Construction Journal December 2002

To make a very long story shorter and hopefully not quite so boring, here's the cliff notes version. After completely remolding our current home, we had basically outgrown it. As a symbolic gesture of an ending and new beginning (and because we just really loved this home) we decided to have our 10 year vow renewal ceremony and then put the house on the market. This was the end of November thinking that it would give us a couple of months to feel out the market since NOTHING sells over the holidays. In four days we had our first offer. It was seriously a great house. We finally accepted one on the Friday before Christmas. They were a cash deal, but wanted a maximum of thirty-day escrow. So this meant we had to work fast to find a rental for us to live while we built, finish packing and we already had a vacation planned the week between Christmas and New Year. And again it was the holidays – nothing gets done over the holidays – no one is available over the holidays! So we scrambled to find a rental and started looking for property, as soon as we knew the people actually had the cash to buy the house. We were looking for a half-acre to an acre, but stumbled across a 5-acre property up against the base of the mountains and fell in love with it. The views of all three mountain ranges were incredible! We made an offer!
