I have received word from the realtor that the owner and son are proceeding with estimates and repairs to the 174-5 year old house. They have called in the plumber, and termite inspector, and are waiting for the estimate from the electrician to proceed.
When I last reported to you about the Mountain Farmlet, you will recall that we were asking for them to repair, or discount the price by 15K for repairs on the following:
- and roof
Things seem to be moving in a very positive direction! This makes me very hopeful, that we will be able to close the deal and take ownership of this antique home.
I know you think we have lost our minds, but this is a once in a lifetime event. Yes, it is an old house, but after the repairs we feel that she still has a few good years left in her. The house will never be perfect, it wasn’t when it was first built! But, it is precisely those
imperfections quirks that make it such a charming old estate.
We really are looking forward to living there on the mountain.
Again, thank you to everyone for your goodwill and prayers for us. They encourage us.
When, and realistically if, she becomes ours, then she will become
The Mountain Farmlet
What else? 😉
