News but Not So Good

We received word on Thursday that the appraisal came in at the same high number. Yay! Then, our mortgage lender looked at the photos attached to the appraisal. His decision, based on what I can only believe was influenced by black magic and snakes, was that the house is not "finished" and therefore does not qualify for a mortgage.  Boo! So, here we are, trying to figure out what to do. The construction loan actually expires in July so we have as many as 60 days to finish. We will have a meeting next week with the mortgage company to hammer out the details. And, yes, I am tempted to take an actual hammer to help prove my point. 

Oh well. 

Scott is a trouper, so Thursday night, he got back to work. He installed hardware on the doors in the connector.  Good job, Scotty!
 Who knew that installing door hardware would take so many tools?
Don't they look pretty?
Now if I had a dryer vent, I could put that laundry closet to work!
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
Congratulations, Karli and Joe, on this weekend's Class of 2013 Graduations!
