looking and our entire 8.5 years of being married of hoping, we have FINALLY been able to purchase land to build our dream home on! I am so excited! We are moving back to the town that the hubs grew up in and it offers a small school (with a preschool!) and is a much quieter life.
The road to buy our land wasn’t all that easy unfortunately. We thought we were buying 9 acres and figured we’d get it surveyed when we owned it. We did do a percolation test before buying to make sure we’d be able to have a septic system and it perced beautifully! Our septic company told us we’d be crazy not to purchase it.
We financed about 40% of the property, so the bank was doing their research and come to find out that it did not have a clean title which meant no title insurance. Well GR! The way to clean the title? The seller had to pay for survey! Turns out…we bought 13 acres. WAHOO!
We are so excited to start our homestead. We’ve picked our house plan, we have our dreams of the layout…now to sell our current home. It’s been fun, but I’m ready for the house of my dreams and looking forward to designing and loving every part of my home. 🙂
